The MOD30s will replace existing lifts at LBT's Anaheim Street Facility. The
order includes 11 60,000-lb. capacity two-piston models and one three-piston
version rated at 90,000 lbs.
"We've installed more than 250 Rotary Lift MOD30 inground lifts since they
were introduced 10 years ago, and half of those were ordered to replace old
units," said Dan Peterson, president of Gardena, Calif.-based Peterson
Hydraulics. "The MOD30's modular design and containment housing makes
installing the lift in existing facilities easy and cost-effective."
The Rotary Lift MOD30 uses half the hydraulic fluid required by traditional
inground lifts. The entire system is contained in a six-foot deep steel
enclosure that is coated inside and out with Rotary Lift's exclusive
EnviroGuard^™ sealant to protect against electrolysis and contamination.
To enhance productivity, the MOD30 features an automatically positioning
moveable piston and automatic trench covers. Rotary Lift's patented universal
saddle adapter further reduces setup time, and the lift's upright console
eliminates the need to bend down to operate the controls. The MOD30's proven
design has been serving fleet customers across North America for over 10
Work is scheduled to begin shortly and run through February 2014. Peterson
Hydraulics will train LBT technicians on proper use and maintenance of the
lifts after the first phase of installation.
LBT buses carry 28.2 million customers annually through Long Beach, Lakewood,
Signal Hill and portions of nearby California communities.
