Madison, Ind. – As part of the celebration to commemorate the 15th anniversary of SmartLift®, the world’s most popular inground lift, Rotary Lift conducted a campaign to give away the 50,000th SmartLift. Thousands of entries were received, and a winner has been drawn: Keith Pastorius, service manager of Precision Auto Repair in Mayville, Wisc.
The 50,000th SmartLift inground lift is a 10,000 lbs. capacity model that features the patent-pending new Trio™ superstructure. This new design increases technician productivity by providing greater drive-through clearance, improved lift-to-vehicle clearance, and extended arm reach. A plaque affixed to the lift’s superstructure features the “Proven 15/50” campaign logo and marks the significance of the 50,000thSmartLift. Pastorius also received a framed certificate recognizing Precision Auto Repair as the giveaway winner. It was presented by the shop’s local distributor, Oil Equipment Company of Madison, Wisc.
“We’d like to thank the dealers and shop owners who have made SmartLift the world’s best-selling inground lift,” says John Rylee, Rotary Lift director of marketing. “Customers know they can count on the Rotary Lift SmartLift. It’s the original environmentally friendly inground lift with proven performance in thousands of service facilities worldwide for more than 15 years.”
When it comes to bay productivity and shop profitability, nothing beats a SmartLift inground lift. SmartLift inground lifts take up less space than surface lifts, have no above-ground posts to get in the way and offer unrestricted access to all of a vehicle’s service parts. They also have a longer useful life than surface lifts, providing reliable service for 30 years or more.
The SmartLift also offers a host of environmentally friendly features. Its underground components are completely enclosed in a polymer composite housing made of recycled materials. The containment unit protects the environment from any potential leaks, while at the same time protecting the lift itself from corrosion and electrolysis. The SmartLift also uses less than five gallons of hydraulic fluid and can operate on bio-based fluid. SmartLift inground lifts do not rely on expensive and inefficient air compressors to operate. Their small, economical motor runs only when the lift is being raised. The lift’s air locks use a minimal amount of air from a shop’s standard air system.
Lift service times are also slashed with SmartLift. All SmartLift maintenance can be performed at ground level without removing the lift. Rotary Lift’s patented EasyAccess™ cylinder does not require bleeding and can be serviced in just two hours — that’s 75 percent less time than required for competitive cylinders, providing a significant savings in downtime.
Rotary Lift SmartLift inground lifts are made in the U.S.A. They are third-party tested by ETL and ALI certified to meet ANSI safety and performance standards.
