The Otis HydroFit is Otis's machine room less and machine room hydraulic elevator. It is not the first MRL hydraulic elevator, but it was the first MRL hydraulic elevator that became somewhat popular for new buildings. The HydroFit was introduced in July-August 2011.


The Otis HydroFit is a machine room less hydraulic elevator, for some reason it can be a machine room model as an option. Since the middle of 2012, this is Otis's only hydraulic elevator model.

However, machine room is required in few places (California, Massachusetts, New York City and Washington).
