Stagecoach invests in Stertil lifts 23 February 2024

Stagecoach Steril Koni lifts

Stagecoach has invested in a further set of Stertil Koni 4 x 7.5 tonne wireless column lifts at its Wheatsheaf depot in Sunderland, Tyne & Wear.

The ST1075FWA lifts comprise a set of four wireless mobile columns, each offering a lifting capacity of 7.5 tonnes, thereby providing an overall safe lifting capacity of 30 tonnes. 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. Positioning of the wireless columns is also flexible, enabling them to be used in any configuration around a vehicle.

The ebright Smart Control System is expected to simplify operation by providing maximum visual information about every lifting operation.

For added safety, 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 park 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. The battery life is prolonged because power is only used to raise a vehicle, meaning less time is spent recharging the lift. When needed, the charging of the on-board batteries is carried out by connecting a 230v single phase supply via the supplied charging cables. With no cables on the workshop floor, the risk of tripping is removed.
