Let me guess Thyssen came up with machine roomless first it wasn't KONE or Schindler. Do they have codes in the appalchian areas yet. GIT R DONE.......................

George Westinghouse,

If that's your real name, who'd want to be named after the biggest piece of shit elevator ever invented, BUT... We can't pick our drunken parents...

You seem to only have done half your homework... I only live in the southeast now... Doesn't mean I'm native to these mountains or these mountain folk... Which this is a nice area to live and with the exception of the damn Floridiots moving up here, it would be a lot nicer...

Floridiots... You'd fit right in George...

Dan, Will, Forgive the last guy who posted the reponse before this one. See he works for a garbage scab outfit called Abel, recently sold to a buy out chop shop. Seems Abel has a problem keeping jobs, I mean when you loose jobs to Union shops and your a cheap scab company who charges half price speaks volumes about there service, am I right?

Hi There, I think George W has a great name after a great man. GW and Tesla did some great things for all of us. I am waiting to see that ISIS also but I cut through one of a sample piece of the kevlar ropes with my leatherman. What would you choose if it was your money kevlar rope that you had to buy from the oem for $$$$$$ that can be cut through with a leatherman or standard wire rope that you can buy from anyone in the the Yellow pages for $. Isnt the machine in the pit also where all the water is.

-- Jim (, February 13, 2005.


You got the sharpest bad ass leatherman I've ever heard of, How do you get such an edge on the blade of a leatherman tool ? Is that what ya'll carry fot tools out there ? Just bustin your chops...

Actually, that kevlar rope gets it strength from how its wound, not it's cross section.

Also, the machine is on top of the car.

Will & Jim, I've seen our 400A machine roomless, I must confess I was a little skeptical at first but it's pretty slick. Ours uses regular cables but I understand the Machine and brake are throw aways when they take a shit. The ride is pretty good, little vibration felt in the platform but I guess thats to be expected due to the underplatform sheaves. The control is a modified Miconic TX R5 so the control will probably be the strong point. All in all the 4 going on my route seem pretty cool "SO FAR" :)

Seen a couple ISIS . The machine is in the pit and the overhead sheaves are made of composite material. The whole elevator is basically a northern. As far as the ropes go they were having problems with the outer cover wearing off quick due to sheave miss alignment and ropes not tensioned properly

Looking at their website they say a 2 stop is installed in 2 days! I can't see that happening. Also insurance companies are going to fear insuring these in my opinion since the quipment is in the pit.

-- Brian (, February 18, 2005.

Edit from my previous post. It's installed in 10 days which is still smoking fast. Must have a ton of plug and play.

-- Brian (, February 18, 2005.

Kone EcoSpace installs in 7 days.

I heard Isis has been pulled from North America, even existing orders have been cancelled. Has anybody heard the same?

-- Bob Tiller (, March 04, 2005.


Seven days to install an entire elevator? How many stops?


-- Dan (, March 05, 2005.

I heard Thyssen was having problems with synthetic rope wearing out costing them a fortune. Sounds like they didn't leave it in the test tower long enough, ooops.......

-- Mark (, March 07, 2005.

I hear that Kone can install a 2 stop Eco in 7 days.. Obviously more stops = more time, but it sounds sweet.

I'd love to hear more about what is happening to Isis?

-- Bob (, March 07, 2005.


Above you stated that the machine is on car top. To me it looks like it's in the pit. Is there more than one version?
