Rotary Lift High-Capacity Alignment Lift Provides Flexible Repair Options

Rotary’s Alignment Lift Provides Flexible Repair Options

The open-front design is engineered for both cars and commercial vehicles up to 22,000 lbs.

Rotary’s new ARO22 Alignment Lift now makes it easier for shops to service a wider range of vehicles. This high-capacity lift can handle everything from passenger vehicles to larger work trucks.

The alignment-ready lift has a 26-in.-wide platform runway with 40-in. spacing in between. It is also equipped with air-operated rolling jacks, including a 9,000-lb.-capacity front jack and a low-profile, 15,000-lb.-capacity rear jack. With these features, the ARO22 can service everything from low-profile Class 1 passenger vehicles to Class 5 vehicles weighing up to 22,000 pounds.

“This lift was designed to accommodate the widest range of vehicles and enhance technician productivity, which is key to helping shops boost profitability,” said John Uhl, director of product management for Rotary. “It’s important for shops to have the flexibility they need to tackle anything from alignments and tire repairs to brake and suspension work.”

The lift’s air-locking rear steer plates are operated from a power column that eliminates the manual process of setting pins, allowing for a quality alignment, while LED lights integrated in the runway platforms illuminate the undercar to improve the work environment. This feature replaces the need for auxiliary lighting and enables technicians to focus on repairs and adjustment.

The optional SmartFILL integrated air inflation system lets technicians set the tires to the desired PSI while performing other work and has an optional dual tire filling capability that enables separate pressure settings for front- and rear-axle tires.

Understanding that safety is critical in any shop, the system’s patented articulating roller system and oversized front columns are designed to help evenly distribute the load balance, while the Sentinel Lock system features oversized slack cables and guide arm to ensure the lock latch stays in place. This helps extend the life of the lift and allows technicians to easily set up a vehicle and safely and quickly make repairs. 

“Keeping a shop efficient and productive is one of our customers’ top priorities, and to achieve that, it’s important to have the right equipment in place,” added Uhl. “We have been an industry leader for 95 years, and it’s important for us to continue to produce quality equipment that helps speed up repairs, boost accuracy and give technicians what they need for safety and reliability.”

The ARO22 lift is compatible with Rotary’s technician-friendly towerless alignment systems and with other alignment systems on the market.

Why Do Vehicles Go Out of Alignment?

If camber, caster or toe are out of specifications, there is usually a reason why.

You’ve seen it a hundred times. A vehicle comes in with abnormal wear on a front tire. It looks like camber wear. One shoulder is badly worn, but the other front tire appears to be OK. You put it on your alignment machine and check camber and toe. Sure enough, camber on the wheel with the worn tire is out of specifications. You visually inspect the suspension for obvious signs of wear or damage like collapsed control arm bushings, a bad ball joint, or a weak or broken spring, but you find nothing. You assume the front end is out of adjustment, so you reset camber to specifications and send the customer on his or her way.
