The time-saving, productivity-enhancing features of Rotary Lift's heavy-duty Mach family of mobile column lifts are now available in a smaller package suited for fleets, independent repair facilities, school bus garages and truck dealerships.

Like the rest of the Mach family, the new MCH413 mobile column lift reduces setup time by more than 30%, so technicians get to work faster, according to the company.

Rotary Lift's other Mach mobile column lifts have a rated capacity of 18,000 lbs. per column. The MCH413 is smaller -- about a foot shorter and 150 pounds lighter -- and has a rated capacity of 13,000 pounds per column. As a result, it also has a lower price.

"There are a lot of people who like the versatility of mobile column lifts, but don't need to pick up 72,000 pounds," says Doug Spiller, Rotary Lift heavy-duty product manager. "You shouldn't have to pay for capacity you don't need. In its four-column setup, with a 52,000-pound capacity, the MCH413 can lift just about every vehicle from Class 8 on down."

The MCH413 is battery operated and uses just three communication cables instead of the four that other brands require. These cables are arranged in a horseshoe, keeping one end of the lift open for easy vehicle positioning. The lift can be operated from any column through Rotary Lift's patented control system. The MCH413 minimizes downtime by raising a vehicle 69 inches in just 68 seconds.
