ST. LOUIS — Hunter Engineering Co. is debuting longer variations of its popular RX14 and RX16 scissor alignment racks that can accommodate a wider range of medium-duty vehicles, including larger vans ad crew-cab pickups.
The new models will be on public display in the Hunter booth at the upcoming SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Oct. 31- Nov. 3.
The RX14KL lift gains an additional 13 inches, while the RX16KL picks up an additional 17 inches. The lifts can accommodate vehicles with wheelbases of up to 195 inches.
Hunter is responding to a growing need for greater length, Hunter HD Product Manager Pete Liebetreu said.
"The longer wheelbase adds more medium-duty vehicle capability, along with more runway to perform rolling compensation on crew-cab pickups and larger vans," Liebetreu said. "It also adds more last-mile delivery vehicle capability, which is a rapidly growing service segment."
New adjustable turnplate pockets offer an 88- to 168-inch four-wheel alignment service range. When aligning a shorter vehicle, the turnplates can be quickly moved back in the pocket.
Additionally, a flush-mount arrangement simplifies floor-level rolling compensation and ADAS calibrations, Hunter said.
Hunter scissor lifts are designed to offer maximum productivity in a minimum space. The surface-mount RX14 and flush-mount RX16 series provide 14,000 and 16,000 lbs. respective capacity and both include two 9,000-lb. capacity jacks.
All models offer low drive-on height and are also PowerSlide and InflationStation capable, Hunter said.
