It’s Your Choice: Flush or Surface Mounted


Platform lifts from Stertil-Koni can give you the flexibility you need when searching for heavy duty vehicle lifting systems. If you’re in the market for a space-saving alternative and prefer a true, vertical rise lift – try the SKYLIFT.

SKYLIFT gives fleet managers a choice. Surface or flush mounted?

Surface: This heavy duty platform lift’s modular design allows surface mounted installation, reducing foundation requirements. The surface mounted SKYLIFT can be installed easily in an existing flat bay with no construction required.

Flush: A second option, is a “clear floor” flush mounted model. A flush mounted lift requires a modification to the floor – in other words – a depressed slab in the shop floor. The clear floor SKYLIFT is more user-friendly and offers no tripping hazards when recessed into the floor.  

And, the flush mounted installation doesn’t require approach ramps, which saves valuable shop space. This is especially true for transit applications with buses with low ground clearances which oftentimes require very long access ramps.

It's “Freedom of Choice,” Stertil-Koni’s commitment to providing an array of advanced, durable and safe lifts that fit your shop’s demands. 

Technicians immediately will take to the ease of the drive on runways, and free access from all sides – with no crossbeams, overhang or base frame to get in the way of servicing trucks, buses, heavy construction equipment and more. SKYLIFT safety measures include a mechanical locking system and automatic safeguard against overloading or uncontrolled descent.

These hydraulic lifts – flush and surface – will rise to 69” in 90 seconds. Both offer lifting capacities ranging from 62,400 to 78,000 lbs. Platforms, at 29.5” wide, come in lengths of 23, 26, 30, 33, 40 and 48 feet. Conjoining the lifts into a tandem configuration extends up to 100 ft. in length with a capacity of 156,000 lbs.

Talk about choice!
