Rotary Lift updates light-duty four-post lifts

Rotary Lift has updated its SM series of 14,000-lb. capacity four-post lifts to provide greater productivity and durability through a higher rise height, improved drive-on ramps and a new powder-coated hammer-tone paint finish. The features make the SM series four-post lifts more capable for facilities that service a variety of vehicles, including cars, light trucks and vans.

“We took the needs of shop managers and technicians into account when we redesigned the SM series four-post lift,” says David Fischmer, marketing manager for Rotary Lift parent company Vehicle Service Group (VSG). “The enhancements address technician comfort and ease-of-use, plus long-term maintenance and lift lifespan.”

The Rotary Lift SM series four-post lifts now come standard with 78.75 in. of rise height, which is 5 in. higher than previous models. The resulting extra under-runway clearance makes it easier for technicians to walk under the lift to access drivetrain, exhaust and other under-vehicle components, said the manufacturer.

For improved traction, Rotary Lift added louvers to the lifts’ drive-on ramps. The bottom of each ramp has also been fitted with polymer rollers instead of protective strips. The ramps, runways and posts are finished with a powder-coated hammer-tone paint finish.

As part of the redesign, Rotary Lift introduced a Shockwave option that cuts the SM series four-post lift’s rise time in half to 35 seconds, said the company. Descent takes 18 seconds.

The patent-pending Shockwave system is made possible in part by a DC power unit. The batteries are kept charged by an onboard charger, so the lifts will work even if the shop’s electricity goes out. Since the charger runs on a standard 110V power connection, there is no need to install expensive 220V wiring for the lift, said Rotary Lift. On the SM series four-post lift, the Shockwave power unit can be mounted to either the front or side of one of the columns to meet the space needs of any work bay.
