Stertil Koni has introduced another model into its fixed 4-post lift range. The new ST4120 replaces the ST4100 and offers an additional two tonnes of lifting capacity over its predecessor. It has been specifically developed to be user-friendly, competitive on price and provide unrivalled flexibility to the user.
The ST4120's electro-hydraulic lifting system removes the need for cables or pulleys and can lift up to 12 tonnes, giving it ample strength to cope with most medium-sized commercial and industrial vehicles. Various platform lengths are available - 4.5m, 6.2m and 8m - and the space between the platforms is adjustable from 800mm up to 1650mm.
A single hydraulic unit powers the four-cylinder ST4120; each column is identical, which means the control box can be placed on any column. The maximum lifting height of 1.88m is reached in an impressive 90 seconds and the micro-processor controlled synchronisation system means smooth lifting and lowering of vehicles, even where there is uneven load distribution. Maximum safety features are standard on Stertil lifts: automatic overload protection, automatic stop at the highest position and an emergency switch on every column sits alongside a low-voltage control cabinet, independent mechanical locking system and dead man's operation to ensure that operator safety is guaranteed.
"At Stertil we don't stand still," says Tony Edge of Stertil Koni. "We are constantly developing and improving our products and the new ST4120 is a perfect example of this process. Its increased strength, added to its adjustable platforms, makes it a really flexible piece of equipment which allows the user to service a wide variety of vehicles including lorries, buses, industrial plant and fork lift trucks."
Stertil Koni specialises in the design, manufacture, installation and maintenance of hydraulic vehicle lifts and was the first lifting system manufacturer to be awarded ISO 9001. The company uses its own factory-trained engineers and ensures parts are kept in stock for at least 25 years after production.
