             Geared Traction Elevators have a gearbox that is attached to the motor, which drives the wheel that moves the ropes. This is useful to use low KW motor and reduce cost. Geared traction elevators are capable of travel speeds up to 500 feet per minute. geared machines are less efficient compared to the gear-less one.
