MADISON, Ind. — Rotary Lift has expanded its product lineup to include the Rotary Flex Max lift, a new remote-controlled, wireless mobile column lift.

The Rotary Flex Max, powered by RedFire, is available in configurations of two, four, six, or eight columns, and provides lifting capacities of 14,000 or 18,800 pounds per column. It can be used to lift most medium-duty and heavy-duty vehicles, according to Rotary Lift.

“Our new Flex Max mobile column lift raises the bar on performance by giving technicians the choices they want in order to work in the most personally comfortable, productive, and efficient way possible,” said Doug Spiller, Rotary Lift heavy-duty product manager. “While many prefer the remote control for speed and the additional visibility around the vehicle it provides, others like the familiarity of running the lift from any of the columns.”

Rotary Lift's remote-controlled system reduces setup time by guiding the technician through the process and eliminating the need to stay at each column to sync it before moving to the next.

The Flex Max is equipped with Rotary Lift's patent-pending LockLight technology that shows technicians and shop managers whether the lift is resting on its mechanical load-holding locks. If a vehicle is in the air and the Flex Max lift’s locks are engaged, the built-in green light on top of the columns will illuminate, indicating to technicians that they can work on the vehicle.

The Flex Max lifts also include adjustable forks, a protected hydraulic cylinder, an automatic spring-loaded braking system with integrated steering, and a lower-to-locks button.

The Rotary Flex Max is battery-operated with an onboard charger, and software updates can be completed without cords, keys, chips or opening the lift panel.
