Which to buy

greenspun.com : LUSENET : Elevator Problem Discussion : One Thread

I am building a new house (ocean front) and I intend to have an elevator installed in it. My question is! this is going to be a rental home, therefore should I buy an electric unit or should I purhase a hydrolic one. At this point I can choose from one or the oter and both seem to run about the same price, so naturally I am thinking about, which one would have the less headachs. I look for your reply and would appreciate any help you might be able to give me. Hugh Parnell Manteo, N.C.

contact THYSSENKRUPP ELEVATOR via internet or phone for your nearest dealer. A roped hydraulic elevator would probably suit your needs best.

How many floors???....a roped hydraulic would be a waste of money if any less than 4 floors....also with a lot of companies hydralics to put it bluntly... stink...due to the fact they leak and the type of oil they use....im not saying dont use a hydralic but if you know someone that has put one in a house go and check it out.

anyway why do u need to put one in a house...from my experience most people us the stairs anyway as its faster and the novalty of having a lift in a house wears off very fast.
