    Escalera Motorized Stairclimber Hand Truck 

    Handtrucks2Go is proud to offer the the Escalera Staircat Electric Stair Climber hand truck for sale as part of our continuous efforts to present our customers the widest array of motorized stair climbers available anywhere. Made right here in the USA, constructed of a tough tempered aluminum alloy, making the handtrucks stronger than magnesium, but lighter than steel. All Escalera Stair Climber hand trucks are 24 inches wide and range in size from 60 inches to 72 inches tall.

    One of the things that we especially like about the Escalera is the wide array of accessories available with the machine, making it a great choice for many applications. See the Accessories tab on top for full details. Every Escalera Stair Climber ships with the sealed gel-cell battery, automatic battery charger, and one automatic rewind safety strap included. They are available with either a 700 or 1200 pound capacity. If you need a stacker capability attached to your stairclimber, then have a look at the Escalera Powered stair climber and fork lift.

    1 Year Warranty Included

    Standard Included Accessories

    • RW-1 auto-rewinding safety strap (12 ft Length)
    • Sealed gel-cell battery
    • Automatic battery charger.

    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 is right for you, and another video showing customer testimonials.

    So far so good

    Advantages: The product does what it claims

    Disadvantages: The cart is a little heavier and bulkier than I anticipated, but still much lighter than other ones like this that I have used.

    Purchased this product because we deliver home appliances in the foothill area. All homes have stairs in our area, from one to thirty or forty. Appliances today can be extremely heavy, especially refrigerators. My delivery crew can now load the unit and easily deliver into a customers home.

    Advantages: This unit is compact enough that it works well on narrower applications. The larger wheel attachment now makes it a lot easier to move across gravel and unlevel ground.

    Disadvantages: At this point, we have not found any disadvantages to the unit, however, we have only had it for one week.

    Works effortlessly, a lot of power for a little unit

    Advantages: Regular size hand truck that is a work horse and doesn't way a ton, easy to use. Recommend the bottom extension plate and wheel kit. These options are a must.

    Disadvantages: Battery charger connection could use some improvement but that is it.

    I recently renewed my hot water heater it was long over due for a changing. It was half full of sediment & weighed about twice as much as it should have. The Escalera staircat made the job of getting it up the stairs from the basement very easy & nobody got hurt. A fine piece of equipment. Keep up the good work !!

    Advantages: A handy piece of equipment , I am sure I will use it many more times. I will recommend it to my friends.

    Disadvantages: none

    The best power dolly we own the delivery guys fight over who gets to use it.

    Advantages: Saves us money, allowing less people per job.

    Been wanting to purchase a stair climbing hand truck for some time for water heater installations. It works great, saves time and keep my employees back injuries from occurring.

    Although we have had the unit only a few days it has already been put to use for the intended purpose and has made the task much less labor intensive. With recently installed water softeners on the buildings air conditioning system we would normally be manually transporting 60 lb. bags of salt up a flight of stairs and distributing at these units. The purchase of the MS-60 including the big wheel and cross handle attachments has significantly reduced the labor factor and burden that the task would place on staff.

    Advantages: Safety, reduced labor and increased production.

    Disadvantages: None at this time.

    I am a plumber andI found the Escalera stair climber very easy to use and a big help for my business. I have used other types of electric hand trucks but the Staircat is is the best choice and easiest to use.

    Advantages: Light weight one person operation ,saves on labor.

    Disadvantages: Haven't found anything
    May 11, 2016
    Exactly as expected.

    Advantages: Speed of motor and extremely sturdy

    Disadvantages: Should have ordered the bigger wheels.

    I've known about this product for quite a while but at the time I couldn't fit it into the budget. If I would have known it was as useful as it is, I would have changed my priorities! I'm a cabinet maker, so the use of this product may not be of the norm, but trying to move cabinets up narrow residential stairwells is quite challenging and takes up to 6 people. Now all I need is two people and the Escalera! Now the challenge of moving cabinetry upstairs is not, for the most part, impossible. And I can make more of my cabinets in one piece instead of knock down and rebuild. Also the worry of damage has decreased immensely. There's a lot to be said for piece of mind. Thank you so much!

