Stertil Koni four-post lifts support UK emergency services 15 September 2021

Staffordshire Fire and Rescue Service specified a total of nine Stertil Koni hydraulic vehicle lifts which included two ST4250 models.

Supplied with 11.5m-long platforms, these 25t-capacity lifts feature a unique design that eliminates the need for crossbeams, ensuring unobstructed access for operatives and tools to both vehicles and the lift itself. This also means that users can choose the ideal working width to set up, depending on the type of vehicles to be serviced. The Stertil Koni ST4250 offers a maximum lift height of 1.9m which is achieved in 72 seconds, making it one of the fastest heavy-duty vehicle lifts in the world.

Controlling the lift is made easy and safe for the user from the well-positioned control panel that can be used to programme a range of functions including lifting heights. Also, a self-diagnostic programme provides information about the system status at all times. The ST4250 is supplied with a lighting kit and air-operated jacking beams for wheel-free maintenance.

In addition, Stertil Koni’s Compact range of 4-post lifts includes models ST4055 and ST4070 which offer respective capacities of 5.5 and 7 tonnes. All models feature a low drive-on height of 160mm.

The Welsh Ambulance Services NHS Trust now relies on an installation of seven ST4070 4-post lifts to ensure safe and reliable operation during workshop activities on its mixed fleet of over 500 emergency vehicles and other ambulances used for the transportation of non-emergency patients. In order to cope with the regular maintenance and servicing of the fleet, which includes the latest Mercedes Sprinter box van ambulances, the Trust’s existing vehicle lifts had to be replaced. After researching the equipment that suited its needs, the Trust put the project out to tender and Stertil Koni was awarded the contract.

Avon & Somerset Police is another ‘blue light’ service to opt for the 7 tonne capacity ST4070 4-post lift. Installed within a new workshop at Radstock in Somerset, the lift is used to simplify a range of activities including vehicle maintenance, repair and servicing.
