Think about how big a case of beer is.  Now, imagine *only*
fitting 6 (or 8) transformers in there.  These are *huge*.
I.e., just being able to lift the box means you've got
your hands supporting the xformers (if you tried to lift
the box from the top, you'd just rip the bottom out).

E.g. put 6 U60 power supplies in a box.  In order to
lift that box, you;ll find you are supporting damn near
all of the power supplies *directly* -- it won't rip.
