    Were these drive terminals meant to look like the Stealth detach terminals? I kind of see the resemblance.

      Maybe. Its the Galaxy II, which was the modified version of the Galaxy, which I believe was a Garaventa CTEC motor room. It does look a lot like the Stealth 2, and at Snowbird, Mid-Gad has a Galaxy next to Gadzoom (Stealth 2). Maybe they chose the Galaxy to match the Stealth?

    This lift’s drive terminal is very similar to the Green Machine quad at Hoodoo in Oregon.
