    wish it went a tad faster… holding that down button is a real pain too… but we realize why. AWESOME PRODUCT !!!

    It would be nice if lift had two speeds. A faster speed when empty and the existing speed when loaded. Only complaint!

  3. 5 out of 5

    Wish is that the lift could have a couple of different speeds to go up or down. Also, would like for the motor to be able to be on the right or left, for access space as we are not using this in an addict.

  4. 2 out of 5

    The installer put it up in two days. It worked for a week and then it makes lots of racket and does not go up and down anymore.

    My builder framed the joist opening, but wouldn’t install. Feared liability. I installed myself. Only comment is that I wish I instructions had been more clear about necessary clearance for motor mechanism. And, an upright configuration would have been better, to allow placement closer to a wall/room edge. Otherwise, it is great. We moved in 4 months after my back surgery, and I could never have moved all my ‘stuff’ up to storage without the lift!

    I love my lift! I wish there was a remote control to work it rather than just the wall control so I can send it up or down while I am down and my husband is up and vice versa without having to comedown the ladder to operate the control….my husband doesn’t want to operate the control….scared he will mess it up!

    Look at safety limit switch. Since there is play in the system it can fail. A problem we had. Otherwise highly recommend.

    Maintains/servicing cables? Is is best to periodically lubricate the cables with WD 40. Also the grease fitting were not greased when the unit was delivered

    Two improvements that would get it to five stars. 1. Send lift with a bottle of aluminum grease for the main gear. Too sqeaky on initial install. A $5 bottle of trease and a page in instructions would eliminate this issue. 2. A different material other than the included springs for the cosmetic skirt would be appropriate. The springs do not do a good job of self centering the skirt. Thus the skirt frame.can get in the way of the load frame. Causing a spring to bend which makes the problem even worse. High quality shock cord corner to corner is a much more reliable solution I have found

  13. Being a .union crane operator from Chicago for 40 years, I wasn’t expecting to much from this attic lift, man was I wrong. I installed the lift myself with no problems at all, well built, the welds were perfect, the drums were grooved so the cables wrapped on them perfect, quiet motor, I can not find anything I would change in the design.I actually called the Aladdin office and complimented them on their attic lift. I know a good piece of lifting equipment, and you boys have designed and produced a nice unit.

    The product is great. I have showed multiple people. I highly recommend the lift to anybody.

    Product works well. It is slow and makes a whining noise when it is lifting. Not quite sure what this is.

  27. 5 out of 5

    The lift is very noisy when it comes down to the point where it is worrysome. But I must say that it is a perfect size and lift’s a great deal of weight at 500 lbs. Just the noise should be looked at. If you have any ideas on how to fix this, I would greatly appreciate a comeback.

    Have had a few self-inflicted issues but, overall, this lift has been a huge labor saver. I have a very large attic and use the lift often.

    Good product. Perfect for older crowd where it’s getting harder to use stairs anymore to store in the attic.

    I’ve had my lift for about 18 months; in that time, I’ve had to replace the fuse which is housed under a sheet metal cover several times. I finally left this sheet metal cover off due to the difficulty of reinstalling it each time. With Aladdin’s’ help and the help of an electrician who was on the phone with Aladdin representatives, I think the fuse issue is resolved. Time will tell. l love the lift when it works properly. My problem may have been more with the installer than with the lift. Again, time will tell.

    My lift makes a squeaking noise when I let it down, but does squeak going up. probably needs WD 40, but not sure what to put it on.

    Yes my lift stopped working after 1 week, and we never even put a load on it. Total bullshit junk has power have had several electricians come and look at it and no one can understand why it won’t work

    Love everything about this lift with two exceptions. 1) my contractor did an amazing job “finishing” the bottom of the lift. Your design almost made me not buy it. Even your promo youtube video shows a saggy 1/4″ plywood. We redesigned and it looks great. Second issue: the metal on metal gears SCREEM at me and I’m my neighbors. I have to have a grease gun ready to apply grease to gears after every couple uses. So, other than those two issues, its great and glad i bought.

    I have not rcvd nor yet installed my unit, but I know I’ll be happy with it. Mike Runyan has done a lot of other work for us & I recommend him routinely.

    My contractor framed the opening during construction. Over about two weeks during the evenings after work I worked on installing the lift not too hard would install another one if I ever have to build a house again. Customer service sent me all the information I needed to give my contractor for framing befor I purchased the lift and that was very helpful.

    I still have not been able to lower or lift the attic lift without standing there the entire time (approx. 3 to 4 minutes) and continually press the lift or lower button.

    Aladdin lift is a unique product. I looked long and hard to find a lift suited for our house with two spiral staircases. You saved my life during an expensive remodeling effort as we moved heavy furniture to the second level. Keep up the good product!

    I love this product however there is a very loud screeching when it lowers that I can‰Ûªt seem to find or fix. Sounds like metal on metal but I can‰Ûªt figure out where. I did have a control board go bad (soldering came apart) but you sent a replacement right away so I can‰Ûªt be happier with your service

    Lift is noisy. The cables and rollers sound as if lift is broken or straining, but there is no binding or reason for noise that I can determine. Cables don’t always roll up evenly and it’s not predictable which will be lower, higher, etc. However, the lift does move stuff as advertised. No issues with getting job done…….just a little clunky.

    There’s a squeaky noise when lowering the lift that I would like to eliminate. Tried greasing with no success. Also wish it would move a little faster.

    I have owned the Aladdin lift system for about a year and it has to be one of the best lifts on the market. I was skeptical using this product since it isn’t as well known to the market as the very commercialized brands but I took the plunge and it was well worth it. The amount of “stuff” you can throw on this lift is amazing.. No more multiple trips to the attic and back down. We can put all of our Christmas gear, tree and all at one time. Great product and will put one in our new house we are building…

    Installation very easy, good instructions. We had to adjust the fly wheel for noise and vibration, but everything works smoothly. We will begin installing this unit in our custom new homes.

    I submitted my measurements on 3 occasions and they still sent a lift for a 2×8 joist. In our area, 2×6 is standard in nearly every home. This should have been an option or better communication.

  72. 4 out of 5

    (verified owner)

    We’re still waiting for our contractor to finish the garage attic and then we can install it. However, looking over the instructions and the engineering of the lift, I see no reason we won’t be extremely satisfied.
