    Why aren’t these a quad? Why is Partek the only manufacturer selling double-doubles anymore? Why are double-doubles out of vogue? Is it more efficient sometimes to run a quad instead?

      Im also very curious why the resort went with a double double instead of a quad on a new lift, if anyone knows? Theres no question its less efficient to run two smaller engines independently than a single larger motor, same with maintenance with having to replace twice as many sheaves, cable, mechanical equipment and tensioning. Its obviously better for reliability since the lift has a backup lift built in, but beyond that, this installation is confusing

    This is one of the lifts that was not replaced this year, the other being the existing quad. I’m hoping the reason is because they’re holding out for a detachable. I think it would be the lift that makes the most sense to go detachable. It’s the first “long” lift that beginners use, so it tends to stop a lot.
