SAL Lite

SAL Lite

lightest and fastest powered stairclimber


As easy to use as a hand truck, the SAL Lite’s battery powered climbing mechanism allows you to climb stairs quickly and safely with loads up to 170 kg.

The SAL Lite is true to its name with the modular construction delivering an astonishing low tare weight of just 16 kg. This allows a single operator to effortlessly load it into a vehicle without the need for a ramp or second person.

Despite the extreme lightweight structure, the SAL Lite can safely and efficiently lift loads of over 10 times its own weight. Suitable for winding stairs and narrow landings, the machine climbs onto the next step efficiently and precisely. Going down, the motor acts like a brake, the load gliding smoothly, softly and safely down the stairs – no need to press any buttons.

All our stairclimbers are engineered, designed and built to eliminate lifting related injuries. Stairclimber technology integrated into high quality machines make transporting heavy loads up and down stairs efficient, safe, cost-effective and back injuries become a thing of the past.

Three different motor sizes are available (110 kg, 140 kg and 170 kg) that guarantee an optimum climbing performance of up to 48 steps per minute depending on the weight to be transported.

The flexibility of load capacities as well as four different handle configurations (Uni, Fold, Fold-L and Ergo) make the SAL Lite ideal for a multitude of lifting applications in industry, retail and business. Schools, hospitals, commercial kitchens, offices and a multitude of other organisations have enjoyed the benefits of the SAL Lite stairwalker over several decades.

Whatever goods you need to move up and down stairs or steps, the SAL Lite range of electric stair climbers has you covered, saving you time and avoiding back strain and other injuries that can result from heavy lifting.
