Malcolm Group washes up with Stertil Koni Skylift 09 August 2016

Logistics, construction and maintenance services specialist Malcolm Group is reporting that its 35-tonne Stertil Koni Skylift has improved vehicle underside access and efficiency during chassis washing operations.

The Skylift was installed at an outdoor chassis wash bay at Malcolm Logistics’ depot at Burnbrae Road, in Linwood.

Robert Deans, Malcolm Logistics’ fleet engineer, explains that the galvanised lift (model SKY350-14.5WB) was recessed into the wash bay floor so that vehicles can be driven onto its 14.5 metre parallel platforms.

Cleaning using a high-pressure washer lance is simplified, he says, because of the Skylift’s cross beam- and post-free design, which enables unrestricted access to the underside of raised vehicles.

“When deciding upon a lift to support our purpose-built chassis wash bay, we received a number of positive reports from existing users about the reliability of Stertil Koni lifts,” says Deans.

“The Skylift has been welcomed by our chassis wash bay operatives who benefit from clear access to raised vehicles in a safe and controlled manner.”

Used on a daily basis, the Skylift is now being used to help maintain Malcolm’s vehicle fleet, which includes tractors and trailers, rigid and curtainsided trucks, tugs and construction vehicles.
