Three-stage arms are better than two, according to Rotary Lift, which has announced the availability of three-stage lift arms on several of its symmetrical two-post vehicle lift models, including the SPO10, with a rated lifting capacity of 10,000 lb. and SPO12, which can lift up to 12,000 lb.
Three-stage arms, the company explained, make it possible when lifting vehicles to access more manufacturer-recommended pick-up points than traditional two-stage arms.
Rotary first introduced three-stage arms on its SmartLift inground lift and SPOA10 asymmetrical two-post surface lift in 2005 in response to evolutions in vehicle design, including models that were wider and/or lower to the ground, as well as those with shorter or longer wheelbases.
Now, according to Ron Lainhart, parts and service manager, SPO10 and SPO12 symmetrical two-post lifts used primarily for vans, ambulances, and other light trucks and commercial vehicles can provide the same versatility and flexibility when spec’d with the three-stage arm option. Three-stage arms can be ordered on new SPO10 and SPO12 models and are also available for retrofit to existing lifts.
