Rotary, part of Vehicle Service Group, a Dover company, announced its new, patent-pending All-Vehicle (AV) lift arms.

The new arms are a breakthrough innovation from Rotary designed to make it easier for automotive service professionals to correctly spot and lift nearly any vehicle make and model — including next generation EVs — using a single lift.

As vehicle designs continue to evolve in recent years, selecting the right lift equipment is becoming more of a challenge for automotive service professionals. As a result, shops have had to utilize multiple types of lifts to provide full service or offer limited service on some vehicles due to space constraints.

Rotary AV Lift Arms Perfect for Any Vehicle Type

The latest Rotary AV lift arms provide an extended reach and efficient retraction, ensuring the proper lifting of vehicles within the specified capacity by utilizing manufacturer-recommended pickup points.

“Whether retrofitting an existing Rotary SPOA10 series lift or installing a next-generation lift system with the AV arms, shops will have the only automotive two-post lift they’ll ever need,” said Jason Matthews, Director of Product Management for Rotary.

This versatile solution accommodates a wide range of vehicles, including EVs, imports, and luxury cars, enabling both large and small shops to lift various vehicle types without the worry of turning away business due to lift limitations.

The distinctive arm design eliminates the need to reposition vehicles to reach the recommended pickup points, exemplifying Rotary's commitment to "Serving the Shop." This innovation assists shop owners and technicians in enhancing the efficiency of their repair operations, optimizing both labor time and cost savings.

Rotary AV Lift Arms Ensure Maximum Efficiency

Highlighted features of the AV lift arms include:

  • Full clearance on EVs, facilitating easy battery removal and service.
  • The industry's shortest arm retraction, up to 9 inches, making it ideal for EVs, SUVs, unibodies, and standard vehicles.
  • A 30% larger pickup range compared to conventional two-stage lifts, simplifying vehicle positioning.
  • The industry's lowest profile arms for a two-post lift, designed to work on low-profile vehicles without interference.
