How do we achieve accelerated lifting?

We have increased the motor and pump size which provides a faster rise and descent. These components increase the rise of speed from 48 seconds to 27 seconds equating to a 42% time savings.

Lowering speed is held to a constant 17 seconds (approximately) regardless of the weight of the vehicle.
