with Escalera StairCat Stair Climbing Hand Trucks and Stair Climbing Forklifts.


"Really impresses the customers-it's penny wise & pound foolish not to buy one for moving appliances." -Fremont Appliances "Had it not been for the Escalera there would be some serious chiropractic visits, maybe even some serious surgical procedures taking place. Definitely takes the weight off, no doubt about it. Lots of customers comments, just about every time I arrive with that guy, they say, "Hey, that's a pretty nifty little unit you got there", and of course I tell them "Without that unit, I would be a hurting unit". -Stove Installer "The Escalera has been a very good investment for our business. It has helped us get to places we were not normally could not get to. Helped with our installations heating, plumbing and installing wood stoves." -Rudy's Plumbing and Heating "We think your Escalera Manhandler is the greatest thing since the wheel for moving big screen TV's. I will say without a doubt, it is a lifesaver for small operators such as myself". -Universal TV " The Escalera has helped us tremendously because it has made our job much easier getting these large parts up and down stairwells, in and out of pickups, etc. In fact, I would say that it paid for itself the first time we used it. I think it's a very definite asset to any elevator company who does a lot of repair work and has to move armatures, drivers, large rotating equipment in and out of a machine room on a daily basis. It's a tremendous labor saving device. It saves a lot of money." -Dover Elevator Company "We would have to turn business down if we didn't have some sort of a stair walker. We had turned business down up to this point and we got business because we had the Escalera. There were schools that refused to use us before and once we got it we were able to do it and do it efficiently with one man". -Scholastic Book Fairs "Since 1980 we've installed well over 6000 stoves in this area....We've had many deliveries up stairwells that would have been very difficult without an Escalera. I can only think of one delivery that was so difficult the Escalera couldn't handle it. We had to call in a crane for that one. Outside of that, every delivery situation we've had we have been able to use the Escalera." -Placerville Energy Center "Before we had that Escalera we came close to death on a few deliveries. It's hard to really put a value on it.. At this point we couldn't conceive of doing anything without it. It enables us to do deliveries with one person rather than send two or three guys out on a delivery. One guy can go out, unload a stove, bring it into a house and the stove could weigh 700 lbs. so it's definitely a big help. We don't have a forklift so basically our Escalera is our forklift and our hand truck all in one. It's been invaluable for our business.". -Solar Syndicate  "I beat the snot out of this thing and it works great." -Edwards Lock & Safe "I love that dolly & I run a one-man shop. Would never want to give it up." -Appliance Mart " fact, it is a lot better than a helper. First it's always at work on time; second, it never talks back." -Appliance Rental Co. " investment I've ever made...replaces one man. Now I can employ all female help." -Jerry's True Value "Very happy with our Escalera, very few problems." -Herman's Tires "It has seen about 3,000 stoves and has worked great all that time." -Buck Energy "Saves man and payroll. Paid for itself in 2 weeks." -Bittner Appliance "We use an old model Escalera and love it. We like the new Gel-Cel batteries." -Penners "Unit has saved my ass a few times." -Arizona Lock and Safe "Can't get along without it." -Black Magic Chimney Sweep "Excellent unit." -A-1 Rentals "Wish I had a buck for every time I used it." -Astech Appliance "I sold 3 friends on Escalera Stairclimbers...each bought one." -Dolven's Appliance "Love it." -Joseph C McElroy "Love it...send people to see it." -A & F Appliance "Use it all the time...excellent for stairs in San Francisco." -A.B.C. Appliance "We've saved almost 30% of delivery cost by using Escalera's motorized carts." -Ace Appliance "Best piece of equipment we've ever bought!" -A. A. A. Mittmans "Would get out of the business if we didn't have our lift." -NU Dimension Products "Only one man shows up, amazing!" -Allied Refrigeration & Electric "Neat, couldn't get along without it." -American Storage Tank Co "We really like it." -Andy's Appliance "Use it every day during season." -Apple Valley Fireside "It's a remarkable unit. Thanks for the great service." -Buck Stove "Highly recommend Escalera lifts." -Aspen Home & Energy "I couldn't operate without an Escalera-that is why I have two." -Casey's Refrigeration & Appliance "Excellent machine; we move Zerox, IBM and Royal mainframes." -Computer Transport "Working great. I climb everything up here, 70 steps a day. I've taken 27 cubic foot refrigerators up over 30 steps & have moved 8 refers in a day." -Five Star Appliance "It's a real labor saver." -Kermit Pederson Store "We've used the shit out of this motor the last 5 years." -Computer Carrier Corp. "Love it." -Anthony's TV & Appliance "God, I'm tickled with that cart." -Ray's Appliance "We are very pleased. It's been a real blessing. Be glad to demonstrate unit." -Soot Busters "My son won't go without a power unit." -Roys Appliance "3 stoves a day, 6 days a week, I'm a one-man operation; put in over 1,000 stoves." -Henry A Scoggins "Thank-you very much for your speedy rebuilding of our handtruck. It works better than new." -TeeVax "Use it a lot, works great." -Mavis Music Co. "We have 15 Escalera Stairclimbers & send only one man out on deliveries." Phillips Delivery "Thanks. You guys are great!" -Sutter Appliance "They're fantastic for what we're doing." -Speed & Electric "I'm tickled to death with my Escalera! That's why I have two." -Don's Appliance "Our unit an MLA-HC has worn down after much good service." -The Energy Center "We rely on your mechanism so much these days; thanks for the quick service." -The Energy Shed "This equipment has served me well these 15 years." -Eshlemans Inc. "I wouldn't be in the piano business without one. If you don't have one, you don't know what you've been missing." -Forrest's Band Instruments "I want to tell you that your Escalera moving cart is great. I now can deliver any appliance without help many times thus saving me the cost of an extra man. It's well worth the cost." -Gamble Store "We recommend Escalera to all of our dealers." -General Electric Co. "This is the first part I've ordered in 4 years and we use the heck out of it." -The Good Earth Works "Delivery people love it." -Harbison Appliance Sales and Service "Thanks for such great service!" -Heat Exchange Inc. "It's been a good one. I'm 70 years old last month & still at it every day...been in the appliance business since 1953, bought my Escalera 10 years ago." -Higgason T.V. & Appliance "We used to use a two-man crew. Now we have two one-man crews. We make more money and they make more money. It paid for itself in less than a year." -Home Energy Center "I enjoy using your equipment very much. It's a real back saver in my plumbing and heating business." -Hopmeadow Home Service "I've gone more places with my Escalera than with a four-wheel drive." -Hot Air Co. "We move large water heaters. We really use our 1000lb. capacity Escalera." -Simonson Brothers "We use it on a daily basis." -Hursh T.V. Inc. "We've had it for at least 10 years-still works great." -J & S Appliance "Like it for tight spaces, very happy with our unit for lifting 700-900lb. safes, easy to handle." -Keep Safe of California "Finest ever used!" -Kelly's TV & Appliance "I'm very happy with my Escalera. I sold my old one to Good Will and bought a new one." -Klinefelter Electric "It has really taken a load off our backs." -Jerry B. Leach Co."Borrowed an Escalera from a friend & I liked it so much I bought one for myself." -McCormick Appliance "The Escalera facilitates safe delivery of large appliances to upstairs dwellings since there is ease of movement upstairs with the Escalera.
