Rotary Lift introduces V-REX, a vertical rise, drive-on platform lift that features patent-pending half-scissor legs and a mechanical locking system.
V-REX is manufactured with more steel than other vertical rise lifts — as much as 5,000-lbs. more steel per runway. It is available in three heavy-duty rated lifting capacities: 44,000 lbs., 64,000 lbs. and 80,000 lbs.
V-REX is available with five runway lengths, from 28 feet to 48 feet. It can be installed surface-mounted, recessed, or flush. V-REX has a vertical rise of more than 77 inches, open front and rear, and plenty of clearance around the four legs.
The V-REX legs feature four-bar engineered rotational linkages that transfer shear forces to the foundation, optimizing lift efficiency and decreasing installation costs, according to the company. This positive force leg design requires less maintenance than other styles. Because the legs feature rotational hinge links that rotate and pivot instead of sliding, they are more efficient and longer lasting.
Rotary Lift also has applied for a patent on the V-REX’s equalization system that’s built into the hydraulic cylinder to protect it from damage and expensive recalibration visits.
Technicians operate the V-REX lift with a control console featuring simple buttons and switches. The microprocessor-controlled unit monitors all mechanical and electrical synchronizations systems more than 125 times per second. The lift can be programmed with multiple pre-set heights. An optional pendant control lets technicians run the lift away from the console.
V-REX features Rotary Lift’s negative rake mechanical lock system with 10 locking positions at technician-friendly working heights.
The lift is designed and manufactured in Madison, Ind. It is third-party tested and ALI certified.
