Peoplesbus invests in Stertil lifts

Peoplesbus of Aintree in Liverpool has added a further set of four wireless 7.5 tonne mobile column lifts from Stertil-Koni following an initial set purchased in 2023.

According to Stertil, the ST1075FWA-4 lift set comprises four wireless mobile columns, each offering a lifting capacity of 7.5 tonnes, thereby providing an overall safe lifting capacity of 30 tonnes, 15 tonnes per axle.

Each column incorporates Stertil-Koni’s 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. The wireless columns can be used in any configuration around a vehicle, with a maximum of 32 individual columns that can be connected together.

The ebright Smart Control System has been developed to simplify operation by providing maximum visual information about every lifting operation.

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 lock 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 are said to provide optimum performance for at least a week on average before recharging is necessary. Also, battery life is prolonged because power is only used to raise a vehicle. Therefore, less time is spent recharging the lift which is carried out via a 230v single phase supply.
