Traction Elevators are the most common type of elevators in use today.

These elevators use a system of pulleys, counterweights, and steel ropes to raise and lower the elevator cab. Traction elevators typically have a fast rate of speed, and because of the counterweight, the motor doesn’t have to expend as much power. This makes traction elevators an ideal, energy-efficient solution for taller buildings, high rises, and skyscrapers.

Hydraulic elevators are an alternative to traction elevators, and operate via hydraulic jack. These systems use fluid compression inside of a cylinder to generate movement, as opposed to standard hoistway machines.

Hydraulic elevators are ideal for shorter buildings (two to seven stories) because of the power they require and the slower speeds they travel at.
