That's a HEAVY 450 megabyte SDI hard drive.  If it hasn't been parked

The RA81 will work with a PDP/11 or VAX that has the proper controller.
They're big, heavy, and power-hungry.  For anyone wanting to one them
for any reason other than to relive old memories, I'd recommend an SDI
bridge with a newer drive on the other end.
