Versatile lift works with wide range of vehicles, including electric vehicles, exotics, subcompacts and trucks
Downers Grove, Ill.—Rotary, part of Vehicle Service Group (VSG) and Dover, has announced the launch of the Rotary Wide Smartlift, offerin dealerships and repair shops a versatile lift that works with both current and next-generation vehicles. Rotary’s new Wide Smartlift is one and a half times wider and two times faster than a standard in-ground lift, enabling greater access and speed for technicians when servicing vehicles.
The Wide Smartlift’s redesigned superstructure increases unobstructed under-vehicle space for easy service of air dams, batteries and more. In addition, its patented TRIO three-stage arms offer improved reach for faster, easier spotting of exotic and low-profile cars.
With an available interchangeable adapter kit, the lift is able to service cars, trucks and electric vehicles on the same arm. The lift features a Shockwave-powered cycle times, which works twice as fast as a standard lift, allowing shops to complete more jobs in the same amount of time, the company stated. Available in 10,000 or 12,000 lb. capacities, the lift can service vehicles ranging from subcompact cars to trucks.
“Due to the increasing number of electric vehicles, the automotive industry is changing at a rapid pace. We expect this level of activity to only continue in the next five years, and even more so than in prior generations,” said John Uhl, director of Product Management at Rotary. “In an effort to prepare for the future of repairs, the dealerships and repair shops we work with require a lift that will allow them to modernize their shops and quickly service any vehicle that comes through their doors — and we are pleased to be able to provide them with just that.”
Rotary’s Wide Smartlift in-ground lifts are designed, tested and manufactured in Madison, Ind.
