Wednesday, February 12, 2020
The Barron High School technical education department has a new piece of equipment for students in its automotive program.
The new “Rotary Lift” was installed Monday, Feb. 10, 2020 at the high school shop. Priced at $16,000, the unit is capable of lifting up to 14,000 pounds, according to Josh Meissner, tech ed teacher.
‘This is a cable-based hydraulic lift,” Meissner said in an email. “The main difference (from older types of hydraulic lifts) is that (the new unit) is a four-post drive on a lift instead of the more traditional two-post lift.”
