You can use the Escalera
Stair Climbing Forklift to raise and lower woodstoves and inserts in and out of the back
of your delivery vehicle with the easy-to-use hand operated winch (MLA-HC) or the battery
powered electric winch (MLA-EW). The 28 inch long forks can lift 1200 pounds up to 54
inches high. This is high enough to load and unload a semi-truck without having a loading
dock and a traditional forklift.
Use the included RW-1 Automatic Rewinding Safety Strap to secure the stove to the
handtruck. The safety straps work very similar to seat belts in your car. Because the
safety straps rewind automatically into the sideframe when they are not in use, you will
never have straps hanging down by your feet.
the optional BWA-1 Big Wheel Attachment by hooking the Big Wheel frame on the bottom of
the handtruck side frames. Next, with one hand, push the big wheel frame firmly against the
handtruck. Raise the latch to secure the Big Wheel Attachment to the hand truck.
By raising the forks, you raise the center of gravity, making it
easier to break back the load. You can put your foot on the 3/4 inch big wheel axle to
assist tilting the load, and you can balance the handtruck on the big wheels when it is
tilted back. Notice how the weight of the stove is centered over the wheels. Centering the
load makes it easier to handle when rolling on the ground or when climbing stairs. The Escalera Stairclimbing Forklift is very versatile. One man can easily handle the
woodstoves and inserts. The battery-powered stairclimbers will climb over 130 steps up and back down with a full load and is
very gentle while climbing stairs. You can also purchase a completely non-powered
handtruck and update to the stair climber later. Twenty-eight inch long forks will lift
loads up to 54 inches high. This is high enough to load and unload a semi-truck. You can
also raise your stoves to a comfortable service level. The forks are 15 1/2 inches apart
for moving loads on or off pallets. The Escalera forklifts are available with or without
the battery-powered stairclimbers, with a hand-operated winch or electric winch for
raising and lowering the forks. Swivel casters mounted underneath make the forklift
extremely maneuverable in tight places, and using the 10 inch pneumatic Big Wheel Attachment allows you to roll over rough
terrain like gravel or grass. The automatic rewinding
safety straps will hold any load securely to the handtruck for safe transport and
remain installed on the machine for quick and easy use. You can use our lightweight
aluminum portable steps for climbing in and out of pickup trucks. Escalera also offers a
lift-hitch for carrying the lift on the back of delivery vehicles and service vans.
