With the introduction of the EFX60 scissor lift, Rotary Lift now offers a full line of inground lifts. The traditional heavy-duty inground lift is the most affordable because it is the most basic model. Its pistons are housed in a nine-foot-deep continuous concrete vault. It features push button controls mounted on the floor or wall, a wheel spotting dish for axle positioning and a front jack with hydraulic adjustment.
The Mach 4 Plus runway system is used with a set of four Rotary Lift Mach 4 mobile column lifts. Once the system is connected to the columns, vehicles weighing up to 60,000 pounds can be driven onto the runways and raised to a comfortable working height. Up to two optional 25,000-pound capacity rolling bridges can be added to lift the vehicle’s wheels off the runways, enabling technicians to perform brake, tire and suspension service. The Mach 4 Plus can lift vehicles with wheelbases up to 33 feet, including heavy-duty trucks and buses.
The Mach 4 mobile column lift is sold in sets of four or six battery-operated columns. Each column has a rated capacity of 18,000 pounds and can raise a vehicle 69 inches in 78 seconds. Each Mach 4 column is powered by two deep-cycle marine batteries and is equipped with an onboard waterproof charger, so it can be used anywhere in the shop – including wash bays – as well as outside. A horseshoe wiring schematic assures the front or back of the lift is always open.
Rotary Lift has introduced a new line of 14,000-pound capacity four-post general service and alignment lifts which enable technicians to work on most light-duty vehicles. The new models replace the company’s 12,000-pound four-post lifts. In addition to a higher-rated lifting capacity, Rotary’s new four-post lifts offer longer runways so they can accommodate vehicles with wheelbases up to 212 1/2 inches. These one-piece runways with a non-skid surface are formed with hefty, 5/16-inch thick steel. A wider yoke gives technicians more working area between runways.
Lifts provide comfortable access to every serviceable part of any vehicle, enabling technicians to get more work done in less time, for maximum productivity and profitability. Proper maintenance practices will ensure a long lifetime of service. “There’s more riding on your vehicle lifts than trucks and construction equipment,” says Ron Lainhart, Rotary Lift parts and service manager. “Vehicle lifts support your business. Productivity studies conducted by fleets and truck maintenance providers have found that a single vehicle lift can add $100,000 or more to the bottom line in terms of annual profits or reduction in labour overhead. If a lift is down for repair, productivity in that bay can be cut in half.” To keep your vehicle lifts operating properly, good maintenance and inspection practices are crucial.
