Rotary Lift Heavy-Duty Two-Post Lifts

SPO16.20 VEHICLES a8e43Rotary Lift's new heavy-duty two-post lifts, the SPO16 and SPO20, offer the company's highest capacity in the segment. Both feature Rotary's award-winning Trio arms and available Shockwave technology.

With lifting capacities of 16,000 lbs. (4,000 lbs. per arm) and 20,000 lbs. (5,000 lbs. per arm), these heavy-duty lifts are ideal for servicing most work trucks; the Trio arm design also accommodates smaller vehicles, like SUVs and cars, making them a great choice for mixed fleets and service centers.

Compact, Foldable Ken-Tool Multi-Lug Wrench

stow ad4d0Ken-Tool's new Stow & Go heavy-duty lug wrench (No. 35636) offers a fold-away design that allows the wrench to be compactly stowed when not in use. The moveable arms easily swing and lock into the 90-degree position, plus the arms can be slid within the locking hub to create greater leverage when removing and tightening a lug nut. The Stow & Go features three fixed (17mm, 19mm and 21mm) lug-nut sockets, plus a 1/2" square-drive adapter to use other sockets. It also doubles as a heavy-duty, high-torque wrench for removal of other bolts or nuts.

1 727ed
2copy f5775Ramsey Winch Co. recently launched its improved Hercules 25K and 50K winches. These Hercules models purposely were redesigned and tested for use with synthetic rope. (Specifically recommended by the company per owner's manual.)

Targeted for heavy wrecker and industrial applications that demand upwards of 50,000 lbs., Ramsey said the Hercules Winch's innovative design reduces overall weight, improves cable speed, and includes better rope management via roller tensioners. The units are designed for high boom angle, compression spring and dual drag brakes.

Capacity is 250' of 3/4" synthetic rope on the drum; the fabricated drum features higher tolerances and an additional drum flange increases freeboard.
