Rotary Introduces Moveable Pad Inground Lift

Rotary Lift's new SL210-MP8 Moveable Pad SmartLift inground lift makes raising a car for service faster and easier than ever. Plus, its ultra-low profile of just 2-3/8 inches (60 mm) reduces concerns about scraping the undersides of lower profile vehicles on the lift superstructure.

Rotary Lift’s ( new SL210-MP8 Moveable Pad SmartLift inground lift makes raising a car for service faster and easier than ever. Plus, its ultra-low profile of just 2-3/8 inches (60 mm) reduces concerns about scraping the undersides of lower profile vehicles on the lift superstructure.

To use Rotary Lift’s Moveable Pad SmartLift, technicians quickly slide four pads under manufacturer recommended pick-up points on the car being serviced. This patent-pending adjustment design provides an infinite number of positions to accommodate a wide range of unibody vehicles. The moveable pad style of inground lift is unique to Rotary in North America.

“Our customers asked us for a lift that will help increase their technicians’ productivity by reducing the time needed to properly position and raise a vehicle,” says Jim Dirksen, Rotary vice president of sales and marketing. “The Moveable Pad SmartLift is the solution. It’s perfect for quick service operations, and since the vehicle wheels are free, and not directly engaging the lift, it can also be used for tire and brake work, as well as routine maintenance. It’s an all-around performer for most unibody vehicles.”

The Moveable Pad SmartLift minimizes technician trip hazards and provides a wider unobstructed service area under the vehicle (36-3/4 inches between supports) than other inground lift models. It has a lifting capacity of 8,000 lbs. and a rise of 73-3/8 inches.

The lift comes standard with a multi-position spotting dish. Using this dish further reduces the amount of time technicians must spend properly spotting vehicles. Like all SmartLifts, the Moveable Pad model uses Easy Access cylinders and hydraulic hoses that can be serviced without removing the lift from the ground, reducing service call time up to 75 percent.

The SL210-MP8 SmartLift is ETL/ALI certified.
