MADISON, Ind. — Rotary Lift's latest addition to its line of mobile column lifts, the RCH4, has an easy-to-use, operator-friendly design, according to the company.

The RCH4 is sold in sets of four, six or eight battery-operated columns. Each column is identical and has a rated capacity of 18,000 pounds, for total lifting capacity of up to 144,000 pounds. It can lift a vehicle 70 inches in 78 seconds.

The RCH4 also features Rotary Lift's automatic steering system, which makes it faster and easier to position the columns for service. Fixed forks fit most large tires without adjustment, so technicians can get the vehicle up in the air for service more quickly, officials said.

Every column is equipped with Rotary Lift's patented control panel. These intuitive controls include a graphic layout of the column set up, real-time height reading and error display, a battery indicator, programmable height limit settings and one-touch controls. Lifting and lowering of all columns is automatically synchronized, and there is a slow-lowering function for precision vehicle positioning.

Additionally, the RCH4 is battery operated with an internal charger, eliminating the need for power cords and improving the lift's portability. Its hydraulic cylinder is inverted so the chrome piston rod is protected from debris and damage at all times.

"The new RCH4 is an excellent choice for maintenance managers who are looking for a mobile column lift that's affordable and has the features and benefits they need to improve shop productivity," said Doug Spiller, Rotary Lift heavy-duty product manager.

There are a number of optional accessories available for the RCH4:

• A high-efficiency LED system provides hands-free lighting under the vehicle.
• Steel reducer sleeves slide onto the forks to allow proper contact with smaller radius tires.
• A large wheel riser kit raises tires on ramps to allow for proper fork placement.
• A weight gauge shows technicians the load weight of the vehicle being lifted.

The RCH4 mobile column lifting system has been third-party tested by ETL and ALI certified to meet industry safety and performance standards.
