  • Could retrofit work for you?


    Have you considered updating your current inground lift with a Rotary Retrofit? It’s easier than you think and you’ll get upgraded equipment faster and without the expensive cost of new excavation. Most lift frames, concrete walls and pits are in great shape. Cylinders can be easily replaced. This extends the life of a long-term investment.


    For repair shops with heavy-duty inground lifts that are 20 to 40 years old, escalating maintenance costs and safety concerns can lead management to conclude that it’s time for a new lift.


    Questions you should ask before deciding buy new or retrofit:

    • What does the concrete around your current lift look like?
    • Is the pit structurally sound? This must be evaluated by a structural engineer.
    • Will the new lift components fit in the existing pit?
    • What are the benefits of a new certified lift?
    • Is it possible to overcome current obstacles that we’ve lived with the entire time our old lift has been here?


    All these questions and any other you might have can be answered by filling in the form to the right or giving our team a call @ 800-640-5438 ext. 2 for the Heavy-Duty department.
