Rotary Lift receives U.S. Patent for Trio Three-Stage Lift Arms

Lift arm-RotaryRotary Lift has been granted United States patent 8,973,712 for its Trio vehicle lift arms.

Trio arms have up to a 20 percent greater reach than traditional lift arms, so they can be used to service a wider range of vehicles. Rotary Lift says the proprietary three-stage design enables technicians to more easily move the arms into position and then precisely position adapters exactly where they’re needed for proper lifting. Trio arms come standard on the Rotary Lift SmartLift 10,000 lb. capacity inground lift.

“Trio arms have the most advanced arm design around. Their versatility, ease-of-use and precision makes them very popular with technicians, service managers and shop owners. A single lift equipped with Trio arms can service practically any vehicle under 10,000 lbs., from a unibody car to a light-duty pickup,” says Jim Dirksen, vice president of light-duty for Rotary Lift. “As the technician population ages, bay ergonomics become increasingly important. It’s easier to slide just one telescoping arm and then move an adapter than it is to slide two heavy arm sections. Plus, with today’s vehicle designs, it’s more important than ever that technicians lift a vehicle only at the OEM-designated lifting points. No other lift arm out there offers the fine adapter adjustment made possible by our Trio arm design.”
