Rotary Lift has expanded its remote-controlled lift product line to make it more versatile. Rotary Flex Max, powered by RedFire, is a new wireless mobile column lift that can be operated by remote control or via controls located on every column.
“Our new Flex Max mobile column lift raises the bar on performance by giving technicians the choices they want to work in the most personally comfortable, productive and efficient way possible,” said Doug Spiller, Rotary Lift heavy-duty product manager.
Rotary Flex Max is available in configurations of two, four, six or eight columns. It also offers lifting capacities of 14,000 or 18,800 pounds per column. It can be used to lift most cars, trucks, buses, RVs and other vehicles.
The Flex remote control system, according to the company, reduces setup time by guiding the technician through the process and eliminating the need to stay at each column to sync it before moving to the next. Flex and Flex Max are battery-operated vehicle lifts with an onboard charger, eliminating the clutter of cords in the bay. Software updates can be completed without cords, keys, chips or even opening the lift panel.
Flex Max is equipped with Rotary Lift’s patent-pending LockLight technology that shows technicians and shop managers at a glance whether the lift is resting on its mechanical load-holding locks. If a vehicle is in the air and the Flex Max lift’s locks are engaged, the built-in green light on top of the columns will illuminate, indicating that it is OK to work on the vehicle.
“While many prefer the remote control for speed and the additional visibility around the vehicle it provides, others like the familiarity of running the lift from any of the columns,” said Spiller.
