An awesome SVI distributor in New York recently wondered if SVI could invent some type of press to get the arm pins out of the arm hole on surface-mount automotive lifts. SVI was told that on some Rotary lifts, for example, you have to pound upside down to get the pin out. He said surely other lift guys experience this and he would invent something if he only had the time. Not really thinking SVI would do anything with this suggestion, he was caught off guard when SVI not only reacted, they called to tell him his complimentary arm pin removal tool was in route on the UPS truck.
One of the most favorite things the SVI engineers enjoy is suggestions from the field. With SVI’s vast (huge/mega) databank of engineering documents on all different makes and models of automotive lifts, pulling a bunch of carriage, arm and arm pin drawings was the easiest way to compare various sizes and configurations. This quickly led to the design of a somewhat universal arm pin removal tool, per an awesome SVI distributor request.Previous ProjectNext Project
