With its acquisition of Fleet America Service Technology, Stertil-Koni has added a shallow-pit designed heavy-duty scissors lift to its product line. An alternative to piston lifts, the ECO Lift is an axle-engaging multi-scissors lift that emerges from a shallow pit. The company says the ECO Lift is machined with tolerances to one thousandth of one inch and is ANSI/ALI ALCTV-2006 certified.

The lift is designed to allow technicians to have easy access to wheel and brake assemblies and comes with a variety of adapters that will accommodate any axle configuration, according to the company; the lift also features a safety locking mechanism to help prevent unprompted lift descent. Its collapsible design makes it small enough to require only a 34-inch-deep pit instead of one that is six to nine feet deep for traditional axle-engaging piston-style lifts, Stertil-Koni says. The ECO Lift’s ultra-shallow pit requirements and bolt-in design allow for easy installation, according to the company, and it also can be removed and reinstalled with ease.

In addition to being compact (25 inches tall, 40 inches wide and 22 inches front to back, when collapsed) the ECO Lift is powerful, with 30,000 pounds of lifting capacity per unit, Stertil-Koni says; multiple lift configurations accommodating 60,000 pounds and 90,000 pounds also are available. The ECO Lift, which can be controlled by a remote pendant, can operate on only seven gallons of oil as opposed to traditional hydraulic piston-style lifts that use between 56 and 90 gallons, according to the company.
