    I think you got the tensioning and drive switched around. If you look at this video I recently made https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=X9iYYT06Mek

    When I load the chair there are cables which are part of the counterweight that go inside where the door is saying “Authorized personal only”.
    Also at the top you can hear the engine running in the background.

      Routine summer maintenance?

      Porky, Beckie, and MB are getting some heavy maintenance this year.

        Yeah I was riding the gondola and the climbout sheaves on porcupine got replaced and the com line is very saggy atm.

    A few years back when I talked to Cole Steadman the lift supervisor there, (Has since moved on) they were quite pleased with how well Becker and Porky had held up over the years. Stadeli’s lifts were heavy duty and quite solid.

    Does anybody know why Stadeli never installed any detachables in the U.S.? Their 80s HSQs seem like they are better than what dopp/poma were offering at the time.
