Lift System Breakthroughs Herald New Era in Shop Efficiency and Management


Indianapolis, IN -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/31/2012 -- Nationally-based Greg Smith Equipment Sales announces a new era in lift systems for garages and truck repair shops. Their mobile column lift systems are perfect choices for those repair facilities that need to service larger trucks, but cannot dedicate the floor space to an oversized four post lift. Their two models -- the Atlas MC-36K and the MC-48K mobile column lift systems include 4 (9,000 lb. capacity each and 12,000 lb. capacity each, respectively) mobile columns, three sets of wheel diameter fork reducers and four (16,500 lb. capacity) tripod axle stands.

This provides all of the lifting power of a traditional four-post lift but, because the columns can be positioned to accommodate any size wheel base, they offer much greater flexibility and versatility. The portable nature of the mobile columns also means that the only time this lifting system is taking up space on the shop floor is when it is being used to lift a vehicle - no space is wasted on empty car lifts.

Lift columns can be used on any level concrete surface. (Six inches minimum) The extra-large column base provides maximum stability, and each column can be easily moved with the included dolly system. Both Mobile Column Lift Systems feature an electromechanical lift operation, with rolled steel screw spindles, with bronze main and safety nuts, providing a positive lifting mechanism. The carriages move on a series of extruded nylon runners which have a very low friction coefficient and provide excellent resistance to wear. These runners (made from Ertalon®) guarantee balanced lifting of the vehicle.

These auto lifts join a distinguished line of Greg Smith products, including lifts for automobiles, motorcycles, ATVs and more. See all Greg Smith Equipment lifts -- and their entire line of automotive equipment -- at
