A1 Coaches Order New Mobile Column Lifts From Stertil-Koni

22/04/24 | 2024

A1 Coaches Ltd. in Fife, Scotland, recently purchased two new sets of mobile column lifts for their workshop upgrade.

The transport company provides services to the East Coast of Fife and the surrounding areas, including Edinburgh and Dundee, with a fleet of around 65 vehicles. Their fleet ranges from 8-seat minibuses to 72-seat double-decker coaches, catering to various needs such as weddings, sporting events, airport transfers, day tours, and corporate events. 
The company previously acquired 2 sets of ST1075FWA wireless mobile column lifts from Stertil-Koni six years ago and were delighted with their performance and reliability. They had no hesitation in ordering 2 new sets, each comprising of 4 mobile columns. To complement the lifting facilities offered by the column lifts, eight tall axle stands were also ordered.   

Mobile column lift for coaches and buses

Each mobile column lift offers a lifting capacity of 7.5 tonnes, providing an overall safe lifting capacity of 30 tonnes per set. The mobile columns incorporate Stertil Koni’s revolutionary ebright Smart Control System, allowing workshop engineers to operate the columns individually, in pairs, or in any other combination from any column in the set. Positioning of the wireless columns is also totally flexible, enabling them to be used in any configuration around a vehicle.  
Featuring 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 engineers.  
The Stertil Koni ST1075FWA heavy-duty lift is powered by long-life deep cycle batteries which provide optimum performance for at least a week on average before recharging is necessary. Additionally, battery life is prolonged due to the fact that, unlike a screw-lift, power is only used to raise a vehicle therefore less time is spent recharging the lift. Charging is carried out by plugging each individual lift into a 230v single phase supply. Importantly, with no cables on the workshop floor, the risk of tripping is removed, providing valuable health and safety benefits. 
Supplied complete with adjustable width forks, the Stertil-Koni ST1075FWA easily meets the challenge of lifting vehicles with differing tyre widths to ensure maximum versatility.
