Two new adapter kits, tailored for Stertil-Koni’s inground scissor and piston lifts, can offer more efficient lifting by engaging the front and rear lifting points on vehicles.

Following a notable increase in the size of newer school buses, transit buses, and heavy-duty trucks, along with the requirements for larger axles to support them, Stertil-Koni recently engineered one adapter kit expressly manufactured for school buses and trucks and another suitable for transit buses. The supplier’s school bus and truck adapters are constructed to be wider and taller, while transit bus adapters are flatter and broader.  

The new adapters have been optimized for both new vehicles with the latest axles as well as older vehicles that have been on the road for some time, according to Stertil-Koni.

Each adapter pair has a capacity of up to 35,000 pounds, depending on the type of lift it is used with.
