MADISON, Ind. (Nov. 9, 2010) — Dover Corp.´s Rotary Lift business is making its Y-Lift available as a general service model (Y12) to auto service shops.
The Y-Lift is a drive-on lift that uses a patented design and unique Y-shaped legs to provide faster rise/descent speeds and better vehicle access than traditional scissor or four-post lifts, according to Rotary Lift.
Rotary Lift, a brand of Dover´s Vehicle Service Group, introduced the Y-Lift alignment lift (model YA12) in February. The new Y12 flat top model offers all the productivity benefits of the alignment version for other service and repair applications, according to the company, including quick-service operations, undercarriage and exhaust work and jobs requiring loaded suspensions.
The Y-Lift's namesake legs eliminate the need for the restrictive scissor arms and corner posts common to other styles of lifts, so technicians have 20 percent more work space, Rotary Lift said.
The Y-Lift also is available in a drive-through configuration to further speed vehicle positioning, especially in quick-service operations. Capacity is 12,000 lbs.
