Rotary Lift improves productivity of Mach lifts

Posted on March 13, 2014

Rotary Lift has announced patent-pending features on its Mach series mobile column lifts that improve technician productivity by more than 30%.

“When designing the Mach series of mobile column lifts, we studied every step of a typical technician’s setup process and found ways to save valuable time,” says Doug Spiller, heavy-duty product manager for Rotary Lift.

“The features that make the lifts so easy to use, when combined with their fast rise times, can improve technician productivity by more than 30%. That means shops using Mach mobile column lifts will be able to complete more jobs in a day than they would if they used other lifts.”

The company says each column in a Mach series mobile column lift is equipped with identical patent-pending controls, so the technician can operate the entire lift from the column that is most convenient. The easy-to-understand control panel features an intuitive graphic layout of the column setup with a vehicle illustrated for reference.

When moving a Mach series lift, the technician does not need to pump up the columns as required with pallet-jack steering systems. Springs located at each wheel lift the column when the vehicle reaches the ground, allowing the lift to be moved. When loaded, automatic brakes keep the column from moving on sloped floors.

These features are standard and easy to use, while pallet-jack systems can leak and be costly to repair, according to the company. Since most lifting jobs require four to six columns, the automatic spring-loaded steering system saves considerable time and effort during setup.

The hydraulic cylinder in each Mach series mobile column is positioned to prevent it from being damaged. The cylinder is inverted, so the chrome piston rod remains protected from debris and damage at all times.

“Mach series mobile column lifts are easy to move, synchronize and maintain,” says Spiller. “Since there is very little installation, they can be seamlessly added to any shop and put into immediate use. Technicians will be happier and more productive.”

Rotary Lift is part of Dover Corp., a multi-billion dollar, global producer of equipment, specialty systems and value-added services.
