Traditional design utilizing a hydraulic jack, which is located directly under the platform and installed in the ground.

Advantages:

  • Generally the least expensive and easiest to install.
  • Offered in both low and high capacity elevators.
  • Accommodates front and rear opening configurations.
  • Minimal pit and overhead requirements.

Disadvantages:

  • The jack must be buried into the ground roughly the same distance as the overall travel. Drilling a hole can be expensive and difficult depending on ground water and bedrock.
  • Possible ground contamination from oil leak (sealed PVC recommended to prevent contamination).
