A Fully Hydraulic Platform Lift

a fully hydraulic platform lift

The Stertil-Koni SKYLIFT is a fully hydraulic platform lift and provides a ‘clear floor concept’ with a completely vertical rise without any horizontal offset. 

It functions as a space-saving heavy duty vehicle platform lift, when compared to conventional parallelogram or other platform lifts.

The product’s design includes: 

  • two independent platforms
  • vertical lifting
  • no crossbeams
  • no overhang
  • no base frame

The platform provides free access from all sides with easy installation and minimal maintenance.

The Stertil-Koni SKYLIFT is a high quality and robustly constructed platform lift. The top plates are not welded together like many conventional platform lifts on the market and are constructed out of one full piece of steel making the SKYLIFT very strong and extremely durable.

Complete Freedom of Movement

Stertil-Koni’s SKYLIFT is designed for inspection, preventive maintenance, and service work thanks to its robust construction and effective design. 

The lift features an ‘easy ‘drive-on’ and ‘drive-off’ design, complete freedom of movement and easy accessibility under and around the elevated vehicle, whereby the mechanic can move freely under the platforms. 


The SKYLIFT is very versatile and delivers a high return on investment with low installation costs; low-to-no maintenance and maximum versatility. The system does not require a pit, so it can also be dismantled in the event of a move to a new workshop location if required. SKYLIFT is available in a wide range of models, including an outdoor specific wash bay model, and each model has its own lifting capacity at 20,000kg, 25,000kg or 35,000kg.
