STEVENSVILLE, MD June 19, 2018 – Southwest Lift & Equipment Inc., an exclusive Stertil-Koni distributor located in San Bernardino, CA, recently showcased the very latest in heavy-duty (HD) vehicle lifting technology for industry leaders during an education and safety forum.
Dean McDonald, president of the host company notes, “Stertil-Koni is at the forefront of technology in the heavy duty lift arena. This was a unique opportunity for leaders in the public and private sector to get hands-on with some of Stertil-Koni’s superior products.”
Highlighted at the event was the optional Continuous Recess moveable lifting unit in the DIAMONDLIFT, an industry first for piston-style lifts in North America. This option helps solve the challenge of safely and efficiently lifting many low-clearance, heavy-duty vehicles.
The Continuous Recess unit allows the bolster to recess flush to the floor anywhere in the horizontal range of piston travel. The bolsters remain completely flush with the floor which facilitates lift set-up, minimizing the possibility of hitting the lift with the vehicle and reducing tripping hazards.
Other products demonstrated by Southwest Lift & Equipment and Stertil-Koni professionals were:
• ECOLIFT, the ultra-shallow, full-rise axle-engaging inground scissor lift;
• 2-Post FREEDOM lift, a symmetrical, open floor design that optimizes workspace, providing wheels free maintenance;
• Mobile column lifts, safely raise a wide-range of HD vehicles quickly and efficiently, and
• SKYLIFT, a platform lift that provides a “clear floor” concept for the user with a true, vertical rise.
Attendees also learned about the ebright Smart Control System, Stertil-Koni’s advanced fingertip touchscreen technology that displays real-time lift operation information and is available on all mobile lifts, ECOLIFT and DIAMONDLIFT.
Southwest Lift & Equipment services the Southwestern region of the U.S. with Stertil-Koni lifting systems and is experienced in installations, and lift Inspections by ALI Certified Lift Inspectors.
In conclusion, Dr. Jean DellAmore, Stertil-Koni president noted, “One of the best ways to really understand the power and dynamics of Stertil-Koni is to experience our products first-hand. We are delighted Southwest Lift & Equipment could host this event and we thank the participants who attended.”
