The RCH4 is sold in sets of four, six or eight battery-operated columns. Each column is identical and has a rated capacity of 18,000 pounds for a total lifting capacity of up to 144,000 pounds. The system can lift a vehicle 70 inches in 78 seconds. The RCH4 also features Rotary Lift's automatic steering system, and fixed forks fit most large tires.
Every column is equipped with Rotary Lift's patented control panel. These controls include a graphic layout of the column set-up, real-time height reading and error display, battery indicator, programmable height limit settings and one-touch controls. Lifting and lowering of all columns is automatically synchronized, and there is a slow-lowering function for vehicle positioning. Technicians can operate the lift from whichever column is most convenient.
The RCH4 has three 33-foot-long cables connected in a horseshoe shape to connect columns. This leaves one end of the lift is open to more quickly position vehicles on the lift.
The system is battery operated with an internal charger, and its hydraulic cylinder is inverted so the chrome piston rod is protected from debris and damage.
Optional accessories available for the RCH4 are: LED lighting system, steel reducer sleeves, wheel riser kit and weight gauge.
The RCH4 mobile column lifting system has been third-party tested by ETL and ALI certified.
"Mobile column lifts are a popular choice for commercial trucking fleets, transit agencies, government fleets and vocational customers because they are versatile enough to be used almost anywhere to service virtually any medium or heavy-duty vehicle," says Doug Spiller, Rotary Lift heavy duty product manager.
