WG Tanker Group select Stertil-Koni for new trailer lifts

09/05/24 | 2024

WG Tanker Group recently made an important investment by acquiring three sets of Stertil-Koni's wireless mobile column lifts.  

The Derbyshire-based company, with a fleet of over 300 vehicles, specialises in offering a wide range of vessel and tanker repair and maintenance services across the UK and Europe. 
During a recent workshop redevelopment, the company chose to invest in the ST1075FWA mobile column lift along with the Stertil-Koni A-Frame trailer beam adaptor
The adaptor works by seamlessly attaching to the lifting points of the column lift, with the trailer’s kingpin securely fastening to its beam, allowing the trailer to be lifted in a stable and balanced position. Moreover, the removable adaptor adds versatility to the workshop, allowing mobile columns to lift standard vehicles when the accessory is detached.

Each mobile column lift offers a lifting capacity of 7.5 tonnes. When combined with the 7.2 tonnes capacity of the adaptor, this results in an overall safe lifting capacity of 22.2 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. 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. 
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.
