The thyssenkrupp endura is thyssenkrupp's hydraulic elevator. It is a successor of the previous ThyssenKrupp Oildraulic elevator which had been produced since 1937 (Rotary-era). It uses either CITGO NZ biodegradable hydraulic fluid, or enviromax, a high-performance vegetable-based hydraulic fluid. thyssenkrupp makes the Twinpost Above-Ground 1-stage, Twinpost Above-Ground 2-stage, Twinpost Above-Ground 3-stage, and endura Below-Ground. The endura was introduced in October 2012.


The thyssenkrupp endura is a hydraulic elevator. The endura can be hard to tell apart from previous Oildraulic models. There are 2 ways you can try to figure it out.

  1. It has to have the "grocery store beep" floor passing chime.
  2. If it was installed in October 2012, it may or may not be an endura. If it was installed in November 2012 or later, it is an endura. The model of an endura is endura Twinpost Above-Ground #-stage/Below-Ground capacity number.

Example: "endura Twinpost Above-Ground 2-stage 3000". There is also the 5000H, which has some different measurements.
