Stertil-Koni, Stevensville, Md., announced the release of the Skylift half-scissor hydraulic vehicle lift.

The half-scissor lift has undergone a 25,000-cycle testing program and is fully certified, meeting all industry standards, including the ALI standard for security, safety and weight. It is also ALI/ETL compliant.

Two independent, modular lifting platforms provide complete under-chassis operator access, while its vertical lifting orientation saves working space. The independent lift units can be easily repositioned to accommodate virtually any axle width. Skylift can be installed in flush-mounted or surface-mounted configurations.

The Skylift is designed as a modular unit. Four legs (two under each runway) can handle a maximum length runway of up to 45 feet. The lift is built for multiple loading configurations. Customers can load the lift with up to 77,000 pounds symmetrically and up to 55,000 pounds asymmetrically.

The Skylift line features 69 inches (or 1.75m) floor-to-ramp height, and each leg is equipped with an individual measuring device, which ensures smooth and level synchronization within 5/8 inches. It also offers independent hydraulic and mechanical locking systems giving lift operators almost 30 percent more security, according to the company.
