"I have been working with Stanley Handling for over 10 years and find them to be a first-class supplier to deal with."

Stanley Stairclimbers

Stanley Handling was set up more than 65 years ago (1948) and continues to be a leader in the industry that supplies both standard and bespoke manual handling equipment. All of our equipment and products are designed to make manual handling in the workplace (or at home) safer and easier. Here you will find Stanley’s range of powered stairclimbers.

Stairclimbers are designed specifically to help the user safely transport heavy and awkward items up and down stairs. They can also be used to load and unload vehicles and each stairclimber has been made with users in mind – getting to grips with each model is quick and easy meaning your manual handling jobs no longer have to be the daunting chore they once were. The principle of all models is the same – to get heavy loads up and down stairs with the minimum of fuss – but each has also been designed to handle different items and different weights. For example, the Stanley Sprinter is the most lightweight and smallest model available and can handle weights of between 110kg -170kg. On the opposite end of the spectrum, we have the PowerMate M2B which can tackle loads of up to 680kg.

Having the right tool for the job always makes life a bit easier and when it comes to carting heavy and awkward loads up and down flights of stairs, powered stairclimbers are absolutely the right tool. If you prefer not to operate the equipment yourself, you can ask for our man and machine service – this involves a trained and certified operator coming to your site, operating the relevant piece of equipment and moving the loads for you.

Its full name is – Powermate LE1 Powered Stairclimber (courtesy of Stanley Stairclimbers) – but we shall stick to ‘Luke’ for the purposes of this story.
