Washbay Upgrades With A Skylift

VIA EAST MIDLANDS, working in partnership with Nottinghamshire County Council, provide fleet services across the county. They are also responsible for steam cleaning the vehicles undersides in preparation for MOT testing and for the general cleanliness of the fleet.
Providing a lifting capacity of 25 tonnes and a platform length of 9m, the heavy duty SKY 250 handles a range of council vehicles including refuse collection vehicles, street cleansing sweepers, highway maintenance tippers and flat bodied trucks, road surfacing machines and salt spreaders.
Washbay staff use the galvanised SKY 250 in its lowered position to steam clean the vehicle bodies. They then use the lift in its raised position to carry out chassis washes as the first part of annual testing.
The Stertil Koni Skylift is available in three lifting capacity options, 20, 25 and 35 tonnes and offers a lifting height of 1.75 metres, reached in 89 seconds.
The Skylift’s two lifting legs and its lack of crossbeams or base frame provide working space beneath and access from all sides of the vehicle.
