STEVENSVILLE, MD, September 22, 2016 – Heavy duty vehicle lift leader Stertil-Koni today announced the North American rollout of the company’s just-released ST 1064, a high-performance, lower capacity hydraulic mobile column lift with a capacity of 14,000 lbs. per column, or 56,000 lbs. for a set of four.
Engineered to deliver an optimal combination of flexibility, productivity and efficiency, the latest offering from Stertil-Koni was developed by a specialized team of professionals for commercial vehicle maintenance facilities of all types seeking a full-featured mobile column lifting system with slightly reduced lifting capacity – all at an attractive price point.
Modeled after the popular ST 1075 (capacity 16,500 lbs. per column), the ST 1064 is available in three models:
Cables with three phase power (208/220/460V) connecting columns;
Battery operated (2 12 volt batteries per column) with wires connecting columns; and
Totally wireless (no cables or wires).
Each of the three models is equipped with the latest in mobile column lifting technology, the ebright Smart Control System, as standard. It utilizes a 7-inch color monitor to present all relevant operating information at a glance and features a user-friendly touch pad to configure options such as language as well as an ID-Key to prevent unauthorized operation.
Further, the Stertil-Koni ST 1064, like all of the company’s mobile column lifts, features state-of-the-art hydraulic technology, is manufactured with high quality, high tensile DOMEX steel for maximum strength, delivers fast lifting and lowering and has a mechanical locking system for added safety that starts at just 18.25 inches above floor height and continues up the entire length of the lift every 1 3/8th inches.
In making today’s announcement, Stertil-Koni president, Dr. Jean DellAmore, noted: “Stertil-Koni is dedicated to meeting and exceeding all of our customers’ requirements, an approach we call ‘Freedom of Choice.’ With the debut of the ST 1064, we are responding to the industry’s request for a robust, flexible, full-featured vehicle lifting system with slightly lower capacity and a comparably reduced cost structure.”
Continued DellAmore, “This highly-portable hydraulic lift can safely and efficiently hoist virtually any heavy duty vehicle by its tires and operates on any level floor, indoors or outside. Plus, multiple thirty-two-column lifting sets can be operated simultaneously in one area without interference from other lifting sets.”
User benefits of the ST 1064 are compelling: Setup time is minimal; lifting speed is fast -- it only takes 70 seconds (VAC- 3 phase) to reach its maximum lifting height of 73-inches, thereby speeding up vehicle servicing time – and the hydraulic technology employed is proven, durable and safe.
The Stertil-Koni ST 1064 –FMA operates via a three phase 208-180 VAC or single phase 220 VAC; ST 1064-FBA is battery operated, and ST 1064-FWA is wireless.
