MADISON, Ind. — Rotary Lift has updated the battery charger used in its MACH series mobile column lifts and has relocated it to a more protected area within the lift column for improved durability.
The compact battery charger uses the same technology that has been proven over five years in the vehicle lift manufacturer’s Shockwave-equipped two-post, four-post, and in-ground lifts, according to Rotary Lift.
“We improved the popular MACH series of mobile column lifts by moving the battery charger inside the structure for added protection, and at the same time enhanced the aesthetics of the lifts,” said Doug Spiller, Rotary Lift’s heavy-duty product manager. “The new charger offers the same power and performance as the previous battery charger in a smaller package.”
The on-board charger in each column uses 110-volt power to digitally charge two 12-volt batteries at one time, eliminating the need for 220-volt wiring. Battery power eliminates the need for power cords, and the mobile columns will operate even during a power outage, according to Rotary Lift.
MACH Series lifts are available in sets of two, four, six, and eight mobile columns, with either 13,000 pounds or 18,000 pounds of capacity per column. The lifts are available in both wired and wireless configurations. The lifts are also third-party tested and ALI certified to meet industry safety and performance standards.
