Mobile Column Lifts:

Mobile Column Lifts from Stertil-Koni are indeed mobile — delivering maximum flexibility, productivity and safety in heavy duty lifting. Engineered to address virtually all lifting requirements, Stertil-Koni Mobile Columns can lift from 16,500 lbs. to 40,000 lbs. per column (depending on the model) and deliver the following unparalleled benefits:

  • Reliable hydraulic technology for smooth, efficient operation with low maintenance
  • High quality, high tensile DOMEX steel for maximum strength
  • Unique synchronization which starts at a height difference of just 9/16th of an inch
  • Fast lifting and lowering
  • Mechanical locking system that starts at just 5 inches and continues up the entire height of the lift every 1 3/8th inches


Mobile column lifts from Stertil-Koni are available in three categories. Learn more below:

Wireless Mobile Column Lifts: extremely safe because no external power source is required to operate, no interconnecting cables are needed, hence no risk of tripping — all with minimal set up time.

EARTHLIFT: the first “green” hydraulic mobile column lift, with columns made from 98% recyclable components and featuring an Active Energy Retrieval System.

Cabled mobile Column Lifts: Tap the best of Stertil-Koni’s hydraulic lifting technology (connect up to 28 mobile columns into a single lifting set with interconnecting cables) – all at attractive pricing.


DIAMOND LIFT is Stertil-Koni’s state-of-the-art high pressure telescopic piston lift – providing optimum flexibility, productivity, durability and environmental containment.  Available in a two- or three-piston configuration, with a total lifting capacity of 64,000 lbs. and 96,000 lbs respectively, product benefits include:

  • 32,000 lbs. capacity per piston
  • Electronically synchronized for maximum safety and convenience
  • Hard-chrome plated piston rods for maximum protection against corrosion, wear and debris
  • Mechanical locking system utilizes a hardened, nitro carburized locking rod for maximum protection
  • Easy system maintenance because all power units and control components are located above floor level
  • Low oil volume – only 4.5 gallons of hydraulic fluid required per piston and designed for use with bio-degradable hydraulic fluid
  • Aluminum trench covers with 13,600 lbs. drive over load
  • Simple to use, intuitive controls
  • Third-party testing and validation by ETL-Intertek to ensure compliance with ANSI/ALI ALCTV current edition


ECOLIFT is the industry’s first, U.S. patented, ultra-shallow, full-rise axle-engaging inground scissor lift.

Available in both a 2-scissor or 3-scissor configuration, total lifting capacity is 60,000 lbs. and 90,000 lbs. respectively – at 30,000 lbs. per scissor.

Benefits of ECOLIFT include:

  • High pressure, low volume hydraulics, with only 3.5 gallons per scissor
  • Ultra-shallow pit – only 34” — enables quick installation
  • Ideally designed for situations with bedrock, high ground water or other difficult soil conditions
  • Extra safe because mechanical locks are designed to allow the lift to park on the locks
  • Electronically synchronized for maximum safety and convenience
  • Easy maintenance and service as all power units and control components are located above floor level
  • ALI/ETL certified for added safety
  • Available in various travel ranges

Options include: detachable, wired remote control; adapters; adapter stands; bio degradable hydraulic fluid; automatic wheel base positioning; and special lift configurations.


SKYLIFT from Stertil-Koni is a superior, heavy duty platform lift that uniquely provides a clear floor concept for the user. It optimizes working space thanks to its vertical lifting design with no crossbeams or columns.  The following models are available:

  • Model #: SKY 200: Maximum rated capacity of 62,400 lbs.
  • Model #: SKY 250: Maximum rated capacity of 78,000 lbs.

Additional benefits include:

  • No overhang, no crossbeams, no base frame, and four independent legs; providing free access from all sides
  • Mechanical locking system, beginning at 3 5/8 inches above floor level
  • Runway lengths: available lengths 23’ to 110’ per configuration set up
  • With a special synchronization set and floor bridge section between the two lifts it is possible to use two SKYLIFTS as either two individual lifts or one single lift, which enables SKYLIFT to lift vehicle configurations of up to 100 feet in length and a weight of 156,000 lbs.
  • Easily movable
  • Automatic safeguard against overloading or uncontrolled descent
  • SKYLIFT can be either flush-mounted or surface mounted. Flush mounted recess is 15.7″
  • Lifting articulated vehicles can be accommodated through a modular approach by adding 4.12″ feet to either side of the lifting platform thereby extending runway by 8.25 feet. Therefore, with a 33 foot runway, actual runway length is 41 ¼ feet. Notice that regardless of runway length the number of legs is four. No need for extra legs!

4 Post Lift

The Stertil-Koni four post lift is one of a kind. There is no four-post, heavy duty drive-on lift like it due to the fact it has no cross beams fore or aft. It has totally open floor configuration east-west and north-south. Unlike other stationary platform lifts, this lift has adjustable runways for multi-wheel base vehicles.

Four-Post Features and Technical Characteristics:

  • Advanced State-of-the-Art Technology: Hydraulic system is electrically controlled using potentiometers to monitor vehicle weight displacement and ensuring smooth synchronization between four lifting points. Programmable lifting height, lighting and foot protection are provided.
  • Maximum Safety: ◦Combination locking pawl (solenoid activated) and metal ladders on carriage operate independently of drive mechanism and represent fail-safe design.

◦Hose burst valve protection prevents lift from rapid descent in case of hydraulic fluid loss

◦High quality DOMEX steel provides for long life.

  • Developed and tested for 50,000 lifting operations at maximum load
  • Very Low Drive-on Height: 27″ wide runways enjoy drive-on height of 8 5/8″ for ST4175 and 11″ for ST4250. This means that low ground clearance vehicles can easily access this lift.
  • Incredible Lifting Height: With 75″ of lifting height, even the tallest of mechanics can work under the vehicle and prevent back injuries
  • Adjustable Runways: Runways can be adjusted laterally with a minimum range of adjustment of 6 inches.
  • Flexible Positioning: Because there are no cross beams, the lift can be installed with a width compatible to the customer’s needs and in-line with space limitations found in the workshop.
  • Vertical Lifting: The Stertil-Koni series four-post lifts rise vertically (no overhang like a parallelogram) at an incredible fast rate of 72 seconds for the ST-4250.
  • Tandem Configurations: Unlike any other lift in the world, the Stertil-Koni four post lifts can be used in tandem, linking two lifts in a line. The user can operate the two lifts as a synchronized pair or operate both lifts independently. This is especially necessary when lifting articulated buses, trucks and semi-trailers. This makes these unique models an excellent choice for vehicles with an uneven weight distribution, for example, a truck and crane combination. Most tandem combinations are ALI/ETL certified.

  • Flush Mount or Surface Mount: All models can be installed either recessed or surface mount.
