STEVENSVILLE, Md. — Stertil-Koni’s Continuous Recess system is now available on the company's in-ground telescopic piston Diamond Lift.

The Continuous Recess system was originally designed for Stertil-Koni’s in-ground, full-rise scissor Ecolift. According to the company, the system helps save time and boosts safety and convenience for maintenance technicians.

With the Diamond Lift, the Continuous Recess unit allows the bolster to recess flush to the floor anywhere in the horizontal range of piston travel. The bolsters remain completely flush with the floor, which facilitates lift setup, minimizes the possibility of hitting the lift with the vehicle, and reduces tripping hazards, according to Stertil-Koni.

“The Continuous Recess moveable lifting unit in the Diamond Lift is an industry first for piston-style lifts,” said Jean DellAmore, president of Stertil-Koni. “This innovative engineering enhances the Diamond Lift — popular because of its optimum flexibility, productivity, durability, and environmental containment.”

The Continuous Recess system’s flat pit covers are made from anodized aluminum and are equipped with a skid-resistant surface. The system provides full drive-over capacity of 13,500 pounds.

The Diamond Lift has a lifting capacity of up to 35,000 pounds per piston, or a total of 105,000 pounds in the three-piston configuration. It is available in two versions: “cassette” and “frame.” The lift is designed to accommodate vehicles with extremely low ground clearances.
