Anyone have any experience with in-ground telescopic cylinders? How is their performance? Hopefully getting ride of a pair of schindler inverted jacks, but the elevator is right on the river, I'd much rather dig down 12' then 35' with such a high water table. But don't want to recommend to the office/customer a idea thats a great concept but not practical. I suppose they have had a crappy ride all this time from the current set up can't be much worse.

I mean repacking the internals on twin post telescopic is fun enough off the cartop with a 30 foot fall. No way I'd wanna do that hanging the car at the top off the I beam then either rigging off the bottom of the car or putting rail blocks with another beam in-between them.

We have a couple of them we put in from EECO. 4500lb cars with 30' travel. No issues yet, they are about 8 years old.
