After having had a previous positive experience of Stertil Koni lifting equipment, CTV Commercial Body Repairs Ltd of East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire, Scotland have recently taken delivery of a set of six Stertil Koni ST1075FSA mobile column lifts. Each cable-connected lift in the set provides a safe lifting capacity of 7.5 tonnes so, when used as a set of four, the combined capacity of the Stertil Koni lifts is 30 tonnes and 45 tonnes for all six.
Importantly, each column features Stertil Koni’s revolutionary ebright Smart Control System which allows workshop technicians to operate the columns individually, in pairs or in any other grouping from any column in the set. Positioning of the columns is also flexible, enabling them to be used in any configuration around a vehicle. The ST1075FSA provides a maximum lifting height of 1.85 metres which is reached in just 75 seconds thereby making it one of the fastest commercial vehicle lifts available.
Incorporating full-colour touch screen consoles, the ebright Smart Control System has been designed and developed to simplify operation by providing maximum visual information about every lifting operation - all at the fingertips of the workshop technicians. For added safety and performance, the ebright Smart Control System also shows how many columns in the set are being used.
All columns incorporate Stertil’s maintenance-free, synthetic runner wheel system, which is self-lubricating, and the system is covered by a lifetime guarantee. An integral advanced hydraulic lifting system incorporates a microprocessor-controlled synchronisation feature to ensure safe, smooth and precise movement at all times. Safety is further enhanced by an independent mechanical locking system spaced at 35mm intervals in each column, which allows technicians to securely “park” the lift to prevent a vehicle from being inadvertently lowered.
