  Heh. I feel your pain. When I picked up the MV-II that Terry posted
her last month, he and I had to hump the 42" DEC rack cabinet down a
flight of 32" stairs. The rack, with vent panels on, is like 28" wide.
I have no idea what the damn thing weighs.
  (Wait! I do so know. The PDP-11/93 came in an identical cabinet.
With 2 ~35lb BA23s installed, it weighed 385lb. I know that for sure
because I got charged by the pound....)
  Anyway, Terry & I hustled that rack, 2 BA23s with the MV & expansion
cab, a PDP-11/53 in BA23, and a PDP-8/a with dual 8" floppies down those
damn stairs. Fun. Not.
  I'd like to bring one of the 42" cabinets upstairs to house all these
'23s, but the Spousal Equivalent flatly refuses to help. ;)
