Schindler 330A

The Schindler 321A is a former hydraulic elevator model produced by Schindler that only came in hole-less models and was in production from 1998 to March 2001. This elevator model was the predecessor to the 330A and was used in the United States and Canada.


The Schindler 321A was one of Schindler's holeless hydraulic models, and was in production as the same the 300A was but the 300A model started production in the early 1990s and the Schindler 321A started production in 1998 and ended production at the same year the 300A ended production in 2001. Unlike the Schindler 300A and 330A hole-less models the Schindler 321A had one piston mounted behind the C.O.P panel unlike the 300A and 330A hole-less models witch had two pistons mounted to the sides of the cab without doors. Also,the 321A only came in Hole-less models unlike the 300A and the 330A which came in both hole-less and inground. The Schindler 321A looks very similar to the 330A and can be hard to tell apart. But the specs are very specific compared to the 330A.
