April 18, 2010 Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Google+ Challenger is proud to offer the very latest in environmentally friendly shop equipment from Challenger to Tampa Bay area service professionals and automotive garages. The AV1020series EnviroLift® with patented AquaVantage™ Technology uses compressed air and tap water instead of electrical motors and hydraulic oil, making it the one and only realGREEN™ earth friendly product. With no high pressure cylinders, a fully contained recycled polymer cassette tub, fewer moving parts, and lifting mechanisms that are service accessible from the surface, you get a more productive automotive lift service bay with an overall lower cost of ownership. And since it’s powered by the air pressure you already have, there are no noisy, energy-consuming motors.

From the first steps of manufacturing to the final assembly and installation to green sustainability, each AquaVantage™ automotive lift is resurrected from the best design , materials and workmanship, resulting in a better bottom line. These auto lifts are precision manufactured, with each lift component being rigorously pressure tested. They are less expensive to install and maintain and feature ergonomic pneumatic lift power controls.

The moment you see its gleaming pistons rise from the floor you’ll understand why it’s a better solution to lifting. Its advantages are clear as water.
