Upgrade Rotary Lift SM-Series lift to perform car, truck and bus alignments


Rotary Lift says technicians can increase service capabilities by turning an 18,000 lb. or 30,000 lb. capacity heavy-duty Rotary Lift SM series four-post lift into an alignment lift using the company’s new bolt-on alignment kit.

With the retrofit installed, technicians can use an SM-series lift to align most vehicles, from work trucks to day cabs.

Full alignment kits for the 18,000 lb. capacity Rotary Lift SM18 include two 4,500 lb. capacity stainless steel turning radius gauges and rear slip plates. The parts are compatible with all brands and types of alignment instrumentation. For the SM30 and older SM300 models, 7,500 lb. capacity radius gauges are provided.

The SM18 is built to expand a shop’s capabilities beyond light duty service. With the alignment kit, the lift can be configured to handle alignments on Class 5 work trucks with wheelbases as long as 162 inches. The SM30 accepts wheelbases up to 307 inches, including most school and transit buses.

The lifts feature technician-friendly single-point release air locks that save time by opening all four column locks from one button. Ramp chocks engage automatically as the lift is raised to improve setup efficiency. Runways feature a non-skid coating to provide sure footing.
