Rotary Lift SPO18 Two-Post Lift Helps Boost Productivity For JASPER Alternate Fuels

When JASPER Engines & Transmissions of Jasper, Ind., needed a new vehicle lift for its growing alternative fuels business, it turned to fellow Southern Indiana company Rotary Lift to buy an SPO18 heavy-duty two-post lift.

JASPER Engines is a leading remanufacturer of drivetrain components, including gasoline and diesel engines, transmissions, and differentials. Its products are built in five locations,with two distribution centers and 40 branch locations across the United States. Independent repair shops around the country install 500 JASPER parts every day.

JASPER Alternate Fuels is a small but growing division of the company that offers complete conversion packages, including alternative fuel engines and accessories, as well as installation. Due to increasing demand for these products, the company needed to install a new heavy-duty vehicle lift dedicated to its alternative fuels business.

“You absolutely must have a quality heavy-duty lift in order to efficiently perform alternative fuel conversions,” says Doug Bawel, JASPER chairman/CEO. “For example, one loaded CNG tank weighs about 350 lbs. It’s just not practical to expect a technician to lie on his back under a vehicle and bench press a 350-pound component into place. Our new Rotary Lift SPO18 lets our technicians raise a vehicle to a comfortable working height so they can use multipurpose jacks to ergonomically position the fuel tanks and other components. Plus, the lift provides a well-lit, spacious work area where our guys can comfortably fabricate components and run lines under the vehicle. We are seeing significant productivity gains with this lift, and are recommending it to all of our installers.”

JASPER already has several light-duty Rotary Lift two-post lifts installed in the R&D center at its Indiana headquarters. It uses the new SPO18 two-post lift when performing alternative fuel conversions for customers and to help in its new product development process.

The SPO18 has a lifting capacity of 18,000 lbs. It comes equipped with a multi-position locking system that engages every four inches and an overhead switch bar to prevent raising a vehicle too high. A six-position wheel-spotting dish helps accurately spot a wide variety of vehicles, and stackable adapters make contacting the vehicle’s pickup points quick and easy. The SPO18 two-post lift is made in Madison, Ind. It has been third-party tested by ETL and ALI certified to meet ANSI safety and performance standards.
