MADISON, Ind. — If youre in the market for a heavy-duty vehicle lift, you may want to check out a free white paper aimed at helping fleets, truck dealers and maintenance facilities select the right type.
Published by Rotary Lift Consolidated, the white paper entitled: Heavy-Duty Vehicle Lifts: A Resource Guide, can be downloaded at www.rotarylift.com/whitePapers.
Using vehicle lifts instead of relying on floor jacks, jack stands, creepers and pits for most truck maintenance and repair tasks offers improvements in productivity, profitability, ROI, ergonomics, workers compensation costs and technician recruitment and retention, says Roger Perlstein, Rotary Lift national sales manager, Commercial Truck and Transit Division. One of the last remaining shop upgrades that can significantly increase technician productivity and efficiency is the addition of vehicle lifts.
However, Perlstein added vehicle lifts are still relatively new to North Americas trucking industry and fleet maintenance managers are often unsure how to choose the right lift for their application.
The white paper is 30 pages in length and features illustrations outlining key considerations when selecting a new heavy-duty lift. The paper showcases advantages and disadvantages of various types of lifts and helps determine which type will deliver the best return on investment in various applications. It also includes guidelines on how to keep vehicle lifts functioning properly.
