Rotary Two Post Lift

Does anyone know anything about Rotary Lifts and Revolution Lifts?

The only thing I know is a friend runs an oil change shop and has had a Rotary 9000# lift in there for over 10 years with no problems. They are a bit pricey when compared to the Chinese made lifts.

Revolution seems to be Rotary's imported lift. Has any one seen or know of them?

Rotary lifts are the best above ground type lifts. They cost more than an import though, but they are certfied by ANSI / ETL. I do not know about their import lifts (Revolution). The only certified import lift in the cheap price range (around $1800) I know of is "Direct Lift" four post. They may now have a certified two post. If you have the money, I would go Rotary. If you are looking for a cheaper import try to find one that is ANSI / ETL certified.

I have worked around 20 or more Rotary lifts used all day everyday in the last 30 years and have yet to see the first one break.

I have a chance to buy a little used 5 year old SPO10 with a 2' height extension on it for $3000. It was installed in a residential garage. The guy used it to lift his 34 Ford. His health is not good so wants to sell. The dealer close to me says he sold it to him and they are $4400 now.

I think I may get it.
