What’s the best way to install a state-of-the-art frictionless, induction breaking system in a 1941 American LaFrance Fire Truck?
At Jay Leno’s Garage the answer is simple: first get a set of Stertil-Koni ST 1082 Wireless Mobile Column Lifts. As Jay knows, Stertil-Koni takes heavy duty vehicle lifting to new heights. Each of the company’s hydraulic ST 1082 mobile column lifts has a capacity of 18,000 lbs. per column and a set of four on Jay’s shop floor has a capacity of 72,000 lbs. – easily handling the lifting and lowering of the TV star’s eight-ton classic, V12 engine monster fire truck.
As a dedicated vehicle enthusiast and knowledgeable technician, Jay Leno enthusiastically explores the very latest in vehicle servicing and restoration techniques in his highly acclaimed series, Jay Leno’s Garage (http://www.jaylenosgarage.com).
That’s why Stertil-Koni, the recognized leader in heavy duty vehicle lifts, is proud to have the company’s hydraulic lifts personally selected by Jay. Industry experts, like Jay, recognize that Stertil-Koni’s mobile column lifts are distinguished by their highly dependable hydraulic lifting system that operates quickly, efficiently and smoothly – with low maintenance – in contrast to certain mechanical lifting approaches.
Clearly, one of the most eye-catching features of the Stertil-Koni 1082 is its wireless capability. These lifts require minimal set up time, as no interconnecting cables are required, and utilize a 24 VDC system, so no external power source is needed to operate them. The result is a superior heavy duty lifting system, with maximum access to the vehicle and no risk of tripping.
