Rotary Lift has introduced its AR18 four-post alignment lift, designed with two stainless steel turning radius gauges for use when performing alignments and is compatible with all brands and types of alignment instrumentation.
The AR18 has a rated capacity of 18,000 lbs., enough to service everything up to and including Class 5 trucks. One runway is adjustable by three inches to allow the lift to be narrowed or widened depending on the vehicle being serviced.
“The AR18’s ability to do it all means you won’t have to turn away customers or send out alignment work anymore,” says Doug Spiller, heavy-duty product manager for Rotary Lift. “The lift boasts a wide range of features, giving users the flexibility to use a single shop bay for multiple purposes. It can be utilized for repairs on everything from sedans and pickups to ambulances and day cabs. If you want to add four-wheel alignments to your service offerings, it can be set up to accommodate wheelbases as short as 63 in. and as long as 162 in. The extended-length model increases the max wheelbase capability up to 198 in.”
The hydraulic cylinder and lifting mechanism on the AR18 are tucked under one of the lift’s runways, eliminating a potentially vehicle-damaging overhead obstruction, the company says. Two 9,000 lb. capacity rolling jacks also are included as standard equipment to enable wheels-free brake, tire, alignment and suspension work, Rotary Lift adds.
The AR18 has been third-party tested by ETL and approved by the Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) to meet industry safety and performance standards.
