JOHNS ISLAND, S.C. — LoRiser Lift has introduced the LoRiser1 wheel service lift, which is specifically designed to make wheel removal for tire and brake work on heavy duty vehicles fast, easy and safe, company officials said.
A metal containment vault housing lift components is flush mounted in the floor of the wheel service bay. Vehicle wheels are lifted clear of the floor using flip-up, axle-engaging adapters suitable for either front or rear axles, according to the company.
LoRiser uses a power system that is designed to combine hydraulics, a double-acting piston and a two-stage pump operating at optimum efficiency. The power system and fluid reservoir are housed in the control console above the floor. Hydraulic lines (in conduit) from the power unit to the vault provide easy access and eliminate the possibility of soil contamination, company officials said. The lifting unit is designed to be completely out of the way when not in use. A remote control pendant allows the user to operate the lift anywhere along the length of the vehicle.
The manufacturer confirms a 15-30 minute time savings in setup/teardown for tire, brake and suspension applications, with a return on investment of a year or less.
