Features on Latest Heavy Duty Vehicles and Accessories
Hoffman Services Inc products by Stertil-Koni are highly regarded in the heavy duty lift industry. As a result they are often featured in articles and magazines online. Here are a few of the most recent posts.
BUSRIDE – Not only the standard products but also the new technologies which are being adopted at a high rate. The Stertil-Koni SKYLIFT wash bay platform lift was recently featured in the recent edition of BusRide magazine:
“According to a recent overview of operations in heavy duty vehicle maintenance facilities conducted by Stertil-Koni – a recognized leader in the hydraulic bus lift and truck lift industry – new technologies are increasingly being adopted to address harsh winter conditions that appear to be gaining in severity over the past decade. One example is the Stertil-Koni SKYLIFT Wash Bay platform lift – which is a water-resistant, inground heavy duty vehicle lifting system. It is ideally adapted for low-clearance vehicles, provides technicians with easy drive-on/drive-off capabilities and delivers complete access from all sides of the vehicle. It also is engineered to deliver a safe, efficient way to thoroughly clean the chassis and undercarriage of large commercial vehicles. When it comes to installation, the lift’s modular design allows for flush mounted or surface mounted models, depending on the facility.
And, unlike parallelogram lifts, these platform lifts have a true vertical rise, maximizing available floor space. The Wash Bay is engineered for use outside or in a steam-cleaning bay. Notable Wash Bay features include special hot dip steel coating with galvanized steel platforms; three-layer mono-pox coated lift supports; water-resistant, lockable unit to protect its electronic controls; and capacities of 62,400 pounds and 78,000 pounds with platform lengths from 23 feet up to 48 feet. The SKYLIFT Wash Bay model comes standard with a mechanical locking system and automatic safeguards against overloading or uncontrolled descent.”
