Twin Piston Jacking Beams from Stertil-Koni Enable Platform SKYLIFT to Deliver Wheels-Free Lifting
Lifting Pistons Operate Individually or in Tandem with Capacity up to 44,000 lbs.
Stevensville, MD, September 8, 2021 - For vehicle maintenance shops looking for even more lifting power from the Stertil-Koni SKYLIFT – a superior, true vertical-rise platform lift with a capacity up to 156,000 lbs. – Jacking Beams are increasingly providing the solution.
Engineered by heavy duty vehicle lift leader Stertil-Koni, these purpose-built, air-driven hydraulic accessories for SKYLIFT utilize twin lifting pistons with integrated mechanical locks to deliver wheels-free access for tire and break repairs on virtually any vehicle.
“In that way,” noted Peter Bowers, Technical Sales Support Manager at Stertil-Koni, “Jacking Beams transform the SKYLIFT -- which is widely recognized for facilitating fast-paced, drive-on, drive-off preventative maintenance -- into a multi-dimensional lifting system.”
“What’s more”, continued Bowers, “both pistons on the Jacking Beam can be operated independently – ideal for lifting a single wheel – or both wheels in tandem. For added convenience and safety, Stertil-Koni Jacking Beams boast remote control operation, hold-to-run controls, overload protection, and each piston is equipped with a reliable gravity-engaged mechanical locking system.”
The Jacking Beams also feature a simple, modern design with a control panel at an optimally ergonomic working height. Lifting capacities, depending on model, range from 17,600 lbs. to 44,000 lbs.
Concluded Stertil-Koni President, Dr. Jean DellAmore, “The SKYLIFT Jacking Beam exemplifies Stertil-Koni’s commitment to providing our customers with the ultimate in master-designed, high-performance lifting systems that make heavy duty vehicle repair and servicing ever more safe, efficient and productive.”
