Rotary’s New XA12 Alignment Scissor Lift Offers Wide Service Capacity Range in a Small Footprint

Rotary, part of Vehicle Service GroupSM (VSG), a Dover company, announced the new XA12 Alignment Scissor Lift. The lift is an addition to its line of lifts for independent shop owners, dealership service departments, and car enthusiasts.

The XA12 serves as a small bay alignment lift solution with the largest 4-wheel alignment wheelbase range in its class. With a 78 to 164 inch 4-wheel alignment wheelbase range and 12,000-lb lifting capacity, Rotary designed the XA12 for space savings and flexibility. Shops can offer alignment services with bay space to spare; technicians can perform alignments on a wider range of vehicles.

The XA12 fits within the smallest of service bays with a minimum bay size footprint of 12 by 23 ft. Its open front and rear design provides technicians with greater access to vehicle adjustment points; as a result wheel alignments and other repairs are easier to perform.

Additionally, the XA12 features adjustable radius gauges that quickly and easily configure for short and long wheelbases. The lift comes with two 6,000-lb capacity air-operated rolling jacks and longer rear slip plates for a greater wheelbase range. Additionally, hinged ramps automatically self-chock and drop down when the lift is raised, increasing the workspace around the lift.

“This is another example of Rotary’s commitment to ‘Serving the Shop’,” says Tim Vaughan, vice president of sales for VSG Americas. “The XA12 lift combines the ultimate in lift versatility and service capacity, allowing shops to serve a wide range of cars up to large trucks and anything in between.”

“Judging by the number of questions our sales team fielded about it at this year’s SEMA Show, we think this small footprint lift has the potential to generate some big results for our customers,” Vaughan adds.
