Hercules Personal Stairclimbers

General Information: applies to all Hercules Personal Stairclimber Models.

These machines are the cutting edge in technology for this type of equipment.


The Hercules Advantage

The Hercules Personal Stairclimbers offer passengers and operators the confidence and security they are looking for through innovative design.
During descent, the body of the Personal Stairclimber does not move until the unit's lifting feet have reached the next lower step.


The Hercules Personal Stairclimber is designed to aid the transportation of people up and down stairs. The PS comes in several options either with a built in seat or the ability to carry a wheelchair.

The stair climber can be stored in close proximity to the access point, available for use as the need arises. It disassembles and reassembles easily, and can be kept in a small valuable space.
In certain circumstances our stair climbers can be adopted by local councils (in the ratification of development applications) as suitable disability access.
Even where disability access is not a requirement, our equipment can be used as an added extra to your department. We have learned from our involvement with personal stair climbers, how difficult it can be for wheelchair users, the disabled and the aged to get around in a world sprinkled with non negotiable stairs.

Take your Stairclimber with you

The handle, battery and lifting unit are all detachable using a single lever You can dismantle your Hercules Personal Stairclimber in seconds and stow it away in the boot of your car to accompany you wherever you go. Now you can get around town and visit friends and relatives.

Let your Hercules Stairclimber do the lifting

The operator always has a relaxed posture and a straight back while using the Hercules Personal Stairclimber. There is no strain on the back or arms because the stairclimber is balanced during operation. The operator has one hand on the crossbar and one hand on the up/down switch.

Get carried away!

The Hercules Personal Stairclimber brake wheels activate the powerful braking system inside the rims of the main wheels.
Tilting the stairclimber back slightly gradually applies the brakes, so there is no risk of it running away with you on slopes and ramps.
