Pa. agency adds Stertil-Koni lifts

Posted on July 22, 2014

The Allentown, Pa.-based Lehigh and Northampton Transportation Authority (LANta) selected and installed a targeted range of Stertil-Koni’s in-ground scissor lifts, platform lifts and wireless mobile column lifts for use in LANta’s recently completed, state-of-the-art, bus maintenance facility.

The modern, bright, 31,000 square-foot LANta service center, named the Armando V. Greco Maintenance Facility, represents a $12 million construction project that was five years in the planning and required 18 months to complete. It replaces an older garage, dating back to 1953 and is approximately three times the size of its predecessor.

The facility now serves LANta’s fleet of 83 buses, including 24 new hybrid buses — each of which delivers fuel savings in excess of 40% over older, diesel models.

Heaving duty lifting systems from Stertil-Koni installed at LANta include:

  • Ecolift 60: a two-scissor configuration of the company’s U.S. patented original ultra-shallow, full-rise in-ground, axle engaging vehicle lift. This model has a lifting capacity of 60,000 lbs. and combines high pressure, low volume hydraulics while requiring a mere 3.5 gallons of fluid per scissor, and has proved ideal for servicing transit buses and other heavy-duty vehicles with low clearance.
  • Skylift: a superior, heavy duty platform lift that uniquely combines a clear floor concept while optimizing working space due to its vertical lifting design with no crossbeams or columns.
  • Wireless Mobile Column Lifts: a flexible, truly mobile heavy duty lifting system that utilizes reliable hydraulic technology for smooth, efficient operation with low maintenance combined with rapid lifting and lowering.
