How to Move Vending Machines
Safe Climb. Minimum Time

All our stairclimbers have simple, intuitive controls. Most people feel confident with a machine in a matter of minutes. As a rule of thumb the climbing action is quicker to pick up as descending requires an understanding of the step edge detection. (All our machines have step edge detection to ensure the load cannot run away with you).

All stairclimbers are intended to be balanced. There should be little to no effort required as the machine does the lifting for you. In fact the lazier you try to be, the easier the climb is as the machine should be doing all the work. The operator’s only job is to maintain balance.

STAIRCAT
Staircat hand truck stair climbers are constructed of a tough tempered aluminium alloy. Stronger than magnesium but lighter than steel, these hand trucks make light work of heavy loads. The ergonomic placement of multiple hand holds provides the operator with a place to hold exactly where you need it.

Max. lifting capacity: 540kg

Accessories for Vending Machines: Removable forklift, Height Adjustable Toe Plate, Big Wheels, Retractable Load Support, Additional Straps.

The MLA range has a non-detachable fork. The swivel castors are at the back of the machine to assist with the handling of large loads on tight landings.

The RLA range has a detachable fork. It offers the flexibility of use with or without the fork and can be turned into the standard staircat in seconds. The RLA has swivel castors on the front.

Accessories for Vending Machines:
Lift Plate with Ramp, Big Wheels, Retractable Load Support, Additional Straps, Lift Hitch, Portable Steps.

DOMINO AUTO
The Domino is a track style stairclimber which also has a steering capability. The Domino has automatic load levelling, ensuring the load is always kept in its natural, vertical position. The caterpillar or non-marking tracks are independently powered with powerful electric motors ensuring maximum manoeuvrability even in narrow spaces

Max. lifting capacity: 400kg

Accessories for Vending Machines: Lifting Columns, Wheeled base, adjustable base for bulky loads.

PIANOPLAN VERTICAL
With powered tilting platform to vertical position, suitable when the object must be rotated from vertical, onto its side, effectively onto the Pianoplan platform. For example, when carrying a bulky vending machine, the Pianoplan picks up the vendor from its vertical position, then lays it over to horizontal for transportation up the stairs, then stands it back to upright on arrival at its destination. It does all of this using hydraulics – i.e. no operator tilting required.

The Pianoplan staircrawler ensures that manual handling of large and bulky items is eliminated, at the same time complying with OH & S regulations, reducing the risk of slips or trips and promoting productivity and efficiency.

Max. lifting capacity: 600kg

Accessories for Vending Machines: Loading forks
