Many people ask why does a turntable cost more than $40,000, or is a $16,000 turntable any good and is it made in China.
We ask, why should a turntable cost more than a car that has 8 airbags, a stereo with 8 speakers, heating, air conditioning, power brakes, power steering, power windows, leather seats, etc.?
The turntable only does one thing. It simply turns a car around. But It must sustain the transfer of the inertia of 4000-6000 lbs. of car and it must do it every time, reliably for decades. CarTurner design spreads the load over the entire footprint. Therefore, you see only CarTurner turntables on grass or gravel at car auctions.
CarTurner brand turntables are made in the USA, in San Diego, California. The CarTurner turntable is designed to be an affordable home appliance and is sold as a complete package.
INDUSTRIAL GRADE BUILT TO LAST
Unlike most automobile turntables that are using 100-year-old technology, CarTurner was designed using 21st century technology similar to modern corporate jets. Our technology is patented.
The prototyping engineers were a team of rocket scientists who left General Dynamics and started their own aerospace engineering company. The production engineers were a team of former General Atomics engineers who formed their own company.
CarTurner is an industrial grade piece of equipment, overbuilt the same way aerospace equipment is, because reliability is critical.
