The Alltruck Group relies upon a mix of Stertil Koni 4-post and 2-post heavy duty vehicle lifts to simplify a wide range of operations within its new workshop in Grangemouth.
“We wanted market-leading products supported by an efficient after sales service to help keep downtime to a minimum,” says Davie Russell, General Manager of the Alltruck Group. “From previous experience of using Stertil Koni heavy duty vehicle lifts, we knew that we could rely on top quality performance and reliability in our extremely busy workshop environment.”
Established in 2012, the Alltruck Group is Scotland’s complete fleet partner providing quality commercial vehicles to businesses across the country. Comprising a number of independent companies, the Group prides itself in providing unrivalled customer care to the commercial vehicle industry. This includes a comprehensive range of one-stop solutions, including vehicle and crane maintenance, truck rental and leasing, crane sales and commercial vehicle bodybuilding services, throughout Central Scotland from four dedicated sites.
The decision to invest in the new Stertil Koni vehicle lifts followed the use of a 17.5 tonne capacity 4-post lift, type ST4175, which was chosen in preference to a conventional inspection pit. Such was the success of this first lift that the Group didn’t hesitate to purchase another 4-post lift, type ST4250, and a 2-post version for installation within the Group’s new, fully-equipped Grangemouth workshop.
Both 4-post vehicle lifts are from the Stertil Koni Ultra range. The ST4175 and the ST4250 lifts offer respective lifting capacities of 17.5 tonnes and 25 tonnes. However, when used as a set of two in tandem, these models can achieve maximum lifting capacities of 35 and 50 tonnes.
