    O6d change out

    What is the best tool/equipment to safely lift, remove and replace O6D compressors on Liebert CRAC units?

    Harbor Freight has a hydraulic lift platform that I've used. Cheap by comparison.
    I like "pecmsg's" solution.
    The platform I mentioned, you would have to scoot the compressor onto it. Most guys just muscle it onto a dolly.
    Being close to the ground makes it a lot easier and no roof hatch.
    Give me a relay with big enough contacts, and I'll run the world!

    You can be anything you want......As long as you don't suck at it.

    If a person wants to create a machine that will be more likely to fail...Make it complicated.

    I havent work on a liebeit for awhile but if it the kind with the compressors on the end. One on top other below , blower in the bottom. Take 10' double strut,unstut a trolley, a come long , 4x4 . Stick strut 2' over the end resting on the 4x4 spread over the end of cabinet tie down other end of strut with a strap. Never forget to put a screw close to the end of the strut to keep trolley from rolling off the end bacause they fall really fast.. Eye bolt for compressor and cleavse for the trolley. Can use this on any rtu's.
