Modular HD Inground Lift

Rotary’s MOD35

Rotary Lift has introduced the “next generation” of the modular, environmentally friendly, heavy-duty inground lift — the MOD35 Series. It’s claimed to offer best-in-class lifting capacity and clear bay space, patent-pending pendant controls, and lower installation costs.

The MOD35 builds on the company’s MOD30 inground lift, more than 1100 of which have been installed since the product’s introduction in 2002. The new lift includes all the features of the MOD30, plus enhancements, and it’s said to be fast to set up for servicing any heavy-duty vehicle, from work trucks to articulated buses.

The modular design of the MOD35 inground lift enables it to be customized for any application and location. It’s available with two or three multi-stage hydraulic cylinders to provide lifting capacity of 70,000 to 105,000 lb.

The new, patent-pending pendant-only control comes standard with every MOD35 inground lift instead of a floor console. The pendant makes it easy for technicians to operate the lift from anywhere in the bay, for more efficient spotting and lifting. The pendant’s joystick controls provide infinite variable speed control for positioning, raising and lowering the lift, as well as fine adjustment. A lower-to-lock button provides peace of mind. The exclusive pendant has been Class 1 Division 2 certified for use all the way down to the ground without worry. An optional cord reel will also be available.

By moving all of the MOD35’s control and communication functions to the pendant, the standard electrical console is now smaller, to the point that it can be removed from the bay and mounted on a wall up to 100 ft away from the lift. As a result, facilities gain about five square feet of additional floor space, providing technicians with more room to work around the vehicle.

To protect both the environment and the lift, the MOD35 is totally contained in a six-foot-deep steel enclosure that has been sealed inside and out with Rotary Lift’s exclusive EnviroGuard coating. The enclosure is warranted against corrosion and electrolysis for 10 years. This containment forms a barrier between the lift components and the ground to trap oil and shop fluids while at the same time locking out groundwater. The MOD35 containment unit also allows for easy access to all lift components and reduces installation costs.

Rotary Lift has also developed a patent-pending new installation method for the MOD35 that requires up to 25% less concrete. Other features include a new slip-clutch chain-drive design and a new abrasion-resistant hose guide that keeps the hydraulic hose out of the way of the moving piston.
