Stertil-Koni has introduced a new accessory the differential adapter for the DiamondLift. According to the company, the differential adapter has been specifically engineered to safely and easily lift vehicles by the rear differential, with a maximum axle weight of 10,000 lbs.
According to the company:
- The differential adapter allows vehicles to be lifted by the “rear differential,” which some refer to 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.
