Earthlift Heavy Duty Wireless Truck & Bus Column Lift (8.5 or 10 tonne)


The superior solution for saving energy

Earthlift -emptyThe Stertil-Koni EARTHLIFT column lift uses the patented Active Energy Retrieval System, providing 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!

Maximum flexibility for different vehicles
  • elift-dumpTotal lifting capacity is variable by linking multiple lifting columns
  • Maximum of 32 columns can be linked in a single configuration
  • Unique synchronisation system for a smooth lifting and lowering cycle, even in the event of an extremely uneven load distribution
  • Lifting and lowering speeds can be continuously adjusted
  • Lifting forks can be adjusted to the desired width, so without wheel adapters, for nearly all wheel diameters
