That begs the question who in Sweden or rest of continental
Europe wants to go visit Ragge by truck :-) I can testify
that one SA600 is heavy like hell (more than a VAX 6000) but
its manageable with two people and a liftgate truck.

I *love* RA90 drives, they are manageable and yet impressive
bricks of old hardware. Some do go bad after a while just
sitting in storage, but with a little bit of gentle excercise
in warm temperature, many of them can be revived. Don't
throw them into the dumpster if at all possible!

The 220V is no big problem. I was surprized to see that *all*
of my RA90s and RA92 were manufactured in Germany, so they
are used to being shipped overseas. But it is a lot of money.
They show up in continental US too.
