Rotary Lift introduces a retrofit performance package
that enables current SmartLift inground lift owners to step up to the added
productivity provided by the company’s new Shockwave system.
According to Rotary Lift, the Shockwave performance package turns SmartLift, the
world’s most popular inground lift, into the world’s fastest lift, with rise
and descent times that are twice as fast a standard lift’s: just 25 seconds up
and 19 seconds down. Productivity is further enhanced by the patent-pending Spotline
laser spotting guide which enables technicians to more quickly and accurately
position a vehicle for service.
Rotary Lift introduced Shockwave-equipped SmartLift
inground lifts and two-post surface lifts in November 2011. The new Shockwave
performance package makes it possible upgrade any previously installed
SmartLift SL210 inground lift.
“With more than 50,000 SmartLift inground lifts sold
worldwide, there is a huge installed base of customers who may want to further
improve their bay productivity and profitability without replacing existing
lifts,” explains John Rylee, Rotary Lift director of marketing. “The new Shockwave
performance package provides these customers with a cost-effective way to speed
up service and increase profits. It’s like adding a supercharger to your lift!”
The package includes everything necessary to upgrade a
SmartLift SL210 inground lift, including new hydraulic cylinders, DC power unit
and controls, and Spotline laser. Rotary Lift recommends that a Rotary
Authorized Installer (RAI) performs the upgrades.
Shockwave-equipped SmartLift inground lifts are
battery-operated, with a built-in charger that runs on 110V current. In
addition to powering the fast cycle times, this patent-pending system also may
lower daily operating costs by reducing the amount of electricity used. In this
way, Shockwave makes SmartLift, the original environmentally friendly inground
lift, even greener. SmartLift’s environmental credentials include a
self-contained polymer composite housing to protect against leaks and
electrolysis, bio-fluid compatibility, and a small footprint that makes it
possible to install 12 SmartLift inground lifts in the same amount of space as
11 two-post surface lifts.
The Spotline laser guide automatically shoots a green
laser line into the center of the service bay when a vehicle approaches. The
technician then quickly centers the line on the vehicle’s hood and dash while
pulling onto the lift, for faster, more accurate vehicle spotting.
According to Rotary Lift, even servicing the lift itself is faster with
SmartLift. All SmartLift maintenance can be performed at ground level without
removing the lift. Rotary Lift’s patented EasyAccess cylinder does not require
bleeding and can be serviced in just two hours that’s 75 percent less time
than required for competitive cylinders, providing a significant savings in
SmartLift inground lifts accelerated by Shockwave have
been third-party tested by ETL and ALI certified to meet ANSI safety and
performance standards. They are made in the U.S.A.
