Heavy duty vehicle lift leader Stertil-Koni introduced two new adapter kits tailored for its inground scissor and piston lifts — each engineered to facilitate more efficient lifting by engaging the front and rear lifting points on buses and trucks.

Driving Stertil-Koni’s engineering approach is a transformation in how heavy duty vehicles are now being built.

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

Even better, 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.

“The net result is to increase the versatility, safety, and performance of Stertil-Koni’s DIAMONDLIFT, a state-of-the-art high-pressure telescopic piston lift, and ECOLIFT, the original ultra-shallow, full-rise axle-engaging scissor lift,” notes Matthias Lennemann, Stertil-Koni heavy-duty inground lift sales manager. “Today’s trucks and buses coming off the production line have bigger and wider axles. In response, Stertil-Koni listened to our end-users and tailored these adapter kits to meet the newer requirements. Each kit contains various front and rear adapters and is included, as standard, with new inground lift purchases from Stertil-Koni. Customers simply choose which adapter kit best suits their fleet.”

Lennemann also added: “The adapters are all engineered to embrace the axles, frame or suspension on the vehicle securely.” Each adapter pair has a capacity of up to 35,000 lbs., depending on the type of lift with which it is used.

The kits are also available to current Stertil-Koni inground lift customers.

This announcement comes on the heels of Stertil-Koni’s introduction last September of its differential adapter for the DIAMONDLIFT, specifically engineered to safely and effectively lift vehicles by the rear differential. More recently, Stertil-Koni launched a series of multipurpose adapters for its highly acclaimed Mobile Column Lifts — again designed to bring wheels-free lifting to shops servicing and maintaining heavy-duty vehicles across North America.
