Rotary Lift TRIO Arms Now Standard on SPOA10 Two-Post Lift
Sept. 2, 2015—The Rotary Lift SPOA10 has been upgraded with the company’s patented TRIO Arms, now standard on the 10,000 lb.–capacity lift. TRIO Arms feature a proprietary three-state design in a two-piece package that allows technicians to choose from a wide range of easily adjusted adaptors for any application.
The TRIO Arms, first introduced in 2011 on the Rotary Lift SmartLift inground lift, provide all the capabilities of regular three-stage arms in a more versatile package. On TRIO Arms, the third telescoping arm segment is replaced with an integrated lightweight sliding adapter assembly, which easily allows technicians to interchange truck adapters, round polymer adapters or three-position flip-up adapters. The adapters can be rotated 360 degrees and easily slide along the lift arms, allowing technicians to make precise adjustments to the adapter location when setting up the lift.
“In order to properly engage a vehicle’s pick-up points, technicians using regular three-stage arms have to move the heavy innermost stage into place while reaching under the vehicle on their hands and knees,” says Bob Ford, new product development manager for Rotary Lift. “With TRIO Arms, the technician can simply slide the lightweight adapter itself to the desired position. There’s less telescoping needed, which saves time, reduces technician stress and can help get the vehicle in the air more quickly. The SPOA10TRIO lift is just one more example of how for the last 90 years Rotary Lift has been always innovating, not imitating.”
The SPOA10TRIO’s ability to switch between flip-up adapters for body-on-frame vehicles, round polymer adapters for unibody vehicles, and thread-up truck adapters make it a more universal lift.
