Long Beach Transit ordered 12 Rotary Lift MOD30 environmentally friendly inground lifts to update its Anaheim Street Facility. The MOD30’s hydraulic system is contained within a six-foot deep modular housing, making it easy to install in existing shops.

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. Peterson Hydraulics will also lay an epoxy-coated floor with the new lifts.
“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.
LBT facility and maintenance department staff considered many options before selecting the MOD30. 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 is complete.
