Lift Features

Rotary’s SPO16 is stacked with advanced features, including:

  • Trio™ 3-Stage Arms With Multi-Position Sliding Adapter: The SPO16 has a two-piece arm with three modes of flexibility to improve service ease, safety, and speed. The arm’s adjustable sliding adapter floats effortlessly into position, so technicians won’t have to deal with positioning heavy inner arms.
  • Optional Shockwave™: This innovative Rotary-exclusive technology is designed for auto shop owners who need the fastest raising and lowering times possible. Shockwave™ permits operators to lift class 1 through 5 vehicles in about half the time of the standard SPO16.
  • Spotline™ Motion-Activated Laser: This feature is standard on all Rotary lifts equipped with Shockwave™. Spotline™ makes spotting vehicles easy, as it projects a clear, bright-green laser at lift’s center.
  • Symmetrical Design: The SPO16 has a “Double S” symmetrical two-arm design, improving lift strength and accessibility.
  • Adjustable Width & Height: You can adjust this two-post lift to meet your shop’s unique needs. Just be sure your bay meets the recommended bay size outlined in the specifications.
