Arriva North West installs Stertil Koni Skylift for wash bay

As a key element of upgrading vehicle chassis washing facilities at its Southport depot, Arriva North West has replaced an old six-post platform lift with an electro-hydraulic Skylift 200-7WB from Stertil Koni.

The fully galvanised, 20 tonne capacity Skylift was recently installed within the depot’s dedicated chassis wash bay to simplify general washing and MoT preparation duties.

All Skylifts can be installed to a width compatible with a customer’s needs and within space limitations of workshops or working areas. This is aided by the Skylift’s vertical lifting and lowering movement which, unlike a parallelogram lift, means there are no obtrusive overhangs. Easily installed, moved and maintained, the Skylift is the ultimate lift in terms of efficiency, versatility and safety.

Varying platform lengths accommodate any vehicle while remaining unobstructed from all sides.

The Skylift can also be used in tandem, linking two lifts in a line to provide a total maximum lifting capacity of up to 70 tonnes.
