Vehicle Service Group part of Dover and one of the world's leading automotive equipment companies, announced the launch of the Portal Lift 17 Vario, a new suspended pit lift under the Rotary brand in the EMEA (Europe, the Middle East and Africa) region.

The Portal Lift 17 Vario joins Rotary's Blitz Series and has been engineered for heavy-duty use, with a capacity of 17 tons. Developed with a long-standing and innovative lift technology, the Blitz Series pit lifts are recognized for high-quality safety features and ergonomic operating components.

The Portal Lift 17 Vario elevates the Blitz Series by adding three new features that aim to make heavy-duty lift operations easier:

  • Turn 3 into 1: a unique combination that enables you to pick up, lift and support any vehicle.
  • Fully adaptable to any pit: measuring the pit becomes a minor matter thanks to the adjustable chassis.
  • Ergonomic control: wired remote control of the lifting operations.
