The future purchasers of this gorgeous cottage property were absolutely clear that, unless we could replace the existing old and dangerous lift with one of ours, they would not purchase it. We saw no problems and they went ahead with the real estate deal and the new lift.
We removed the old lift but left the pieces off to the side. We modified the existing motor house to serve as our engine room though we mounted our winch directly to the track, our standard practice. After we completed the track using the installation hoist we converted it to serve as a mobile platform and used that to remove all the old track. Then we removed the hoist dolly and installed the standard dolly and car.
This was the first lift to use 3/8" compacted aircraft cable rather than the industry standard 5/16" cable. We opted for the thicker cable to make the ride smoother and to add to an already generous safety margin.
