Stagecoach invests in a further set of lifts at its Sunderland depot

09/02/24 | 2024

Stagecoach Bus has continued its 18-year association with Stertil-Koni vehicle lifting equipment by investing in a further set of 4 x 7.5t wireless mobile column lifts at its Wheatsheaf depot in Sunderland, Tyne & Wear.


The ST1075FWA lifts comprise of a set of four wireless mobile columns, each offering a lifting capacity of 7.5 tonnes thereby providing an overall safe lifting capacity of 30 tonnes. Each column incorporates Stertil-Koni’s revolutionary ebright Smart Control System which allows 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. 

For added safety and performance, the ebright Smart Control System also shows how many columns in the set are being used plus the battery status of each column. Safety is further enhanced by an independent mechanical locking system, incorporated into each column, which allows technicians to securely “park” the lift to prevent a vehicle from being inadvertently lowered.

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. Also, 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 – when needed, charging of the on-board batteries is simply carried out by connecting a 230v single phase supply via the supplied charging cables. Importantly, with no cables on the workshop floor, the risk of tripping is removed, providing valuable health and safety benefits
