The Heavy Duty Platform Lift That Every Heavy Vehicle Workshop Needs

Stertil-Koni Platform SKYLIFT (Heavy Duty Platform Lift)

The Stertil-Koni SKYLIFT is a fully hydraulic platform lift for heavy vehicle workshops and provides a “clear floor concept” with a completely vertical rise without any horizontal offset. 

A truly space-saving premium heavy-duty vehicle platform lift compared to a conventional parallelogram and other platform lifts. 

The product’s elegant design includes: 

  • two independent platforms
  • vertical lifting
  • there are no crossbeams
  • no overhang
  • no base frame

It provides free access from all sides with easy installation and minimal maintenance.

The Stertil-Koni SKYLIFT is a high quality and robustly constructed platform lift. The top plates are not welded together like many conventional platform lifts on the market and are built out of one full piece of steel, making the SKYLIFT very strong and durable.

Complete Freedom of Movement and Safety

Stertil-Koni’s SKYLIFT is perfect for inspection, preventive maintenance, and service work, thanks to its robust construction and effective design. It keeps your workshop floor free from obstacles and safety hazards.

The SKYLIFT provides an easy “drive-on” and “drive-off”, with complete freedom of movement and easy accessibility under and around the elevated vehicle. This allows the mechanic to move freely under the platforms. 

Why choose SKYLIFT for Your Heavy Vehicle Workshop? 

SKYLIFT heavy duty platform lift is versatile and delivers a high return on investment with low installation costs, low-to-no maintenance, and maximum versatility.
