STEVENSVILLE MD — To dramatically present the safety and performance delivered by an industry first in inground piston lifts in North America—a technology known as “Continuous Recess”—Stertil-Koni, the leader in heavy duty vehicle lifts, recently filmed and produced a video that clearly shows how it works on the company’s highly acclaimed DIAMONDLIFT—a popular state-of-the-art high pressure, low-volume telescopic piston lift.
The advantages of this approach are compelling, but not always accessible to the naked eye, as most of the action takes place below the surface of the workshop floor.
Hence, the video brings it to life.
What’s particularly important for maintenance facilities servicing and repairing heavy duty vehicles—including buses, trucks, and even U.S. military vehicles—is that Continuous Recess helps solve the challenge of safely lifting low-clearance vehicles.
Here’s what’s special: With Stertil-Koni’s Continuous Recess system, the movable lifting unit travels horizontally, while fully recessed below floor level, making it easier and safer to lift heavy duty vehicles.
Of particular note, the Continuous Recess option has become recently available on DIAMONDLIFT’s DIAMONDLIFT in two-piston configuration easily raises a transit bus two principal models—“Cassette” and “Frame.” Each version can lift a wide range of vehicles and features a lifting capacity of up to 35,000 lbs. per piston, or 70,000 lbs. in a two-piston configuration.
In making today’s announcement, Stertil-Koni president, Dr. Jean DellAmore, stated, “We are fully committed to providing the broadest range of ultra-safe, high performance heavy duty vehicle lifting systems in the industry. With the addition of Continuous Recess technology to our DIAMONDLIFT, it truly takes inground lifting technology to new heights. And now, with the images captured in our video, our customers can see the DIAMONDLIFT in action and fully appreciate the multiple benefits this powerful approach provides.”
