Stertil-Koni Announces Strong Market Reception to the Platform Lift: The SKYLIFT

08/05/2012 | 2012

Stertil-Koni, the leader in heavy duty bus lifts and truck lifts, today announced that marketplace reaction to the company’s highly regarded SKYLIFT underscores the product’s unique efficiency, versatility and safety.

Classified as a platform lift, the SKYLIFT uniquely provides a “clear floor” concept for the user. The product’s elegant design includes two independent runways, vertical lifting, no crossbeams, no overhang and no base frame. “As a result,” explained Stertil-Koni President, Dr. Jean DellAmore, “the SKYLIFT provides free access from all sides with easy installation and minimal maintenance.” The heavy duty lift’s modular design allows for flush mounted or surface mounted installation and permits various lengths to be incorporated in a single lift.

Added Dr. DellAmore, “The SKYLIFT has been specifically engineered for a large range of heavy duty vehicles and truly optimizes valuable working space thanks to its vertical lifting design.” In addition, from the all-important safety perspective, the SKYLIFT provides maximum access to the vehicle from all sides with no tripping hazard and clear floor access. Further, each leg is equipped with an individual measuring device to ensure a smooth and level synchronization within tight tolerances.

The SKYLIFT is available in two models. SKY-200 has a capacity of 62,400 lbs.; and SKY-250 has a capacity of 78,000 lbs.
