STEVENSVILLE, MD, June 9, 2020 – Stertil-Koni, the recognized leader in heavy duty bus lifts and truck lifts across North America, today introduced its first portable air over hydraulic jack – ideal for servicing vehicles in the maintenance bay or on the road.
Weighing in at only 60 lbs., this lightweight, two-stage workhorse – Model SKB25-2 – has a lifting capacity of first stage, 25 metric tons, with a final stage of 10 metric tons. It is equally at home on the shop floor or on the road. The ultra-portable design incorporates a 21.6” handle that folds for easy transport.
That makes it ideal for mobile service applications.
“What’s more,” noted Carl Boyer, Stertil-Koni Shop Equipment Specialist, “this hydraulic jack allows technicians to enjoy total freedom and comfort virtually anywhere the job takes them, with 100% confidence, reliability, and safety.”
The ultra-portable unit incorporates an optional wall mounting bracket to secure it out of the way in a service truck or on the workshop wall. Adding to its utility as an ideal portable solution are several key, user-friendly, adaptable features:
- Top quality, long-lasting, durable chromium-plated piston
- Maximum height without extensions 12.5”
- Low 6.3” collapsed height
- Easy-to-use controls with dead-man safety switch
- Built-in overload valve for added safety
- 2” and 4” extensions included.

The Model SKB25-2 portable jack is the latest example of how Stertil-Koni delivers the very best in heavy duty lifting systems – and shop equipment -- to enable our customers to effectively, efficiently, and safely perform even the most demanding tasks.”
