rot517The new space-saving Rotary Lift RLP77 Double-Section Scissor Lift offers several innovative productivity features that make it a reliable and economical choice for quick-service jobs and smaller service bays, says the company.

The Rotary Lift RLP77 scissor lift’s twin platforms were designed with productivity in mind. To service the widest range of vehicles, the lift’s extra-wide platforms feature hinged ramps that fold up and lock in place to extend the vehicle pick-up point surface. The ramps also can fold 65 degrees down and away, to give technicians more access to perform wheel and brake service. With more than 78 inches of clearance (when installed above ground), the RLP77 provides more headroom than other lifts. A low-profile design allows vehicles to drive over the lift platforms with ease.

The Rotary Lift RLP77 scissor lift incorporates a patent-pending, fully mechanical hydraulic system that does the lifting work equally for both platforms. This Synchrodrive hydraulic equalization system uses fewer moving parts, hoses, valves and seals than other scissor lift systems, to provide greater reliability and fewer wear parts. Synchrodrive also includes unique Blocked Platform protection to prevent out-of-level lowering. If something causes one platform to stop lowering (if it runs into a piece of equipment accidentally left in the bay, for example) the Blocked Platform function will stop both platforms from lowering further.

Rotary Lift Scissor Lift with Car“We conducted extensive field testing on the RLP77 Double-Section Scissor Lift,” says Bob Ford, Rotary Lift new product development manager. “In many cases, it was positioned in a bay right next to a competitive scissor lift. The technicians loved the blocked platform protection, the smooth, easy operation and the rigidity of the lift – it doesn’t bend, flex or strain when they put a heavier vehicle on it.”

Rotary Lift engineered the RLP77 scissor lift with a built-in dampener system that allows it to quickly, steadily and smoothly descend all the way to the floor. This eliminates the sudden acceleration in the last three to five inches of descent typical with other scissor lifts, which often results in a loud bang when the lift hits the floor.

The lift includes several features designed to protect against corrosion and wear, including a hot-dipped galvanized bottom weldment, patent-pending composite high-strength steel scissor legs, and stainless steel kicker rollers and kick plate. For added protection against accidental damage, the lift filter, regulator and lubricator assembly is located in a recessed area on the side of the control cabinet.

The Rotary Lift RLP77 scissor lift has a lifting capacity of 7,700 lbs. and offers a minimum clearance of just 4-5/8 inches. It comes with three heights of long-lasting polymer rubber pad adapter sets that work with most cars. An optional set of extended height 7-inch adapters is available for lifting SUVs and frame-based vehicles with short wheelbases. The RLP77 scissor lift has been third-party tested and is ALI certified to meet industry safety and performance standards.
