Unique, Patent-Pending Features Make Rotary Lift Mach Series Mobile Column Lifts Super Productive

MADISON, Ind., Feb. 27, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — While rise and descent times are
important numbers to consider when selecting a vehicle lift, other features that
speed up the setup process can have an equally significant impact on boosting
shop productivity. Mach(TM) series mobile column lifts from Rotary Lift not only
raise vehicles faster than comparable mobile column lifts, but they are also
built to maximize operator efficiency and reduce downtime.


“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 percent. 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.”

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 setting up the lift, the technician simply positions a column,
turns it on and presses the button that corresponds to the column’s position on
the control graphic. LEDs show the power, synchronization and status of each
column. When all LEDs are green, it means the columns are synchronized and ready
for lifting. There is no RFID wand to lose or complicated programming procedure
to memorize.

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 without the need to manually lower the lift. These features are standard
and easy to use, while pallet-jack systems can leak and be costly to repair.
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 uniquely 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. The only part of the
cylinder that is ever exposed is the casing. On other hydraulic mobile column
lifts, the piston rod is exposed at the base of the column as the lift is
raised. Even chrome piston rods are susceptible to corrosion and damage. Shop
debris can stick to the rod and damage the seal, necessitating more frequent

“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 Mach series mobile columns can be purchased in sets of two, four,
six and eight, with either 13,000 lbs. or 18,000 lbs. of capacity per column.
The wide range of combinations ensures a perfect fit for any lifting need. With
a 12,000 lb. capacity truck frame adapter kit, two 13,000 lb. capacity columns
can be used to service popular Class 2 and 3 pickups, while six 18,000 lb.
capacity columns will lift nearly anything on the road. The columns are battery
powered, so they can be used throughout the shop.
