Rotary Lift Introduces Certified Wash Bay Parallelogram Lift
December 2011, TruckingInfo.com - Feature
Rotary Lift has updated its parallelogram wash bay lift package to maximize bay space and product life. The new lift with wash bay kit is third-party tested by ETL and ALI certified to meet ANSI safety and performance standards.
Rotary Lift's new certified wash bay parallelogram lift features an ALI-certified stainless steel control panel that can be wall-mounted, freeing up bay workspace and further protecting the power unit.
Rotary Lift manufactures a full line of parallelogram lifts with lifting capacities up to 100,000 lbs. and platform lengths from 26 to 48 feet long. Any of these models can be ordered with the new wash bay package.
"Parallelogram lifts are the most popular choice for truck and transit wash bays. The mechanics of the parallelogram design are ideal for positioning engine compartments beyond the ends of the lift runways to create total access for cleaning the engine and other service areas over the water reclamation pit. Parallelograms are also less sensitive than scissor lifts to the unequal loading created by this arrangement," explains Doug Spiller, Rotary Lift heavy-duty product manager. "Our updated parallelogram lifts are also particularly well-suited to the harsh environment of the wash bay. New marine-grade paint and stainless steel feet resist corrosion caused by constant exposure to water, grime and chemicals."
Rotary Lift's wash bay lift also includes an ALI-certified stainless steel control panel that can be wall-mounted. As a result, the lift's PLC power unit can now be located outside of the bay, up to 65 feet away from the lift itself. This frees up workspace in the bay, and further protects the power unit.
Rotary Lift parallelogram lifts feature a clear floor design that provides complete vehicle access from both sides, as well as from the front and rear, with no obstructions between the legs. Automatic wheel chocks engage when the lift is raised and release when it is lowered. The lifts are available in surface, flush mount and full recess applications.
