What Is A Traction Lift?

Traction elevators use a rope-and-pulley system to operate, with a steel rope attached to a counterweight which, when threaded through sheaves operated by an electric motor, raise and lower the elevator. They have lower power consumption than hydraulic lifts, but can be more expensive and require more head or pit room.
