Rotary Lift introduces remote-controlled wireless mobile column lift

Rotary Lift has introduced the new Mach Flex powered by RedFire wireless mobile column lifting system, which is operated by the technician using a remote control. Using the remote control lets the technician move around the vehicle while operating the lift from anywhere in the bay for maximum visibility and flexibility, according to the company.

“Mobile column lifts are incredibly popular in a wide range of shops because they’re so flexible and easy to use to service virtually any vehicle,” says Doug Spiller, Rotary Lift’s heavy-duty product manager. “Rotary Lift already set the standard in the category with our Mach Series of mobile column lifts that are faster and easier to use than any others. Now, based on extensive customer input, we’ve improved just about everything a mobile lift has to offer. Mach Flex powered by RedFire lift systems are faster to set up, can lift more, and include as standard a number of safety and productivity-enhancing features that are either optional or not available on other lifts.”

According to Rotary Lift, with Mach Flex, technicians are no longer tied down to operating the lift while standing at a single column. In some shops, especially those servicing buses or other long vehicles, two technicians often work together to operate mobile column lifts—one to run the lift and the other to walk around and check that everything is going smoothly. Thanks to Mach Flex’s industrial-grade remote control, a single technician can operate the lift while walking around the vehicle and the bay, keeping an eye out for any obstructions or other issues, the company said.

The MCH19 Flex offers a lifting capacity of 18,800 lbs. per column, enabling a set of eight columns to pick up vehicles weighing up to 150,400 lbs. Mach Flex lifting systems are available in configurations of two, four, six or eight columns.

Mach Flex also has Rotary Lift’s LockLight technology built in. LockLight shows technicians, shop managers and anyone else in the shop at a glance whether the lift is resting on its mechanical load-holding locks, the company explained. If a vehicle is in the air and the Mach Flex lift’s locks are engaged, the built-in green light on top of the columns will illuminate, indicating that it is OK to get to work on the vehicle.
