STEVENSVILLE, MD, Feb. 16, 2016 – Vehicle lift leader, Stertil-Koni, has announced the release of a dramatic new time-lapse animated video which clearly demonstrates the efficacy of the company’s recently introduced innovative lifting system, engineered to deliver a cost-effective solution to replacing aging and obsolete in-ground piston lifts.
Old lifts of this type are typically found in vehicle maintenance facilities at large municipal transit agencies, schools, and corporate trucking entities, and can present both environmental and safety hazards.
Stertil-Koni’s new solution, which can be seen at: Diamond Lift Frame, is based on its extremely popular DIAMOND LIFT “Cassette” Version and has been specifically engineered for concrete foundations, making it ideal for replacement situations.
The new lifting system, called DIAMOND LIFT “Frame” Version, is manufactured in Streator, Illinois, is ALI certified – demonstrating full compliance to National Safety Standards –uses less than five gallons of bio-degradable fluid per piston, and features a corrosion-free durable aluminum trench cover system with full drive-over load capacity.
The new “Frame” Version of the DIAMOND LIFT is available in either a two- or three-piston configuration with a total lifting capacity of 64,000 lbs. and 96,000 lbs. respectively.
According to Matthias Lennemann, Stertil-Koni’s USA sales manager for in-ground lifts, “Initial response to the DIAMOND LIFT ‘Frame’ Version has been extremely positive. Building on that momentum, Stertil-Koni has taken our customer-focused approach to the next level by producing an exceedingly high-quality, time-lapse video animation to help the viewer quickly understand the replacement process.”
“In sum,” continued Lennemann, “The DIAMOND LIFT ‘Frame’ Version represents a paradigm shift in the world of heavy duty vehicle lifting systems. In many cases, installing it into an existing pit can deliver time and cost benefits to the customer as compared to purchasing a completely new system.”
