Total Tool Announces Exclusive Agreement With Rotary Lift, The World’s Leader in Heavy-Duty Hydraulic Lifts

Total Tool Now Holds Distribution Rights For Upstate New York and Vermont

(Castleton, New York) — Total Tool, one of the Northeast’s largest distributors of automotive service equipment for vehicle repair shops, today announced an agreement with Rotary Lifts that names Total Tool Ltd. the heavy-duty distributor for Rotary Lift for most of Upstate New York and all of Vermont.

Total Tool now has exclusive distribution rights for sales, installation, and service of Rotary Lift light duty 2-post lifts and heavy-duty in-ground and above-ground vehicle lifts in a geographic area that spans from New York State’s Orange County to the south, Canada to the north, Utica to the west, and all of Vermont.

The agreement will shorten the purchasing process for municipalities, schools and other public agencies, as Rotary Lift’s heavy-duty lifting products recently became available through the National Joint Powers Alliance (NJPA). The purchasing cooperative allows government agencies to buy competitively priced equipment using a simple purchase order instead of having to individually bid out purchases, a system that can take time and tax resources.

“Our customers will now be able to streamline their buying process through Total Tool with the addition of Rotary Lift’s NJPA-approved products,” said Kathy Dederick, owner of Total Tool.

Total Tool, a woman-owned family business that has operated since 1982, sells automotive repair equipment, vehicle lifts, compressors, wheel-service equipment, alignment equipment, waste oil burners, lubrication systems, exhaust systems and other equipment for automotive repair shops. Rotary Lift, based in Madison, Indiana, is a world leader in the lifting equipment industry.
