Doosan Industrial Vehicle UK invests in Stertil-Koni vehicle lifts

07/03/24 | 2024

Korean forklift truck manufacturer Doosan Industrial Vehicle UK has invested in a pair of Stertil-Koni ST1075FSA cabled mobile column lifts, complete with forklift adaptors, for use in its site at Brackmills Industrial Estate, Northampton. They were looking for a solution to lift a variety of 3 and 4 wheeled forklift trucks for their pre-delivery inspection and rectification line.


Each cable-connected ST1075FSA lift in the set provides a safe lifting capacity of 7.5 tonnes so, when used as a pair, the combined capacity of the Stertil Koni lifts is 15 tonnes. The lifts are mobile and they take up a small amount of space so can be used in any flat area of the workshop without being too intrusive. 

What makes these different from the standard mobile column lifts supplied by Stertil-Koni to the bus & truck sectors are the additional ramps and in-fill supporting plates that allow 3 and 4-wheel forklift trucks to be raised safely and securely.

The new columns feature Stertil Koni’s revolutionary ebright Smart Control System which allows workshop technicians to operate the columns individually and in pairs. 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. 

All columns incorporate Stertil’s maintenance-free, synthetic runner wheel system, which is self-lubricating. 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.
