At my previous place of business, we used lifting widgets of the Edmo 
WP80 persuasion - I realise this is a bit shy of the ton and half you 
want to lift, but I did successfully remove an IBM Bladecenter H using 2 
of these... without breaking it.

They were quite reliable for ordinary servers, and I'd exect they have 
something a bit bigger too....
