Vehicle lifts need care too
By Ron Lainhart

Both good reasons to keep all vehicle lifts in operating order through routine inspections and maintenance.
Rotary Lift, Madison, IN, offers these steps to ensure lift function and safe operation:
Read and follow guidelines in the lift owner’s manual as maintenance and inspection procedures vary for each brand.
Schedule an annual inspection for all lifts in the shop by a factory-authorized technician recommended by the manufacturer.
Keep lifts well lubricated according to manufacturer guidelines.
Insist on genuine OEM replacement parts manufactured to original design specifications.
Consult Automotive Lift Institute (ALI) maintenance and inspection guidelines available through www.autolift.org.
