Floor-running pit lifts have caster wheels so technicians can roll them anywhere in the pit. These are a good choice for applications where there are several interconnected pits. The lifts can be rolled from pit to pit as needed, then stored when not in use. Pit lifts enable technicians working in the pits to raise trucks above ground level to perform maintenance and repair tasks that require the vehicle to be lifted, such as brake, wheel and transmission work. A single pit lift can raise a commercial truck. Lift capacity ranges from 30,000 to 44,000 pounds. Pit lifts are mobile and have been designed specifically to safely raise commercial vehicles positioned over a pit. They are widely used in Europe but are new to North America, where they are available only from Rotary Lift and its distributors. Adding a pit lift converts a pit into a full service bay that can be used for virtually any maintenance and repair task. This conversion costs about $10,000, which is far less than a new surface or inground lift.
