Stertil-Koni describes its Envirolift as an ecologically intelligent lift that can help reduce the carbon footprint of any organization regularly utilizing heavy-duty lifting equipment. Ninety-eight percent of the materials used to create the Envirolift are recyclable, the company says, including its nylon, steel and deep-cycle marine batteries, which are known for being robust, energy-efficient and 100 percent recyclable.

The Envirolift is engineered to use the weight of the vehicle it has lifted to recharge its batteries with each lowering cycle; according to the company, this self-regeneration technology produces a 50 percent increase in the total battery operating life expectancy, approximating 50 cycles under a full load of about 72,000 pounds.

Stertil-Koni says the Envirolift also uses Panolin, a 100 percent biodegradable synthetic oil formulated for a longer service life than other oils; the lubricant exhibits additional aging characteristics, as well as a higher resistance to oxidation.
