TRUCK AND AGRICULTURAL REPAIR SPECIALISTS S&J WEBSTER OF SPRING FARM, CHELLASTON, DERBY HAVE RECENTLY INSTALLED A STERTIL-KONI 35 TONNE CAPACITY SKYLIFT TO SUPPORT A RANGE OF WORKSHOP OPERATIONS.
The company specified a top-of-the-range 35 tonne capacity, surface-mounted heavy duty SKYLIFT with twin 9m platforms, model SKY350-9 which, due to its compact design and narrow width, occupies minimal floor area thereby ensuring maximum use of valuable workshop space.
The Skylift simplifies a wide range of duties including servicing, maintenance, repairs and the checking of wheel alignments. Versatility is assured by the lift’s nine metre long platforms which offer an extremely low drive-on height of just 350mm and a generous lifting space of 1.75 metres. Also, with no base frame, no cross beams and only a lifting leg at each end of the platform, the vertical-lifting Skylift provides engineers with unobstructed access to raised vehicles from all sides.
In common with all Stertil Koni products, safety is paramount and the SKY350-9 incorporates an independent mechanical locking system which is always active. Each leg also has an individual measuring device, ensuring smooth and level synchronisation to within 15mm.
Stertil Koni’s revolutionary ebright Smart Control System allows operation of the Skylift from a lockable control box situated alongside the lift. Precise raising and lowering of vehicles is controlled by the patented eBright system which features a full colour touch-screen panel interface.
