    Isn’t this lift a Hall. Doesn’t say anything in the spreadsheet.

    Yes, although the towers look like something else. Will update.

      This lift is was installed used. Perhaps the crossarms, which don’t look like a typical Hall design, were modified during installation at Mt. Abram.

      I think I found out where this lift came from. It may have been the second Lower Chairlift at Pico, VT, which replaced the original 1962 Stadeli-built Lower Chairlift in 1975 and ran until it was decommissioned in 1988, lining it up perfectly with this lift, which was installed at Abram in 1988.

      The crossarm style, which I haven’t seen on any other Hall lift, is exactly the same, as are the hanger-to-bail connections, tension mast, and the direction of rotation. The Lower Chair would have also been just large enough for a Model 2002 drive/tension terminal, which is what this lift has.
