Lift 75: A long spectacular high-off-the-ground lift.

Model: 4-Person (750-pound capacity).
Track: 190' at 32°
Year: 2017

The 9 story high stairs leading from the cottage to the water were difficult so the owners (and their friends and neighbours) were looking forward to having this lift to make the trip easy.

We would have liked to use our track mounted hoist but the top end was too high off the ground and there was no way to build the new sections except on the ground so we used the gantry crane on the first 6 sections.

 The top station is about 10' off the ground and protected by the interlocked gate. The station was still under construction when this photo was taken.

 It's a long long way to the cottage.
