The UK’s leading vehicle lifting specialist, Stertil Koni, has extended its popular range of Wheel Dollies. Designed to ensure the safe and precise handling of heavy and cumbersome commercial vehicle wheels, the range now comprises three models offering lifting capacities from 500kg to 1000kg.
Stertil Koni’s STANDARD Wheel Dolly is ideal for low level duties and can be used for work over inspection pits and under raised vehicles. The HI-LIFT has been developed specifically for working with mobile column lifts or surface mounted platform lifts without a base frame. Completing the trio, the COUNTERBALANCE Wheel Dolly is ideal for use with recessed platform lifts, scissor lifts and those with a base-frame under the platform. All three models are operated by using a manual hydraulic pump although battery-powered versions are available depending on models and applications.
The Stertil Koni Wheel Dolly range has been specifically designed to tackle all potential wheel and tyre lifting applications within busy commercial vehicle workshops. Many of these tasks have traditionally required the involvement of two people to ensure safe handling. By contrast, the Wheel Dollies are operated by a single person and a previously back-breaking task is now completed fast, precisely and, most important, in complete safety.
As the most standards-compliant company in the vehicle lift and workshop equipment industry, Stertil Koni is committed to quality, reliability and improving safety within the commercial workshop environment. Significantly, this commitment is robustly maintained against a background of increasingly stringent lifting and handling regulations.
Tony Edge, general manager, says, "Vehicle workshops present many challenges to those companies which strive to ensure excellent performance alongside safe working practices. Since their introduction, our Wheel Dollies have been welcomed by customers who share our view that personnel welfare can be assured without compromising on the performance and reliability of the workshop equipment we supply. Now, by extending the range, our Wheel Dollies can be relied upon to simplify a greater number of wheel and tyre handling applications particularly those involving twin wheeled vehicles."
