There was this Sun branded Fujitsu M244X 9-track tape drive listed on ebay
for $1 opening bid and local pickup only.  I won the auction and went
down to pick it up.  *MAN*, that thing is heavy.  I used a couple 2x4s
and one of those little cinching straps to essentially winch it into
the back of my car.  I had no help around and it was too big (and too
many sharp metal edges) to lift into the car by myself.  So yes, a
litle ingenuity and a little patience are all you need most of the
time :).
