MAHA Introduces Wireless Ball-Screw Column Lifts
MAHA’s new MCL Series precision ball-screw lifts will accommodate a wider array of tires on mid-range and heavy-duty vehicles, while bringing wireless mobile convenience and enhanced safety to shop floors. The wireless lifts are one of the only non-hydraulic wireless mobile column lifts on the market.
The MCL 12 and MCL 15 are new products, while the MCL 16 and MCL 18 have been redesigned. The architecture of the new lifts are engineered to accelerate the velocity of maintenance activities by providing a flexible vehicle lifting system that creates a more open, productive, and accessible work space.
All base frames for the MCL wireless ball-screw lifts feature a lower profile and longer leg structure that increases the column's stability, allowing them to engage low clearance vehicles more effectively. The main support column of each lift is formed from a solid, one-piece, hot-rolled, I-beam, giving it rigidity and stability, while reducing load and stress on interior structural welds.
The ball-screw column lifts are up to 30% lighter than wireless hydraulic column lifts that require heavy hydraulic fluid, cylinders, hoses, valves, and pumps. Unlike hydraulic lifts, precision-engineered ball-screw lifting mechanisms lift at a constant speed and are 90% efficient.
Lifting 12,000 pounds per column, the MCL 12 is a cost effective solution for lighter duty maintenance. It also offers an extra-wide universal carriage designed specifically for ag and farming vehicles with tires measuring up to 79 inches in diameter. The MCL 15 holds 15,000 pounds per column and features a 20-inch fork length and an extended base.
