Rotary Lift has unveiled a new wireless mobile column lift, eliminating cords but not the power. Each Wireless Mach 4 column is powered by batteries and communicates with the other columns wirelessly.
“The lift is a tool that technicians use to get the vehicle into position to do their real job: truck maintenance and repair,” said Doug Spiller, Rotary Lift heavy duty product manager. “Making the lift as fast and easy to use as possible lets technicians get to work more quickly, which improves overall shop productivity and drastically reduces vehicle downtime. Our time and motion studies have shown that Wireless Mach 4 provides a productivity improvement of greater than 30% over similar lifts, saving an organization more than $7,600 in labor costs annually.”
According to Rotary Lift, the Wireless Mach 4 is faster and easier than other mobile column lifts to set up, operate, troubleshoot, retrofit, and update. The lift can be operated from a control panel located on each of the columns.
The panel features an intuitive graphic layout of the column set-up, on-board diagnostics, easy-to-read LEDs and one-touch controls.
The Wireless Mach 4 is available in sets of four or six columns. Each column has a rated lifting capacity of 18,000 lbs. and is powered by two deep-cycle marine batteries. Lifting and lowering of all columns is automatically synchronized. Backup communication cables are included. The system can also be retrofitted to existing Mach 4 mobile column lifts.
Wireless Mach 4 has locking mechanisms every three inches and a lower-to-lock function. Optional extended forks are available for supporting inboard tires on dual-wheeled axles.
