Hunter’s RX16 scissor lift combines a space-saving low-profile design with added power and advanced features. The dual-capacity system offers the ground-clearance advantages of a standard-capacity lift to handle most vehicles, yet adds Hunter’s Power-Up feature to boost capacity if needed. Surface-mount installations offer a 76-inch maximum height and a low drive-on height of 9 inches, allowing clearance for vehicles with low ride height or low-hanging spoilers. The RX16 also can be installed in a shallow recess that sets the runways flush to the floor when fully lowered. Hunter’s Hi-Speed feature has a two-stage hydraulic pump that controls the fast rise and descent and also slows the lift automatically during the last several inches of descent. Two 9,000-pound-capacity swing air jacks lift vehicles off runways during alignment procedures and other service operations. Stainless-steel turnplates come standard, with PowerSlide turnplates available.
Parker Chelsea’s 877 Series power take-off is designed with a compact housing that helps eliminate clearance issues and offers two assembly arrangements to maximize installation possibilities. High-capacity bearings and gear designs provide torque ratings up to 670 lb.-ft. without derating the PTO for continuous applications. The 877 Series has a 10-bolt mounting pattern to fit on most automatic transmissions, while eight internal gear ratios provide a wide variety of speeds to meet additional applications. Direct-mount pump flange options are available with a wet spline design that helps increase PTO and pump shaft life.

Aerodynamic fixed-side fairings
Aerofficient’s aerodynamic fixed-side fairings are panels produced from an engineered injection-molded automotive-grade TPO material. The three-panel design consists of a top, middle and bottom panel that weighs about 100 pounds per side and features a hinged design that permits the fairing to clear a 24-inch-high obstruction. The bottom panel has a 180-degree swing and is able to bend inward 90 degrees as well as outward 90 degrees. The attachment brackets are fabricated from engineered hot-dipped galvanized steel. The fairings can be installed on a fully loaded sealed trailer in one hour per side by two technicians using common tools. An optional landing gear wrap for refrigerated trailers is available to help shield reefer fuel tanks.
Fluorescent leak-detection dye
Tracer’s Dye-Lite TP-3100 fluorescent dye is formulated to pinpoint leaking engine oil, hydraulic fluid, lubrication fluid, compressor oil and gearbox oil. Add a small amount of the dye to the system and allow it to circulate for several minutes; wherever there is a leak, the dye escapes with the oil and accumulates at the site. Scan the system with an ultraviolet or blue light lamp, and the dye glows a bright yellow color to reveal the location of all leaks. The dye can remain in the system until the oil is changed.

Bar’s Leaks Carbon Fiber Block Seal Head Gasket & Cooling Sealant for winter use is formulated to seal coolant leaks in radiators, heater cores, freeze plugs, gaskets, intake manifolds, cylinder heads and engine blocks. The cooling sealant is antifreeze-compatible, so there’s no need to flush the cooling system before using it, and it doesn’t need to be removed at the end of a repair, which means the sealant stays in the vehicle to protect the cooling system against future leaks. The sealant’s formula combines liquid glass (sodium silicate) with aramid and refractory fibers and is reinforced with carbon fiber to help bridge larger leaks and create the seal. The sealant also features the company’s proprietary Xtreme Cool wetting agent formulated to help reduce the surface tension of coolant to increase its wetting ability while improving heat transfer and reducing coolant temperature.

Emergency egress lighting film
Grote’s LightForm Emergency Egress Lighting Film employs the company’s LightForm low-profile LED technology and provides all of the advantages of adhesive exit markers with the added benefit of being powered, providing bright illumination that can help lead disoriented passengers to safety, even in dark or hazy conditions. The easy-to-install film requires no lens or bezel, while the solid-state lighting device is designed to resist water and concussion and will function properly even after significant damage. The film can conform to the shape and contours of most doors or exits, and its adhesive backing allows it to adhere to many surface materials. Multiple modules can be daisy-chained together, minimizing wiring and harness routing issues. The lamps come in a variety of colors, including red, blue, green, amber and Grote LED WhiteLight. The film comes standard in a 12V version; custom voltages and a 24V version also are available.

Electric chain hoist
Columbus McKinnon’s updated Lodestar Electric Chain Hoist has a capacity range of 1/8 to 3 tons and a wide range of speeds and is designed with lightweight, durable cast-aluminum housing and a powder-coated finish for high visibility. The control panel features finger-safe wiring and plug-and-play connectors and is built to allow for quick voltage change, access to terminal strips and fuse installation. The lifetime grease-lubricated gearbox means no changing and disposing of oil. An adjustable limit switch is designed to prevent the load from over-travel, and built-in overload protection helps prevent lifting of dangerous overloads. The overload clutch is located outside the transmission to facilitate easier maintenance access and is out of the load path to provide the operator more control in the event of an overload. A five-pocket liftwheel helps minimize chain wear.

Battery oil additive
Thermoil’s Battery De-Mister is a battery oil additive for nonsealed lead acid batteries. After using the additive and charging the battery, the hydrogen and oxygen gases migrating to the surface are slowed by the oil to help contain acid mist and fumes generated in the charging process, keeping the battery’s top free of acid deposits to help eliminate post and cable corrosion while reducing current leakage across the battery cover; the additive also helps reduce water consumption, toxic fumes and the risk of explosion.

Dual-view temperature display
Carrier Transicold’s Dual-View Temperature Display is an external temperature and status indicator that provides a reverse image in the rearview mirror so it appears correctly for drivers at a glance. The optional display mounts on the front corner of a refrigerated trailer for easy visibility in the mirror. The driver can verify the temperature inside the trailer without having to leave the cab to check the unit controller. Large amber LED numerals show temperature in up to three zones in Fahrenheit or Celsius. The dual-view display can be switched from reverse to normal view for yard monitoring of parked trailers. The bright display can be read in direct sunlight and dims to reduce glare for evening and night viewing. Sealed electronics protect the unit from weather and high-pressure water spray.
