Freedom of Movement

No overhang, no crossbeams, no base frame and four independent support legs; providing optimal working space for the mechanic in and around the lift and leaving more workspace over. 

The Stertil-Koni platform lift has an innovative Y-shaped construction which makes it both robust and at the same time stream-lined for optimum space-saving. The clever patented design means that the supporting base plates effectively divert the forces and this with a lightweight construction.

Automatic Synchronization

All SKYLIFT platform lifts have an individual measuring system. As a result, the synchronization of the lift in continuously monitored and minor corrections made where necessary. The reliable and robust hydraulic lifting system requires virtually no maintenace. 

Safe Workspace

The SKYLIFT has enough head space to work comfortably underneath the lift with a generous vehicle lifting height of 69". Additionally, there is a programmable height for every installation. The SKYLIFT flush-mounted version is available recess cover plates which automatically raise with the lift to fill the recesses - no gaps are left on the floor. The clear floor space and overhead height makes your mechanic's job safer, faster, and gets your vehicle off the lift and back on the road.

Easy & Quick Installation

The SKYLIFT Surface Mount requires only 16 installation anchors in your floor. You can keep your workshop open while installing a new SKYLIFT, further maximizing your shop's productivity.
