Rotary Debuts All-Vehicle Lift Arms at 2023 SEMA Show

The new arms make it easier to correctly spot and lift nearly any vehicle, including next generation EVs, using a single lift.

Rotary, part of Vehicle Service Group (VSG), a Dover company, debuted its new, patent-pending All-Vehicle (AV) lift arms at the 2023 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas.

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.

The new Rotary AV lift arms allow for maximum reach and retraction to properly lift all vehicles within the rated lift capacity using OEM-recommended pick up points. Both large and small shops can now easily lift EVs, imports and luxury vehicles and will never have to turn business away because of the inability to properly lift specific vehicles.

“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.

The unique arm design eliminates the need to re-spot vehicles to properly reach OEM-recommended pick up points.

Among the numerous benefits the new AV lift arms bring to the automotive service space, Rotary highlights the following innovative features of the product:

  • Full clearance on EVs for easy battery removal and service
  • The shortest arm retraction in the industry by up to 9 inches (ideal for EVs, SUVs and unibodies in addition to standard vehicles)
  • A 30% larger pickup range than conventional two-stage lifts for easier vehicle spotting
  • The lowest profile arms for a two-post lift in the industry designed for working on low profile vehicles without interference.

“A lot of people talk about the importance of future-proofing automotive service shops to prepare for the surge in EVs,” Matthews added. “This is all that and then some. It’s helping shops prepare to service more vehicles, optimize operations and increase profits.”

Parts Rates for Warranty Reimbursement Could Be a Hidden Gem for Dealers

Parts rates are not a “set it and forget it” endeavor. Just like labor, they should be monitored and adjusted accordingly.

Parts Rates for Warranty Reimbursement Could Be a Hidden Gem for Dealers

Labor rates seem to be top of mind for most dealers as they embark down the warranty reimbursement path due in large part to the fact that labor rates typically increase annually and therefore yield the most room for improvement year over year. But most state statutes also include provisions for parts rates to be submitted annually, or semiannually in some cases. While some dealers assume that a parts submission won’t be worth the effort, that simply isn’t the case. Relying on that assumption could lead to dealers leaving a lot of money on the table.
