For the sweeps or tower?

My understanding is the sweeps are run on momentum and hydraulics. There is no air system on a Saturn --

I'm not really qualified to answer this, but it seems to be the S-6 had a big air tank on the 5th wheel... it made that loud sound when it topped out.

Yes, the only Saturn Six I've ever seen was the one on RAS thity years back, and it wasn't stock.
There may be a TM one on Cony now.
I can still remember siting next to Bob (Red Barron) Bouling's Hurricane, almost as noisy as a Tip Top. Both Harawitz rides, though one one sourse also mentioned an AH Saturn Six.💶

The Allen Herschell ride was a ground mounted Hurricane which was later copied & trailer mounted by Mulligan & renamed the Saturn 6...There is a hydrolic ram with a heavy chain at the end that pulls down on the center bar to raise the sweeps up..When Hrubetz got the rights to the name Hurricane one of the improvements they made was to add the air compresser.
My albums are all on Facebook!
