MADISON, Ind. (June 5, 2007) — Rotary Lift is upgrading the lift capacity of its line of four-post general service and alignment lifts to 14,000 pounds to accommodate the steadily expanding market for heavier and larger light trucks and sport-utility vehicles.
In addition to raising the lifting capacity from 12,000 pounds, Rotary lengthened the runways to accommodate vehicles with wheelbases up to 212.5 inches and widened the yoke area to give technicians more working area between the runways.
“Our new four-post lift line is more robust, yet flexible to enable technicians to work more efficiently,” John Rylee, director of marketing, said. “This is especially true when performing alignments on a wider range of vehicles.”
In addition, Rotary has designed its AR14 and ARO14 alignment models to be compatible with all current alignment instrumentation systems, Mr. Rylee said, improving technicians' ability to handle the new vehicle alignment demands driven by modern vehicle design, weight increases and longer wheelbases.
The new four-post lifts have been third-party tested by ETL Testing Laboratories Inc. and certified by Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) to meet or exceed ANSI/ALI ALCTV-1998 performance and safety standards, Rotary said, and are available in three runway lengths and in blue, red, yellow, gray and black.
Madison-based Rotary, a subsidiary of Dover Corp., did not disclose the price of the upgraded lift, saying prices are set by its individual distributors.
