Based on my experiences with System/36's, 8100's, and other IBM machinery..
the thing almost certainly has a welded steel frame. I took all the panels
off and the dual 14" disks out of a 5360, and I'll be damned if I didn't
only remove about 250lbs., tops. BTW, be CAREFUL picking up 5360's with a
forklift, they are very unbalanced by the humongous transformer on the power
supply end, my dad and I went to unload mine, and it started to try to take
a dive off the forklift attachment on our tractor.
