Mobile column lifts improve fleet maintenance

13 April 2017

Stertil Koni, the manufacturer of heavy duty commercial vehicle lifting equipment, has supplied a set of mobile column lifts to improve maintenance duties on a fleet of refuse collection vehicles operated by Euro Municipal.

Euro Municipal’s workshop engineers are frequently required to repair and service tri-axle refuse collection vehicles so the company opted to specify a set of six Stertil Koni ST1075FSA lifts. Each lift is rated at 7.5 tonnes which provides a combined lifting capacity of 45 tonnes to ensure complete safety when dealing with the largest vehicles in the fleet. 

Each of the ST1075FSA electro-hydraulic mobile column lifts features a superior control box mounted on each of the columns. This provides workshop engineers with the ability to operate the lifts individually, in pairs or all six simultaneously from any column in the set. Providing a maximum lifting height of 185mm in just 75 seconds, this model is claimed to be one of the world’s fastest workshop vehicle lifts. In addition, the advanced hydraulic lifting system incorporates a microprocessor-controlled synchronisation feature to ensure smooth and precise movement at all times.
