Quick preventative maintenance is not always the easiest task when it comes to tractor-trailers (also known as 18 wheelers, big rigs, or semis) and busses. While that may be true for most companies, it is not for Middleton & Meads. Here we use Stertil-Koni mobile lifts. These lifts allow Middleton & Meads to raise any vehicle that we service, anywhere in our shops, as well as outside our shop.
Each lift is individually positioned under the vehicle’s tires and through the use of a control panel on each lift the vehicle is raised. The setup time of the lifts is much quicker than the setup of jack stands, which improves the efficiency of the repair.
The Stertil-Koni EARTHLIFT features/ benefits include:
• Self-regenerative feature extends recharging intervals to 27 cycles at full load
• Columns are made from 98% recyclable components
• All electronics meet RoHS (Restriction of Use of Hazardous Substances) norms
• Batteries are 100% recyclable
• Operates using biodegradable oil
EARTHLIFT is also one of the first truly green, wheel-engaging mobile lifting columns in the industry. Lift columns return electrical charge to the on-board batteries through a unique AERS (Active Energy Retrieval System), which uses the force of gravity to generate energy that recharges the batteries during each lowering cycle.
Pretty neat, huh?
