Stertil-Koni, which has long served the U.S. military, announced that the company is expanding its line of heavy-duty shop equipment tailored for servicing and repairing military vehicles.

“Service members working in vehicle maintenance facilities often find themselves in height-limited locations, where it can be difficult to lift vehicles high enough to perform work at a standing position under our lifts. Nonetheless, these same service members still must get the job done. That’s where Stertil-Koni Shop Equipment can help. With many of our new products, they will allow service members to complete floor work on large vehicles in a way that is both more safe and more efficient,” said Carl Boyer, shop equipment specialist for Stertil-Koni.

The Stertil-Koni lineup for the U.S. military includes high-capacity floor jacks, wheel dollies capable of use on 1600 R20 tactical vehicle tires, and shop cranes that can lift up to 4,400 lbs. Stertil-Koni aviation products certified for commercial aircraft lifting are also being adapted for use with military rotary and fixed-wing aircraft.

“Looking ahead, we are now tailoring a special demonstration trailer to allow Stertil-Koni to showcase some of our most popular equipment on military bases. In that way, technicians can get hands-on right away to demo and test it out — all in a real-world setting," Boyer continued.
