Stertil-Koni announced Oct. 15 it has introduced a new generation of its best-selling, “green” hydraulic mobile column lift, EarthLift, now with a lifting capacity of 18,500 lbs. per column.
EarthLift has been recognized as the industry’s first hydraulic “green” mobile column lift and is designed with both performance and the environment in mind. Its columns are made with components that are 98 percent recyclable and the active energy retrieval system (AERS) allows operators to achieve 35 percent more lifting cycles at maximum lifting load.
Noted Stertil-Koni President Jean DellAmore, “This means you can average up to 45 or 50 lifting cycles on a standard-sized transit bus without recharging. What’s more, the on-screen display highlights the AERS system, enabling the operator to see savings in real-time.”
EarthLift is equipped with extra-long adjustable pick-up forks of 14 inches. In addition, the width between the lifting forks is adjustable, so that vehicles with variable wheel diameters can be lifted safely and easily.
It also features a Multi Master System, equipped with a control box on each individual column. In that way, lifting columns can be operated individually, in pairs or a complete set with the touch of a single button. What’s more, all columns are interchangeable, so they can be used at multiple locations.
Concluded DellAmore, “The EarthLift is indeed ‘mobile.’ Thanks to the synthetic wheels and a hydraulic pallet jack mechanism, which incorporates a patented gas spring, the columns are easy to relocate. Plus, for added safety, the EarthLift is ANSI/ALI-ALCTV 2011 certified.”
