Walton Summit Trucks invests in Stertil Koni wireless column lifts 25 May 2021

Stertil Koni has supplied two sets of heavy-duty wireless mobile column lifts to Walton Summit Trucks for accessibility under vehicles and to make best use of workshop space during servicing and repair operations.

Based in Preston, Walton Summit Trucks supplies a range of IVECO, Isuzu and Fiat Professional vehicles. offering specifications to meet individual customer requirements.

The two sets of ST1075FWA vehicle lifts supplied by Stertil Koni means that a total of eight columns are used in Walton Summit Trucks’ workshop. In practice, this provides the flexibility to use the columns in groups of four, six or eight depending on the size and weight of vehicles to be lifted. Each lifting column was rated at 7.5 tonnes.

These lifts incorporate Stertil Koni’s ebright smart control system, which allows workshop staff to operate the lifts from any column in the set.

“The new wireless Stertil Koni column lifts are vital to our operation, and we use them around the clock. We use the lifts for all major repairs and overhauls on a range of vehicles including 3.5 tonne vans, 44 tonne tractor units, 32 tonne 4-axle vehicles and, on occasions, semi-trailers,” says Patrick Oleary, service manager. “Also, apart from their space-saving advantages, the most important feature is the safety element. I’m glad that the days of three-phase cables dragging around the workshop have long gone!”
