Anyone got any idea what the aprox weight of a half size server rack (with stuff in it) would be?

Assume a 24U dell rack with 4x1Us and 4x2Us, switch, kvm unit, cables and a couple of low end UPS devices inside.

It sounds like you are trying to move a rack between two locations. This question may help: serverfault.com/questions/49998/… –  David Mackintosh Feb 8 '10 at 17:23
    
intersting link thanks. Actually it was to see if the lift in our building can handle the whole rack in one go. –  dansquid Feb 9 '10 at 9:55
    
out of interest, Even though we were within the weight limit. We broke the lift. –  dansquid Jun 18 '13 at 7:54

Have a look at the capacity planner - it should show you a weight calculation by model, as well as quite a few other things
