The heaviest rackmount (rather than framemount -- there's some heavy-ass 
IBM framemount gear out there) item I ever mounted high in a rack was a 
DEC GIGAswitch.  I did it singlehandedly too.  It was a bitch.  I used a 
high motorcycle scissors lift to get it high enough to slide it back 
into the rack.
