View Full Version : 850/Extreme Rackmount Problems

08-23-2011, 12:51 PM
Anyone else had problems getting their 850 or Extreme rackmount to work? Mine, direct from Newtek, is about 1/2 inch too narrow the space between sliders, so the unit, with sliders attached, will not fit in to the telescoping sliders. Arg!

Okay, I got it. I had to get the telescoping rails a little further apart. The rack in question might be a hair too narrow. Now... will I be able to get it out??? :)

We ordered sliding rails with our 850 and I had to dismantle our road case to spread the rack rails to get it in. Even so, it's still a snug fit and has to be encouraged to come out.

We ordered the rack mount kit with our 850. The printed directions do not match the model of rails we received. Once we got it very snugly fit in the rack, it probably will not easily be removed. Might have to call the fire department to bring in the jaws of life!
