While other home elevators on the market may look similar, Vuelift is the only one to use a proven and reliable winding drum drive system. The benefits of Vuelift over pneumatic vacuum drive technology are many and include: safety code compliance; smooth, consistent speed regardless of cab load or environmental factors; higher capacity (up to 950 lb); and quiet operation (only 65 db) – vacuums are noisy… need we say more?
