What do you mean? This is the standard configuration for entertainment motors (as opposed to commercial use). It allows the chain only to be hoisted into the air and connected. Standard is for the motor to be in a case, chain fully extended, thus allowing the chain to be pulled out and connected overhead to the pick. The motor is then used to lift itself out of the case and hang in place waiting for it's load.
I'd hate to have to lift each motor to hang it.
yes I know the standard entertainment use...I'm referring to the two clearly inverted motors (chain down) to the right of FOH....there also appear to be a few in the background as well, hence my question.
mac: ahh, scenic...makes sense, those guys always want to do stuff backwards!
