Rotary Lift Mobile Column Lift

Staff | September 28, 2010

The new Mach 4™ mobile column lift from Rotary Lift features easily adjustable forks that can handle a wide range of wheels, from small-tire applications on passenger cars to large-tire applications on trucks and buses, without adapter sleeves.

The Mach 4 is sold in sets of four or six battery-operated columns. Each column has a rated capacity of 18,000 pounds. The lift can raise a vehicle 70 inches in 78 seconds. Each column is powered by two deep-cycle marine batteries and is equipped with an onboard waterproof Minn Kota® charger. It can be used anywhere in the shop, including wash bays, as well as outside. Its hydraulic cylinder is positioned to protect its chrome piston rod from debris and damage.

The Mach 4 uses three communication cables (forming a horseshoe shape), leaving the front or back of the lift open. This layout enables technicians to drive vehicles in and out of the bay area without disconnecting and reconnecting cables. The cables are also located up and out of the way, and a quick tug on each disconnected cable automatically rewinds it into the built-in cord reel. Each of the Mach 4's columns is identical, so a technician can control the entire lift while standing at the most convenient column.
