Stertil-Koni debuts green lift at Expo

Posted on October 16, 2008

[IMAGE]StertilKoniEnviroLift01Full.jpg[/IMAGE] Stertil-Koni, provider of heavy-duty vehicle lifts, introduced The Envirolift, a 98 percent recyclable, self-regenerating lift at APTA EXPO 2008.

Ninety-eight percent of the materials used to create the Envirolift are recyclable, including the nylon, steel and, most notably, the batteries. The batteries used, also known as deep-cycle marine batteries, are robust, energy-efficient and 100 percent recyclable.

In a departure from traditional heavy-duty lift designs, the Envirolift is engineered to use the weight of the vehicle it has lifted to recharge its batteries with each lowering cycle. The lift’s unique self-regeneration technology, resembling that used in today’s advanced hybrid vehicles, has led to a 50 percent increase in the total battery operating life.

The Envirolift is the third in Stertil-Koni’s earth-friendly line of lifts. The Eco Lift and the Skylift were introduced earlier this year.

The Envirolift is expected to be in full production no later than the first quarter of 2009.
