What is the difference between Hydraulic and Traction Lifts?
Hydraulic Lifts are lifts that are powered through an electronic pump which transmits hydraulic oil to a jack and moves the lift up and down through the piston attached at the base of the lift.

Traction Lifts are lifts that are powered by an electrical motor and moves the lift up and down using a roping, sheave and counterweight balancing system. The lifts can be a machine room or machine room-less type.

Disadvantages: – Slow Speed – For Low Rise Buildings – High Heat Producing System – Consume more energy (electricity) – High Maintenance Cost in the longer term
What are the Advantages and Disadvantages of Traction Lift?
Advantages: – Fast Speed – For High Rise Buildings – Energy Efficient – Smoother Ride
Disadvantages: – More Costly – Requires a bigger Lift Shaft
