Moving heavy goods is difficult at the best of times, but this is particularly hard when a flight of stairs is involved. If you've ever had to move heavy goods up or down the stairs you'll know what a pain it can be trying to work out the logistics of the job.
This is also one of the most dangerous parts of any lifting job as the stairs create an additional risk to the person carrying out the job and damaging the goods themselves. Luckily, we want to provide you with a solution to all your lifting jobs, which is why we are introducing our Electric Stair Climbing Sack Truck!
This 150kg electric powered sack truck is ideal for carrying furniture, household appliances, and other large items up and down the stairs safely.

This makes moving goods far more efficient as well as drastically reducing the risk of injury.
Some of the benefits of this electric stair climber are:

At SafetyLiftinGear we always aim to offer a lifting solution to match all of our customer's requirements, which is exactly why we continue to expand our range of products. This time we have added products to our popular range of hydraulic cylinders, now our product range is suitable for those looking to lift 150 tonnes and 200 tonnes.
Previously we only stocked hydraulic cylinders that were capable of moving 100 tonne weights, which is why we are so pleased to add even more specialist products for high capacity lifting/jacking.
Our hydraulic cylinders are helpful in a range of industrial applications. Whether you need to push, pull or lift, our hydraulic cylinders are capable of the job. Their durable design allows them to be used day after day and always perform perfectly. To see our new, heavy-duty hydraulic cylinders, see the links below:
150 tonne x 100mm Hydraulic Cylinder
150 tonne x 150mm Hydraulic Cylinder
200 tonne x 100mm Hydraulic Cylinder

Heavy-duty hydraulic hand pump
We also supply a range of manual hand pumps to operate the cylinders. We had to expand this collection too to accommodate our new hydraulic cylinder range. Our hydraulic hand pumps have a large release valve handle for controlling lead decent and 2 speeds so they can be used for high and low-pressure projects. This hand pump is compatible with the hydraulic cylinders above!
If you can't seem to find the combination of products you need for your lifting project than you always talk to us about your requirements. If you're wondering what other hydraulic cylinders we offer you can read our blog post here. If you ever need to ask our expert advice about lifting equipment, you can contact us here today.
