Tuesday 1st October 1996

This paper will review the evolution of the counterweight from the very early days, when man wanted to make his work easier. There have been many designs of counterweights used and adapted to cater for changes in technology. The counterweight tends to be the forgotten component in the total lift package. It is hoped that this presentation may inform and record this evolution for future generations.
