The SAL Series climbing stairs has been reduced to the minimum: the LIFTKAR pulls itself up onto the step above and lifts to only the necessary step height. During descent the motor acts like a brake to bring the load down smoothly. It is also ideal for winding staircases and landings where space is restricted. A lubricated mechanical clutch provides the unit with optimum protection against impact to the support wheels. Additional electronic protection prevents damage due to overloading.
While climbing, SAL hand trucks do not move any further than the height of each step. This makes high speeds possible at low power consumption. The extremely low weight of the truck itself is also a great advantage here. Without the quick-change battery unit the hand truck is only 6 kg heavier than a normal hand truck. The LIFTKAR SAL is basically a conventional aluminium hand truck that is able to climb stairs without physical effort.
The intelligent control system enables the load to be transported at two speeds at the touch of a button. An intelligent sensor system even allows the hand truck to find its own way down. You simply let the LIFTKAR SAL roll to the edge of the step. It then lowers itself smoothly onto the next step without you having to press anything. That means you can concentrate 100% on what you are doing. The LIFTKAR SAL is ideal for rapid delivery and transport, regardless of the application.
