These superior solutions are conceived, developed and implemented by a team of professional specialists with unique expertise. Thanks to the quality of its people, its entirely in-house production and its international organisation, Stertil-Koni is the world’s number one in the field of heavy duty mobile column lifts.
The superior solution for saving
Stertil-Koni EARTHLIFT column lift, uses the patented Active Energy Retrieval System. This provides you with an ecological, mobile wireless lifting solution for all of your heavy duty lifting requirements. Which other lift in the industry can achieve up to 50 lifting cycles without battery charging? You get optimum productivity in the workshop. No more expensive downtime because of battery charging!
The principle of the Active Energy Retrieval System is as brilliant as it is simple: to use the energy generated by the raised vehicle as it comes back down. In other words: regain the gravitational energy!
The ‘green’ standard in lifting technology
The EARTHLIFT is the most environmentally-friendly wireless mobile column lift in the world, setting the ‘green standard’ in the international heavy duty lifting industry.
The EARTHLIFT allows workshops worldwide to combine socially responsible business practices, with the highest possible level of ease of operation and efficiency.

Simple recharging with 230V
Although recharging is less frequent with the EARTHLIFT, each column is fitted with two deep cycle marine batteries which can simply be recharged with a 230V energy source.
The patented synthetic runner wheel system is self-lubricating and therefore does not require any maintenance. Stertil-Koni offers a lifetime guarantee on this system.
