The company also provides a SMARTLift-Future Kit that allows dealers to first install the polymer composite housing unit and then add internal working components at a later date.

Myers Tire Supply Co. is distributing a new 1-inch-drive, heavy-duty impact wrench, the IR285-6, from Ingersoll-Rand Co.'s Tool and Hoist Division.
The IR285-6 has more power-1,450 foot-pounds maximum torque with a 5,000 rpm free speed-and is easier to handle than the model IR281 which it is replacing, Myers said.
The unit also features a 360-degree swivel inlet, a swept-back side handle and a high-efficiency, six-vane air motor.
Myers said the IR286-6 has a 6-inch extended anvil. Two other versions also are available: the IR285, with a standard anvil; and the IR285-S6, with a No. 5 spline extended anvil.
