Long Beach Transit adds Rotary Lifts

Posted on April 29, 2013

Calif.-based Long Beach Transit (LBT) awarded a contract to Peterson Hydraulics Inc. for 12 Rotary Lift MOD30 environmentally friendly in-ground lifts.

The MOD30s will replace existing lifts at LBT’s Anaheim Street Facility. The order includes 11 60,000-lb. capacity two-piston models and one three-piston version rated at 90,000 lbs. Peterson Hydraulics will also lay an epoxy-coated floor with the new lifts.

The Rotary Lift MOD30 uses half the hydraulic fluid required by traditional in-ground lifts. The entire system is contained in a six-foot deep steel enclosure that is coated inside and out with Rotary Lift’s exclusive EnviroGuard sealant to protect against electrolysis and contamination.

To enhance productivity, the MOD30 features an automatically positioning moveable piston and automatic trench covers. Rotary Lift’s patented universal saddle adapter further reduces setup time, and the lift’s upright console eliminates the need to bend down to operate the controls.

LBT facility and maintenance department staff considered many options before selecting the MOD30. Work is scheduled to begin shortly and run through February 2014. Peterson Hydraulics will train LBT technicians on proper use and maintenance of the lifts after the first phase of installation is complete.
