Stertil-Koni says its Skylift half-scissor hydraulic vehicle lift incorporates two independent, modular lifting platforms to provide additional underchassis operator access, while its vertical lifting orientation saves working space.

The independent lift units can be repositioned easily to accommodate virtually any axle width, and Skylift’s ease of mobility makes it convenient and portable, according to the company; the lift can be installed in flush-mounted or surface-mounted configurations, enabling it to accommodate a wide variety of vehicles, axle widths and lift applications.

The Skylift is designed as a modular unit: Four legs (two under each runway) can handle a maximum length runway of up to 45 feet. The device also is built for multiple loading configurations, the company says; customers can load the lift with up to 77,000 pounds symmetrically and up to 55,000 pounds asymmetrically.

The Skylift’s floor-to-ramp height is 69 inches (1.75 m), allowing for adequate headroom, and each leg is equipped with an individual measuring device to facilitate smooth, level synchronization within 5/8 inches. The lift also offers independent hydraulic and mechanical locking systems and has 31 mechanical locking positions.

The company says Skylift is fully certified and meets all industry standards, including the ALI standard for security, safety and weight; it also is ALI/ETL-compliant. Installation is easy, according to Stertil-Koni; two technicians can install the lift in a day.
