The ECO 60 2-scissor version was installed at the facility in Japan with a lifting capacity of 27,000 kg and a lifting height  of 1,780 mm.

Besides the ECOLIFT, the manufacturer ordered for the same facilty a Stertil-Koni SKYLIFT. An easy “drive-on” and “drive-off” platform lift with optimal access to the vehicle, taking up minimum workshop floor space.  With the patented construction – making it easy to work around and under the raised vehicle.
