    Was this lift relocated from somewhere else?

      Yes, the former Harmony Express high-speed quad that was replaced by a high-speed 6 pack the same year. I believe Leitner Poma did do a bit of work on this lift when they relocated it as well, such as the wooden undercover and replacing some of the sheave assemblies.
