Cisco clarifies that:
The CRS-1 16 slot line-card and fabric-card chassis can be tipped and
rested on its side (not front, nor rear) only if needed in
order to get through low doorways or overcome other height restrictions
encountered when you transport the chassis to the installation
If you need to move the chassis on its side, it is recommended that
you move the chassis in the "As Shipped" condition, specified by the manuals
listed in the Introduction section of this
document. In other words, there should be neither added hardware nor power
shelves installed during this move.
The CRS-1 16 slot line-card and fabric-card chassis can be tilted
either front-to-rear or side-to-side, but not rested,
during transport in order to get through low height
Support the chassis properly and safely in order to protect both
equipment and movers.
Cisco does not provide step-by-step tilting instructions nor
instructions on the move itself, since the condition and environment of each
site can be very different. It is recommended that you conduct the appropriate
planning of the move in advance of the installation. Refer to the site planning
guide referenced in the Introduction section of
this document for more information.
If the CRS-16 chassis needs to be lifted via a crane or other lifting
mechanism, attachment points such as the M10 bolt-holes present on the chassis
should not be used. These are not designed for lifting purposes. Place the
chassis on or in an appropriately specified mechanism which has the necessary
lifting points to which the crane or lifting mechanism can be attached.
Additional connections can be made to the movement handles on the left and
right-hand sides of the chassis in order to help provide vertical stability but
these must not be the primary load bearing elements.
Ideally, consult with the crane operating company since they are the
best resource you can use in order to advise you on what solution to
Cisco recommends the use of professional movers or riggers in order
to accomplish these tasks because professional movers are best equipped with
the appropriate tools and are well versed in the correct safety
