Exclusive design provides wider space between plungers to simplify battery removal

Rotary Lift’s new IG210W inground lift was designed specifically to help technicians more efficiently service electric vehicles, sports cars and exotic vehicles. It provides greater under-car access than other inground lifts thanks to extremely low-profile arms and extra-wide piston spacing. 

The Rotary IG210W lift has 85 inches of clearance between its two plungers - about 45 percent more space than a standard inground lift offers. The increased distance between plungers also allows for greater drive-through clearance with no superstructure to drive over and better under-car access. 

“The additional work space this lift provides makes it easier and less time-consuming to remove electric car batteries that often span from pinch seam to pinch seam,” says John Uhl, Light-Duty Product Manager for Rotary Lift parent company Vehicle Service Group. “Many cars also have large under-car belly pans that need additional clearance to remove. This lift solves that problem by providing more room for the technicians and their tools, so they can work more efficiently.” 

Other features of the IG210W include:  

  • Self-contained steel cover that surrounds steel frame design

  • Maintenance-free guides and cylinders - column guides are set in maintenance-free oil bath 

  • Hardened chrome pistons designed for long lifting life 

  • Safety locking system - mechanical safety latch automatically engages  

  • Standard threaded rubber adapter pads.  

Lifting capacity is 10,000 pounds. The IG210W inground lift is third-party tested and ALI certified to meet industry safety and performance standards. Like all Rotary Lift products, it is backed by the industry’s largest factory-trained distributor network providing unmatched local service and support.
