Lift 55: A Four-Person Serene Forest Ride

Model: 4-Person (750-pound capacity)
Track: 140' at 30°
Year: 2013

These owners had considered lifts and driveways several times and final decided the time was right to go for the lift.

The upper platform of this lift is hidden at the back end of a garden and will blend in nicely once the station platform is built. Because the track is low to the ground for the upper 60 feet, we located the motor and winch drum at the top end, tucked away inside the track. The panel, which had to be mounted separately from the track, is bolted to a welded steel frame lagged into the bedrock. 

The tallest legs are about 10 feet off the ground. The ride through the forest is serenely picturesque. 

Thanks to our proprietary installation hoist, the construction process was less difficult, less expensive, and less invasive.
