Stertil-Koni USA Inc. introduced the ST 1085, its latest mobile column vehicle lift.

This new model, designed to deliver a combination of flexibility and productivity, features a lifting capacity of 18,500 lbs. per column and is equipped with extra-long adjustable pick-up forks of 14 inches — well suited to safely raise all types of vehicles, including those with super single tires, according to the company. In addition, the width between the lifting forks is adjustable so that vehicles with variable wheel diameters can be lifted safely and easily.

The ST 1085 also features a Multi Master System, equipped with a control box on each individual column. The system makes it possible to operate columns individually, in pairs or as a complete set with the touch of a single button. Moreover, all columns are interchangeable, so they can be used at multiple locations.

The ST 1085 only takes 94 seconds to reach its maximum lifting height of 73 inches, company officials said.

The new lift is available in four control system options, including a wireless option, delivering maximum convenience and access to the vehicle. It operates on 24-volt DC, requires no external power source to operate, communicates by ZigBee mesh protocol for high reliability and no cross channel interference, and is powered by standard deep-cycle batteries that typically last up to two weeks prior to recharging. That minimizes setup time, company officials said, because no interconnecting cables are required, and safety is enhanced, as the risk of operator tripping is eliminated. 
The ST 1085 is also available with:

•    Controls that permit operation of a maximum of 28 columns in a set with a  fully functioning control box on each column;
•    Battery controls, allowing operation of a maximum of eight columns in a set without a building power supply; and
•    EARTHLIFT, a wireless option and hydraulic green mobile column lift. Its columns are made with components that are 98% recyclable. The Active Energy Retrieval System allows operators to achieve 35% more lifting cycles at maximum lifting load. EARTHLIFT also uses a closed hydraulic system that contains biodegradable oil and 100% recyclable batteries.

Each Stertil-Koni mobile lifting column is equipped with synthetic wheels and a hydraulic pallet jack mechanism, which incorporates a patented gas spring, making the columns easy to relocate. As an option, the ST 1085 also is available with detachable transport pockets to lift and transport the mobile column lift quickly with a fork lift.

The ST 1085 is ANS/ALI-ALCTV certified.
