Vehicle maintenance: Stertil-Koni, a provider of heavy duty vehicle lifts -- notably bus lifts, truck lifts and U.S. Military vehicle lifts -- announced that adjustable forks now come standard on the recently introduced ST 1085 Mobile Column Lifts, in both standard and wide fork models. Previously, fixed forks were standard and adjustable was an option.

With this customer-focused enhancement, Stertil-Koni becomes the first lift manufacturer to make adjustable forks standard on wide-fork mobile column lifts, adding one more innovation to the company's industry-leading line of high-performance, low-maintenance and safety-engineered mobile column vehicle lifts.

The ST 1085 features a lifting capacity of 18,500 lbs. per column. It also features the Multi Master System, equipped with a control box on each individual column. In that way, lifting columns can be operated individually, in pairs or a complete set with the touch of a single button. What¹s more, all columns are interchangeable, so they can be used at multiple locations.

Using reliable hydraulic technology, the ST 1085 only takes 94 seconds to reach its maximum lifting height of 73 inches ­ making it one of the fastest mobile lifting columns in the world.

Noted Peter Bowers, Technical Sales Support Manager for Stertil-Koni USA, "Many of our customers service diverse fleets, and the ST 1085 enables them to safely and efficiently raise a wide range of vehicles, from large mining vehicles, school buses and motor coaches, all the way down to para-transit buses and pickup trucks.”

Adjusting the extra- long, 14-inch pick-up forks is quick and easy, and doesn't require any lifting or heavy pushing. The fork can be readily shifted to accommodate the diameter of virtually any size tire that can raised with this lift.

Added Bowers, “The adjustable fork also eliminates the need to keep reduction sleeves in the shop, which can clutter up workspaces and pose a tripping hazard.”

Stertil-Koni President Dr. Jean DellAmore, concluded, ³The new ST 1085 leverages our tremendous company expertise in reliable hydraulic technology, which ensures efficient and smooth lifting with low maintenance ­ every time.²
