What is a rotary lift? Where is it located?

It's a brand of automotive lift. The voltage seems like a 3 phase? I have never hooked one up yet so can't say for sure. I do however remember when I use to work at a dealership our lifts were three phase. Ben

Ah. I see. Thank you.

12/2 is all you need if the panel is relatively close.

#12 wire is fine, I wouldn't use #10. 12 is much easier to work with.

A 20 amp breaker will likely work, but if it trips on starting a 30 is the maximum allowed by code. This is one of the few times it's legal to use a 30 with #12s, and only if the motor is hard-wired. No cord-and-plug.

#12gauge {4.0mm˛} will work just fine with this useage and you will need 20A double pole breaker*

* if kick out the breaker during start up go with either 25 or 30 amp breaker { note this is allowed per art 430 only with hard wired motour hook up.}

Merci,Marc
