    This video was shot by youtube user retrochad showing him moving a piano up and down steps on the Escalera hand truck without the forklift attachment.

    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.


    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).
