Truck Maintenance: Mobile Column Lifts Dramatically Speed Up Truck Maintenance and Repairs

Truck maintenance: Rotary Lift will demonstrate how truck maintenance is evolving to be more ergonomic and productive at the TMC Transportation Technology Exhibition in February and NTEA Work Truck Show in March. Rotary Lift representatives at both shows will highlight the labor-saving benefits of Rotary Lift Mach™ Series mobile column lifts and share the productivity advantages these lifts are providing to fleets.

Rotary Lift will display its wireless Mach Series mobile column lifts in booth #2932 at the TMC Annual Meeting & Transportation Technology Exhibition, Feb. 29 – Mar. 3 at Music City Center in Nashville, Tenn., and in booth #521 at The Work Truck Show 2016, March 1-4 at the Indiana Convention Center in Indianapolis, Ind.

Both Rotary Lift booths will feature Mach Series wireless 18,000 lb. capacity mobile column lifts. Rotary Lift wireless Mach Series lifts feature the fastest rise and descent and setup times, positioning the vehicle faster so technicians can get to work quicker. This speedy benefit will be demonstrated at the Work Truck Show by lifting a hybrid Ford truck, specially modified by XL Hybrids™ Inc. Adding to the operational speed are patented, intuitive controls located on each column, so the technician can operate the lift from whichever corner of the vehicle is most convenient.

Mach Series mobile column lifts are battery-operated and available with capacities of 13,000 lbs. or 18,000 lbs. per column, and are available in wireless or wired configurations. They can be ordered in sets of two, four, six or eight columns, so customers can match the right amount of capacity for the vehicles they service.

The Rotary Lift MW-500 mobile wheel lift and a heavy-duty jack stand will also be on display at both Shows. The mobile wheel lift can position any size wheel or tire weighing up to 500 pounds, making it much easier and more ergonomic for technicians to perform wheel and brake maintenance and repairs on heavy-duty vehicles. Rotary Lift jack stands make a set of mobile column lifts even more versatile—once the vehicle is raised in the air, it can be lowered onto the jack stands and the mobile column lifts removed for use elsewhere in the shop.
