The Stertil Group provides customised and technically advanced lifting solutions for heavy-duty customers worldwide, as well as superior after-sales service from factory trained local distributors. These superior solutions are conceived, developed and implemented by a team of industry experts with years of field experience. Stertil-Koni is a worldwide leader for heavy duty vehicle lifts as a result of its quality people, in-house research/development and global focus.
The Stertil-Koni ECOLIFT is the industry’s first, patented, ultra-shallow, full-rise scissor in-ground lifting system. Manufactured in Streator, Illinois, USA, ECOLIFT is safe, reliable and durable.
The shallow ECOLIFT foundation has a depth of less than half of the total lifting height. The lift foundation does not require any lift components to be embedded in concrete, which minimises time and expense. Finally, this shallow foundation is the answer to situations with bedrock, high ground water or other difficult soil conditions.
Not only is the installation depth extremely low, the ECOLIFT arrives on site pre-assembled and tested. ECOLIFT is a drop-in/bolt-in design, which makes the installation a breeze. Additionally, the ECOLIFT is the only re-locatable in-ground lifting system in the world.
Utilising the Continuous Recess™ system, the ECOLIFT is designed to accommodate vehicles with extremely low ground clearances. The moveable lifting mechanism can recess below floor level anywhere within the range of travel.
The pit covers are made from anodised aluminium and are equipped with a skid resistant surface. The covers are capable of handling a wheel load of 6,000 kg as well as a point load of 3,400 kg on a 5 x 5 cm contact ares, as would occur, for example, with a support stand leg.
The covers are driven hydraulically with an inverted rack and pinion system, sliding on a corrosion- resistant, self-cleaning surface. An industry proven control system, with electronic synchronisation Utilising real-time feedback, ensures smooth and safe operation. As standard, the control system includes a provision to restrict the maximum lifting height. “The ECOLIFT can be supplied in 2- and 3-lifting unit versions. The available ranges of horizontal travel for ECOLIFT moveable lifting units are 3,000, 4,000 and 5,200 mm. This flexibility allows service of vehicles including articulated buses, fire and rescue vehicles as well as multiple-axle trucks.”
The ECOLIFT is designed with a robust mechanical locking system, independent of the hydraulic cylinder. The mechanical locking system is active throughout the lifting range. When lowered into the locks, the vehicle is fully supported, with no pressure remaining in the hydraulic system.
The unique lifting scissors are fabricated from 5 cm thick, high strength steel, providing an unparalleled level of stability and safety.
ECOLIFT utilises high pressure, low volume cylinders requiring only 13 litres of hydraulic fluid each, which reduces the carbon foot print of this revolutionary product.
Ready for the future
With its high lifting capacity, movable front lifting mechanism in a continuous recess and broad range of adapters, the ECOLIFT is suitable for a diverse vehicle fleet. Additionally, since the ECOLIFT is drop-in/bolt-in, it is easily relocated.
-Detachable, Wired Remote Control: Full function remote control, with emergency stop, operates in addition to standard controls on the console and is fully approved for use on the workshop floor. The result: convenient and safe positioning of the lift to the vehicle.
-Adapters: Standard selection included. Special adapters are available.
-Adapter stand: For safe and easy storage of adaptors and cover plates.
-Biodegradable hydraulic fluid
-Automatic wheel base positioning: The ECOLIFT can be equipped with a system that stores wheel base positions for easier lift set up. The user friendly LCD screen stores up to 16 positions, which in turn allows precise relocation of the moveable lifting unit with the touch of a button, significantly reducing setup time.
-Special lift configurations are available.
