Ecolift re-locatable in-ground lifting system for truck & bus

The Stertil-Koni Ecolift is the industry’s first patented, ultra-shallow, full-rise in-ground lifting system – a superior, flexible solution with a lifting capacity of 13.5 tonne per scissor. 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.

Flexibility where it countsecolift-empty

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.

Ultra-Shallow Construction

The shallow pit construction has a depth of just 1/2 of the lifting height. With an installation depth of just 860mm, the ECOLIFT is the answer to situations with bedrock, water table or unstable soil conditions. Additionally, since the ECOLIFT is drop-in/bolt-in, it is easily relocated.

Low Ground Clearance

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 so there is no risk of damaging the vehicle during positioning of the movable carriage and superstructure underneath the vehicle.

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 areas, as would occur, for example, with a support stand leg.


Innovative Design

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 even with unevenly loaded vehicles.

The ECOLIFT uses high pressure, low volume cylinders requiring only 13 litres of hydraulic fluid each, which reduces the carbon foot print of this revolutionary product.

Other features include programmable lifting height and the audible warning.
