MADISON, Ind. — Rotary Lift has expanded its Mach Flex powered by RedFire remote-controlled mobile column lift lineup with the introduction of the MCHF14 FLEX.

The MCHF14 FLEX, with a rated lifting capacity of 14,000 pounds, is available in configurations of two, four, six, or eight columns, providing a lifting capacity of 28,000 pounds per axle and up to 112,000 pounds total. It can be used to lift most medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicles, according to Rotary Lift.

The MCHF14 FLEX will replace the MCHF13 FLEX, which had been the lowest-capacity lift in the Rotary Mach Flex powered by RedFire family of remote-controlled lifts. (Distributors will still sell any MCHF13 FLEX models they have in stock. Rotary Lift will also continue to sell the MCH13, a 13,000-pound capacity mobile column lift, according to the company.)

Rotary Lift now offers mobile column lifts with available lifting capacities of 13,000, 14,000, 18,000, and 18,800 pounds. Customers can choose between wired and wireless communications, as well as remote-control vs. column controls. Rotary’s remote-control technology is available for the MCHF14 FLEX and MCHF19 FLEX models. The remote control is designed to help control the synchronized mobile columns from anywhere in the service bay.   

“Mobile column lifts are incredibly popular because they’re so easy to buy and start using right away to service a wide range of vehicles,” said Doug Spiller, Rotary Lift heavy-duty product manager. “Adding the MCHF14 FLEX to our mobile column line gives customers the option of a mid-capacity lift with all the latest technology, including Rotary’s exclusive remote control. Our unmatched network of factory-trained distributors can work with customers to evaluate which lift is best for their specific needs.”

The MCHF14 FLEX features a joystick control for two speeds of up-and-down movement and a lower-to-locks button. Rotary’s LockLight technology is built in, illuminating a green light on top of each column when its mechanical locks are engaged.

The remote control is designed to guide the user step by step, eliminating the need to stay at each column to sync it before moving to the next. An auto resume feature allows users to push a button to use a previous configuration.

The MCHF14 FLEX is battery-operated with an onboard charger, so no cords are needed in the bay. Software updates can be implemented without cords, keys, chips, or opening the lift panel.
