New Rotary Lift Releases New Mobile Wheel Lift
Jan. 8, 2014—Rotary Lift announced the release of its new MW-200 Mobile Wheel Lift on Monday, with hopes that it will help reduce the risk of employee injury during wheel removal and installation.
“Back injuries account for one in five workplace injuries or illnesses,” said Ron Lainhart, parts and service manager for Rotary Lift. “The majority of those injuries occur when employees attempt to lift and position heavy or awkward objects like wheels. Since many collision repairs require the removal of at least a few wheels, the shop’s risk for injury increases with each job. Shop owners can protect themselves from expensive compensation claims and reduce injury downtime by providing technicians with an MW-200 mobile wheel lift.”
To use the air-powered MW-200 wheel lift, the technician raises the lift to wheel level, positions the wheel within the lift, rolls the lift backward, and lowers the lift to the ground. The MW-200 provides 200 lbs. of capacity at 100 psi, enough to lift a broad range of wheels and tires.
The MW-200 wheel lift has a rise time of just six seconds and features single-lever controls for quick operation. Its offset column provides unobstructed access to lug nuts and rolls on four high-quality casters for maneuvering on dirty shop floors. An air tool connection and parts tray are mounted on the column to reduce the number of hoses running from the compressor and keep everything organized.
