Can MIDDLE ATLANTIC AXS series racks be disassembled?

I have just got my rack and it looks as though it won't fit through a section in the house and I have no square head bits to try and take it apart, so can MIDDLE ATLANTIC AXS series racks be disassembled?

My build thread

Couldn't pour water out of a boot with instructions on the heel.

Do you know what Nemesis means?

Did your dealer assemble it for you? The AXS come flat packed in pieces (top/bottom plate, side rails, etc.). But yes, the AXS comes apart. Look for the bolts in the top/bottom corners.

(and to be sure - the AXS series are the pull-out racks)

It came assembled from Middle Atlantic.

It is one of these. but it has solid sides, not open ones. To be sure it is a pull out rack and not a pull out swivel rack.

It looks like this, but does not rotate.

Oh, you mean the one with the steel enclosure... Different model, different story. The AXS rack itself can be disassembled, but the ERK enclosure (which I think is the model you have) is "Fully welded construction for strength"... Not going to come apart...

I am in trouble. The sides are welded. Thanks for the help.

OK, I drilled the welds out and I am able to take the rack apart. Hopefully I will be able to get this thing to fit.
