Heavy duty vehicle lift leader Stertil-Koni today announced the introduction of a new accessory – the differential adapter – that has been specifically engineered to safely and easily lift vehicles by the rear differential using the company’s popular state-of-the-art high pressure telescopic piston lift, the DIAMONDLIFT.
The new offering from Stertil-Koni is ideal for lifting – and servicing – small, medium, and large pickup trucks, as well as smaller school buses, with a maximum axle weight of 10,000 lbs. The adapter is an ALI/ALCTV certified accessory for all models of DIAMONDLIFT.
Here is how it works:
- The differential adapter allows vehicles to be lifted by the “rear differential”- some people also refer to it as the “pumpkin” adapter.
- Lifting by the rear differential is particularly helpful when the axle tube (the typical lifting point for most heavy duty vehicles) is obstructed by such items as sway bars, automatic snow chains, or other elements that make it difficult to reach the axle tube for use with traditional adapters.
- The differential adapter “cradles” the differential and is self-centering due to spring loaded ball bearings (meaning it centers itself underneath the differential), making the setup and use quick, easy, convenient, and safe.
- Once engaged, the spring loaded ball bearings retract and allow full contact between the differential adapter and the lifting bolster to ensure safe and stable lifting.
