    At some point, the drive was upgraded. The lift runs slightly faster and now has a slow button. Previously, it was on or it was off. It is also much quieter now.

    Here’s a video taken in 2010. The beginning captures just how loud it was pretty well.

    This video was taken 2 years ago and it has the drive upgrade. It is much quieter.

      ahhhh. A nice low hum. I like that. Though not really much of a workhorse lift, given how short it is, but still.

      I remember the old motor sound pretty well. Used to have perhaps the best startup sound out there, I always thought the lift was a diesel when I was little

        It certainly got everyone’s attention who was standing in line for the adjacent Comet lift when this thing would rumble to life. They hardly ever ran it in the first couple years of the Comet lift. It was frustrating because it caused long lines for a run that was very short. By my last year as a passholder (2012-2013), they were much better about running it when needed.

    I’m not a fan of those style Hall drive terminals, they just seem rather… cheap? But I’ve never worked on one either.

    They do clearly seem to take good care of this lift. Drive upgrade, plus it seems to have been recently repainted
