I'm going to lift my dissasembled one when I get home on the scale. I think all together it's over 100lbs but the individual parts are nowhere close to that. I think the tray that it sits on is half the weight and the loader part up front is significantly heavier than it looks.

I know what you mean, Buck. I just had no idea how involved drive
replacement might be. At over 100 pounds, even remove and replace is
pretty involved. I would be totally guessing on what else is required, but
imagine power and data cables are the bulk of the issue, aside from finding
and removing/replacing the bolts on the rack. There are people here who
likely could do all of that. There were a number of servers that were
decommissioned. Between 1U and 3U high. They were stacked like cordwood
until they were sent to be destroyed.

considered a customer replaceable component.

With a machine that is not on maintenance, it sort of accidentally
becomes a customer replaceable item.

Any WAG as to how heavy a 3590 E11 is?

103 pounds, according to
