Manufacturers of the World's Finest Stair Climbing Hand Trucks

For moving wood, pellet, corn, and gas stoves Escalera recommends:

  • MLA-HC or MLA-EW
    Escalera Stairclimbing Forklift

  • BWA-1
    Big Wheel Attachment

  • LPA
    Lift Plate Attachment

  • LH-3
    Lift Hitch Attachment


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.

Install 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.
