Rotary Lift says it takes only 60 seconds to raise a truck in the air with its parallelogram lift, and now the company has upgraded the finishes used on its lifts. That’s largely because many fleets use parallelogram lifts in wash bays as well as the shop. The new finishes are more resistant to the chemicals used in the cleaners, as well as the road de-icers that are rinse off of vehicles in colder climates. Rotary’s parallelogram lifts now feature a galvanized base coat to prevent rust from shortening their service life, the same coating used on highway guardrails.

Rotary has also patented a clear floor design that provides access under the truck from both ends as well as the sides of the lift. This enables technicians to easily wheel toolboxes and equipment under the vehicle from either side, rather than having to walk all the way to the end of the vehicle and back.

The parallelogram lifts include standard mechanical locks, wheel chocks and a full-length safety strip. The PLC power unit can be programmed with multiple height presets to quickly raise different sizes of vehicles to the proper height. The PLC power unit also monitors all functions 40 times per second and alerts users to any issues.

Optional rolling jacks can be added to allow the front, rear or all wheels to be lifted off the runways for brake, tire, alignment and suspension work. Other optional productivity features include built-in lights and quick disconnects for compressed air at the front and rear of the lift, as well as a drive-thru ramp kit.

Rotary offers three installation configurations for its parallelogram lifts: flush mount, surface mount, and recessed surface mount. Lift capacity ranges from 25,000 to 130,000 lb.
