Rotary Lift unveils four-post alignment lift

Posted on July 3, 2013

Rotary Lift recently introduced its new AR18 four-post alignment lift. Officials said the lift is one of the most versatile products offered by the supplier because it easily adapts to meet the needs of car dealers, truck dealers, independent repair shops and mixed fleets.

The lift features two stainless steel turning radius gauges for use when performing alignments and is compatible with all brands and types of alignment instrumentation, according to Rotary Lift.

The AR18 has a rated capacity of 18,000 lbs., enough to service everything up to and including Class 5 trucks. One runway is adjustable by three inches to allow the lift to be narrowed or widened depending on the vehicle being serviced.

The hydraulic cylinder and lifting mechanism on the AR18 are tucked under one of the lift’s runways, eliminating a potentially vehicle-damaging overhead obstruction. Two 9,000 lb.-capacity rolling jacks are included as standard equipment to enable wheels-free brake, tire, alignment and suspension work.

The AR18 features improved alignment turnplates and slots along the sides of the runways to accommodate an optional work step. Automatic ramp chocks engage when the lift is raised and strips of protective material have been added to the ramp bottoms to reduce noise and lessen the chance of floor damage.

The lift also consists of modular components, making it easily adaptable to meet specific wheelbase needs.

The AR18 has been third-party tested by ETL and approved by the Automotive Lift Institute to meet industry safety and performance standards, according to company officials.
