DAF dealership cuts inspection times with mobile column lifts12 April 2016

DAF dealership Ford & Slater says it has been able to speed up PDI inspections at its Leicester depot, since installing a set of Stertil Koni’s wireless mobile column lifts.

The ST1085FWA lift is rated at 8,500kg, so each set of four columns offers a total lifting capacity of 34,000kg to ensure the safe handling of all types of truck and trailer. If more capacity is required, extra columns can be added.

Full height of 1,850mm can be reached in 94 seconds in a smooth movement, thanks to a microprocessor control combined with Stertil’s hydraulic synchronisation system.

Each mobile column has two long-life deep cycle batteries, delivering sufficient power for at least 30 lifting cycles.

Typically, the Leicester depot handles multiple vehicle types every day, ranging from 7.5-tonne rigids up to two- or three-axle tractors. The mobile lifts are saving time, as well as providing easier and safer accessibility underneath raised vehicles.
