Residential Hydraulic Elevator - Direct Hydraulic - X3R
Our TIGER LIFT® residential hydraulic elevators are an affordable and practical vertical transportation solution, requiring a space not much larger than a closet. Our hydraulic elevators provide superior ride quality, extremely quiet operation and the durability of commercial grade components. These heavy duty elevators can carry much more weight than typical residential elevators, allowing for elaborate cab finishes, commercial style doors, and other options not available with other units.
We offer both direct (model X3R) and roped (model X5R) hydraulic elevators. The direct model is slightly less expensive, but is limited in the amount of travel distance before a hole in the ground for the hydraulic cylinder is required. The roped model eliminates the need for a hole by using a pulley and hoist ropes, along with a broken rope safety. The vast majority of residential hydraulic elevators are roped (X5R), as the slight increase in cost typically is far less than the expense of providing the hole. Both require the same size hoistway and machine room and have similar ride characteristics.
TIGER LIFT® winding drum residential elevators are an affordable and practical vertical transportation solution, requiring a space not much larger than a closet. Our winding drum elevators provide superior ride quality, extremely quiet operation and the durability of commercial grade components. Our winding drum elevators are not like some light duty units with a monorail design. Ours can carry much more weight, allowing for elaborate cab finishes and other options not available with other units.
We offer several different machine mounting locations, some of which do not require a separate machine space. There are 2 machine sizes, one for 500# capacity for up to 12 square foot cars, and 950# for up to 15 square foot cars. Our variable voltage variable frequency drive provides for smooth stops and starts, and eliminates the voltage sag that occurs when starting a motor – no dimming lights when the elevator starts. With a wide range of available options, you can customize your elevator to meet your
