Abstract

A transportation pallet for a floor-standing data processor allows the recipient to unload the processor without tools or moving equipment. The figure is a top view of the pallet 10 holding a processor 11. Two rails 12 carrying slidable feet 13 are initially fastened underneath pallet 10 with wingbolts at 14. To move the processor off the pallet, the wingbolts are removed and rails 12 swung outward about pivots 15, as indicated by arrows 16. This lowers the front of pallet 10 to floor level, so that processor 11 can be slid along guides 17 downward onto the floor, as indicated by arrow 18.