    Advantages: For me, my business runs smoother with the Escalera, less chance of injury, damage and my planning and fabrication is more streamlined.

    Disadvantages: Once again, for me, there is NO downside, win/win all the way.

    Works great, worth every penny.

    Just uncartoned this cart- haven't got it out in the field yet, but did some drills with it in our shop- I think this stairclimber will be a valuable part of our tool arsenal.

    Advantages: lighter weight than comparable models i researched-

    Good service at time of placing order. Called later the same day to upgrade hand cart selection to 1200 lb model and was nervous that they wouldn't be shipping the correct item. Hal got it RIGHT! My helper and I removed 3 different boilers approx. 600 lbs each before noon today. What a back and time saver!

    Advantages: powerful,big wheel attachment goes on and off quickly and easily, light weight easy to maneuver between lifts.

    Disadvantages: none so far

    I love the product. Works as expected. Well worth every penny.
    Ours came in today, haven't had the chance to try it yet. Looked it all over and it is very well made, very good construction. Quick shipping and packed very tight, no slipping. Have got a lot of heavy moving coming up and can't wait to give it a whirl. Wife is gonna take it before I get the chance. Think she is very excited in trying it before I get to.
    The delivery was great, the Escalera Stair Climber Hand Truck works great and staff are especially happy with the magnum cross-grip handle upgrade.
    Very well built and all the extra accessories I purchased make it all the more worth the price. Took a few trips with a load to get used to weight shift when the feet first contact the step, but gets easier to use every time.
    Works great every contractor should have this hand truck!
    Great piece of equipment, I now have my appliance delivery guys working on their own, instead of needing 2 guys per delivery. Paid for itself in less than a month!
    Worth its weight in gold,
    Enough said!
    I bought the Escalera after seeing it demonstrated at Pinball Expo 2014 in Chicago. I have a small collection of pinball machines and unfortunately, I have to keep then upstairs in my home. The stairclimber worked perfectly going up the stairs and the battery lasted long enough for me and friends to move around 5 machines with no notice of battery drain.
    Valuable tool... Will save backs and workers comp claims!
    The features of the Escalera stair climbers are fantastic. Easy to use, good capacity, and the cell battery lasted for about 3-4 hours of continuous use. Got if fairly quickly and the service was excellent.
    I am an independent hvac contractor that works primarily alone. this is an invaluable tool for removing boilers and furnaces from basements. I would highly recommend this product to anyone in the business.
    The best investment we ever made. This is our second because we wore the first one out. They work great,!! and take a lickin and keep on tickin.
    This is our second Staircat. We bought the first one seven years ago and are using it at our branch location. They are a back saver for our employees. I don't know how we ever got along without one.
    To me, this product was not about saving time or having smaller crews. This was a life-safety issue; end of story. We are delighted that the Escalera's quality and performance have equalled our concern for the health and well-being of our installers and service technicians.
    We have been using our Escalera Staircat Powered Stair Climber at least two to three times a week ever since we recieved it. We think that a strap from the bottom of the step plate to the top handle would hold our uneven size boxes from moving along with the three horizontal straps we already have.We also would like to see a better power knob which would work better with the palm of your hand and not tire your fingers. Otherwise we are very pleased with how the machine works and saves on back problems.
    PS We use the stair climber for a round trip of 38 steps at a time, and it still feels like it has allot of battery life in it after that.
    The online ordering process was easy and also had no problem reaching Handtrucks2go by phone to ask a question about delivery. We've received our stair climber and it is working great for moving our copiers up and down the stairs. Only regret is, that I only found out recently about these automatic stair climber hand trucks. Thanks
