The new ST 1085 heavy duty hydraulic mobile column lift can lift up to 18,500 lbs. per column and is equipped with extra-long adjustable pick-up forks of 14 in. to safely raise all types of vehicles, including those with super single tires.

The lift, from Stertil-Koni, also has adjustable lifting forks, allowing vehicles with variable wheel diameters to be lifted. The ST 1085 also features a “multi master system,” equipped with a control box on each individual column. Columns can be operated individually, in pairs or a complete set with the touch of a single button. Columns are also interchangeable, so they can be used at multiple locations.

“The new ST 1085 leverages our tremendous company expertise in reliable hydraulic technology, which ensures efficient and smooth lifting with low maintenance – every time.” The ST 1085 only takes 94 seconds to reach its maximum lifting height of 73 in. – making it one of the fastest mobile lifting columns in the world,” said Jean DellAmore, president.

The ST 1085 is available in four control system options, including a wireless option. The lift operates on 24 VDC, requires no external power source to operate, communicates by ZigBee mesh protocol for high reliability and no cross channel interference, and is powered by standard deep cycle batteries that typically last up to two weeks prior to recharging. 

The ST 1085 is also available with controls that allow the operation of a maximum of 28 columns in a set with a fully functioning control box on each column.

The unit’s wireless Earthlift option makes it a hydraulic green mobile column lift. The columns are made with components that are 98% recyclable and the Active Energy Retrieval System allows operators to achieve 35% more lifting cycles at maximum lifting load. Earthlift also uses a closed hydraulic system that contains biodegradable oil and the batteries are 100% recyclable.

The columns can be easily relocated by using the synthetic wheels and a hydraulic pallet jack mechanism, which incorporates a patented gas spring. As an option, the ST 1085 also is available with detachable transport pockets to lift and transport the mobile column lift quickly with a fork lift.
