The E450s shipped like that as well - I got one from anysystem.com in just such a box, I saved the box figuring I'd *NEVER* be able to ship the E450 if I didn't have that case/ramp/etc...

I was neat to see, but over time I have come to the conclusion that my E450 may wind up like "Mike Mulligan and his steam shovel" [0] and remain with this house if/when I ever move...
