MADISON, Ind., March 25, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --The San Francisco Municipal
Transportation Agency (SFMTA) has awarded a contract to Peterson Hydraulics,
Inc. for 21 Rotary Lift MOD30 environmentally friendly inground lifts and one
Rotary Lift parallelogram lift to be used at its James M. Woods Motor Coach


Over the next 18 months, Peterson Hydraulics will install the MOD30 lifts in
the maintenance garage and the parallelogram lift in the wash bay. The MOD30s
will replace the facility's original lifts from 1974. They will be installed
in stages, so as not to disrupt the busy maintenance operation at the Woods
24-hour facility.

"The MOD30 inground lift is perfect for a retrofit project because it consists
of modular components and doesn't require a lot of concrete forming and pit
replacement," said Daniel Peterson, president of Peterson Hydraulics. "In this
case, there should be less than six weeks of downtime per lift, which helps
keep things moving as smoothly as possible for SFMTA."

SFMTA engineering staff members conducted an exhaustive study and weighed
several options before choosing the Rotary Lift products. With a lifting
capacity of 60,000 lbs., the MOD30 provides a vast improvement over the
agency's old lifts, which had rated capacities of just 36,000 lbs. each.

The Woods Motor Coach Facility handles the maintenance, storage, fueling and
dispatching needs for 30- and 40-foot buses. Peterson Hydraulics, of Gardena,
Calif., will act as the job's general contractor; Ferris Hoist & Repair of
Hayward, Calif., will provide installation and supervisory staffing.
