"A New Direction in Lifts"

(Louisville, KY February 2009) -Fixed Ops Magazine publishes "A New Direction in Lifts" editorial. The January 2009 edition of the magazine features a full page ad and an editorial on our new AquaVantage™ Technology. The article speaks about the lifts’ air and water operation, it’s reliability and performance, it’s lower cost of ownership compared to traditional electric/oil inground lifts and its potential to help those dealerships pursuing LEED certification status.

Here are a couple quotes from the article - "Lifts powered by Water and Compressed Air Drive Energy Efficiency."

"One of the newest technologies for the service department is an in-ground lift using water (instead of petroleum or vegetable-based hydraulic oils) and compressed air (rather than electric motors) to raise and lower the unit."

"By eliminating the need for hydraulic oils and electrical power, water and compressed air-powered in-ground lifts save dealerships more than $24,000 in installation costs associated with running electrical to traditional electric-powered lifts. This new technology also operates more quietly, raises faster and higher than other lifts on the market. The water is safely contained inside anodized aluminum cylinders."
