So, apparently Borvig made a detachable chairlift (Spirit Mountain, Minnesota) with Leitner grips and sheaves. I'm wondering if this was a one of a kind lift, or did Borvig attempt at making any detachables anywhere else?

Borvig purchased sheave assemblies, grips, carriers, terminal mechanisms (acceleration, deceleration and turn arounds) and electronics associated with chair spacing and anti-collision directly from Leitner. Borvig engineered and built the terminal masts, towers and cross arms, and the drive terminal and associated equipment.
