Heavy Vehicle Hoists for Mines

We understand that safety is paramount for mine operations, and it’s also one of the biggest factors to consider when selecting the right heavy vehicle hoists for mines.

Genesis Equipment’s Heavy vehicle mobile column lifts are highly recommended for the mining industry thanks to their robust design and extensive range of safety features which come as standard.

At Genesis Equipment we supply heavy-vehicle mobile column lifts from a market leader Stertil-Koni – which meet stringent safety standards and are easy to use.

Operating and positioning heavy-vehicle mobile column lifts has also never been simpler, thanks to Stertil-Koni’s eBright Smart Control System.

The Stertil-Koni range also has an IP65 rating meaning it can be used in wash down bays and outdoors undercover thanks to its splash proof design.

  • Adjustable fork type
  • Fork length – 350 mm
