    Escalera Stair Climber with Forklifts

     

    This Escalera model features an electric powered stairclimber (1200 lb capacity) with a winch lift. At Handtrucks2go, we have the widest assortment of stairclimbers available anywhere, and we are proud to say that this model is one of our most popular best sellers!

    Side frames are made from tough tempered aluminum alloy, and the lift frame is made of steel. The forks are  28 inches long  and have a lifting height of up to up to 54 inches - high enough to load or unload a semi truck! All Escalera Forklifts have a 1200 pound maximum capacity. There are primarily 2 different models, the removable winch/lift model and the non-removable model. And then there is an option of a hand cranked lift or an electric winch lift.

    The Escalera can be used to easily load a safe, barrel, and woodstove, into a pickup truck or semi-trailer.

    Many of our customers want to know how long the battery will last. While this is really dependent on many factors, such as weight, temperature... Generally speaking, it will last for 100-150 steps with the standard battery, and 200-300 with the upgraded battery. (You can select the upgraded option below).

    We also have 2 more videos on the Escalera Home Page which will help you decide which model and accessories is right for you, and another video showing customer testimonials.

    A great way to move, appliances, vending machines, boilers, wood stoves, bathtubs, soda machines, mainframe computers, industrial batteries, fireplace inserts, fireproof safes, steel shelves, gun safes, hot water tanks, elevator equipment, all hvac machinery and more!

    If you are interested in ordering the Coppycaddy Phoptocopier Dolly make sure to order it together with your Escalera for extra savings (To take advantage of this please call us at 888 - 811-5941).

    Please Note: 1) Extented toeplate can only be used with removable frame models, when the winch lift is removed.
    2) Upgraded Battery option is only available with hand crank models (Electric lift models come standard with upgraded battery).

    I am very impressed with the construction of this handtruck. The stair climbing ability seems to work perfectly. As well as the forklift capability.

    Advantages: The advantage to be able to save the wear and tear on our backs by having a handtruck that ,not only climbs stairs on its own as well as being able to raise products up to be placed on a platform is priceless.

    More good than bad
    Biggest issue is the seat belt strap which after a weeks use doesn't pull its self back in all the way.

    Advantages: Big wheels are fantastic
    You can leave the load in the leaning position with the wheels on
    Climbs well
    Very stable

    Disadvantages: Strap terrible
    A little on the heavy side

    We here at Air technology move alot of heavy equipment. The Escalara stair climber is totally awesome. We move water heaters and boilers in and out of houses all day, and we find it to be a real back saver.

    Disadvantages: I lift weights for my personal goals but my men that work for me don't, so they have a hard time lifting up the unit into the truck.
    Handtrucks2go Specialist: Instead of lifting it in and out of the truck, simply lean it against the bumper and push the handles down towards the floor when bringing it into the truck, and slide it down when taking it out.

    We are a full service HVAC company and provide extensive removal of heating and air conditioning equipment. The Escalera Staircat stairclimber is the best tool I have in my tool bag. I'm telling and showing everyone my new toy. I can not believe I was working without one all this time.

    Advantages: It's light and versatile

    Disadvantages: It's not cheap.

    I love the product my (2nd purchase) of an Escalera, the first being from another distributor. I have to say that I was VERY happy with my entire purchase experience with Handtrucks2go. The process was quick, seamless and professional and it far exceeded my expectations and I would definitely recommend the product and I would absolutely suggest you do the deal with Handtrucks2go.

    Davis Business Machines purchased an Escalera Model RLA-EW on 8/5/2016. It has worked flawlessly. We use it to move copiers up and down stairs and it is GREAT. The forklift attachment is FANTASTIC. The ease of working the stair lift and forklift is AMAZING. We couldn't be more pleased with our purchase.

    We have used the hand truck two days ago and we love it it will come in very handy in the future for moving boilers and heaters in buildings and homes where there are no elevators and we must use the steps.

    They had what we were looking for at the best price.

    Advantages: Better pricing

    Disadvantages: Product did not ship by the specified day. This delayed our own work schedule.
    Handtrucks2go Response: We apologize for the unexpected delay. Once in a while we just get so many orders in that we fall behind the expected ship date. The guys came in on Sunday to catch up to schedule to get these units out.

    So far, so good, Had the opportunity to use it one time on a 450 pound load and it went well. Trying to learn how to balance at the right angle and also hold and run switch.

    Advantages: No workmans comp claims, easy to maneuver around when on the ground and strong for lifting at high angle.

    I have bad knees and going up and down stairs is hard on me. I have a load of 5 to 7 computers on my old hand truck all I could think of was am I going to have enough in me to keep them from falling down the stairs. Now with the Escalera Motorized Stair Climber With Forklift Handtruck I do not worry I just let stair climber do it job with little effort on my part.

    Advantages: When I get back to the shop the fork lift allows me to put my stuff away on shelves with little to no effort also on my part.

    Disadvantages: The only problem I have is loading the Escalera Motorized Stair Climber With Forklift Handtruck into my trailer I do not have a ramp and the Escalera Motorized Stair Climber With Forklift Handtruck is just a little bit to short for the stair climber to be able to work. I have now gotten a ramp and loading and unloading is no problem now.
    Thanks

    Equipment and customer service could not have been better. Very helpful in determinig what equipment would fit our needs. Product support has been great.
    Thank you.

    If you move appliances this handtruck is a MUST HAVE! Great customer service and communication.
    Thanks

    Great product!!!!! The only negative is we didn't get it sooner. Steps are truly a breeze.
    We added the big wheel attachment which is wonderful, making gravel drives, yards, etc. easy.
    When on a smooth surface, the retractable load support makes any size item a one man move.
    The step detection system takes some practice and has not been beneficial to us yet. In order for it to work, the truck angle has to be right which is not always possible.
    The hand crank lift is great and easy to remove.
    Handtrucks2go has quick response time and seems to have excellent customer service. "Seems" because outside of the purchase and a couple of questions afterward, the transaction was so smooth I haven't needed any customer service!!!!

    We just received this product and our customers are very happy we have one to move gun safes and aquariums.
    They thought it worked great for moving up the steps.

    Feels like very high quality, easy to operate, quality built – what more can I say? This is a great product and really increases productivity, prevents back injury and its easy rolling design protects even the most fragile items. Fantastic product!

    Ordered the product customer service was very helpful. Seemed like the shipping was a little slow, took about 8 days till it came. But at the end of the day the product was as stated, and works very well. Thanks Mike

    Climbs stairs well but if you are taking an appliance up stairs and need to turn the corner at the top of the stairs although the unit, does swivel in its place, there is no where to put your foot to maneuver the unit to swivel or turn the unit. It lifts great we stack appliances on top of each other. We also use it to work on items with the stacker lift add-on.

    Best thing we have ever bought for our store.. Works like a charm!!!!

    I really like this unit. I am still learning it but with everything I used it on has been great. It has taken a lot of work out of moving things both up and down stairs.

    I love the actaul mechanics and use of this product. However, the straps do NOT get tight. Really need to be a ratchet style. Like the seatbelt thought process but here again there is no way to tighten.

    Great service. Very helpful. The hand truck will be very beneficial for moving my pinball machines and jukeboxes up and down the steps in buildings where there are no service elevators.
    5
    This stair climber is high quality and very easy to use. The lift attachment installs and removes in a minute.
    Only regret we didn't purchase one sooner. Would have spared some aching backs and worries about injures to our employees.
