Where can I get a lift for moving a 7718 weighing 800lbs?

Can anyone make a recommendation for a mechanical lift needed to move a fully loaded Nexus 7718?

If you're in a colocation

If you're in a colocation facility, check with them - they often have equipment available for customers to use. If you need to buy one for only occasional use it can be expensive.

Mainline has a manual hydraulic lift for US$1299 list price that handles up to 880 lbs:

I've used one of them at a former employer and it works fine.

I haven't seen one in action but Serverlift makes the powered SL-1000X that can handle up to 1000 lbs:

Personally I'd remove the cards and mount the chassis first and then reinsert the cards.

You really don't want to put

You really don't want to put this chassis high up.  You'll ruin the centre-of-gravity of the rack.  You may want to install the chassis around one to three RU from the floor.  

 

I'm with Marvin.  Take off all the line cards, fan tray and power supplies and you should have a metal shell which three people can lift.
