Stertil-Koni Unveils the Power and Flexibility of Wireless Mobile Column Lifts at World of Concrete, Las Vegas

02/05/2013 | 2013

To demonstrate the superior lifting capacity, flexibility, user-friendliness and portability of its wireless mobile column lifts, Stertil-Koni took heavy duty lifting to new heights recently at the World of Concrete show in Las Vegas.

In a live, on-going demo over the course of four days, the recognized leader in heavy duty vehicle lifting systems, Stertil-Koni, drew large industry crowds as it showcased the performance of its highly regarded ST 1082 Wireless Mobile Column Lifts. Each ST 1082 has a lifting capacity of 18,000 lbs. per column, thus a set of four on the show floor – with a capacity of 72,000 lbs. – easily handled the lifting and lowering of a custom, flame-painted mixer.

Industry experts recognize that these lifts are distinguished by their highly dependable hydraulic lifting system that operates quickly, efficiently and smoothly – with low maintenance – in contrast to certain mechanical lifting approaches. Also, the unique Stertil-Koni synchronization system starts at a height difference of just 9/16th of an inch, thereby ensuring safe and smooth lifting and lowering cycles, especially in cases – such as concrete mixers – in which the vehicle weight distribution is decidedly unequal. Also drawing attention were the lifts’ forks. Because the standard length of the ST 1082 lifting fork is 14 inches, the Stertil-Koni mobile column lifts comfortably accommodate large vehicles with super single tires.

The attendees at World of Concrete were also shown the ST 1082’s fast lifting and lower capabilities—reaching a maximum height of 69 inches in just 89 seconds.

Clearly, one of the most eye-catching features of the Stertil-Koni 1082 is its wireless capability. The lifts require minimal setup time, as no interconnecting cables are required, and utilize a 24 VDC system, so no external power source is needed to operate them. The result is a superior heavy duty lifting system, with maximum access to the vehicle and no risk of tripping. Up to eight ST 1082 wireless mobile columns can be configured in a single lifting set and each column is equipped with a complete control box so the operator can control the vehicle height from any single column in the set.

For added safety, the Stertil-Koni ST 1082 is third-party tested and validated by ALI/ETL-Intertek.
