A new range of stair-climbers available for hire from Kennards Lift & Shift is helping companies meet OH&S requirements while moving heavy loads.

The stair-climber eliminates the need for manual tilting or turning when moving heavy loads on stairways. Apart from the clear OH&S benefits, the stair-climber reduces risk of damage to goods.

The battery-electric, rubber-tracked unit is operated by a handheld remote control and can be used to move items weighing up to 500kg. The remote control is used to gently tilt the item attached to the stair-climber until it is lying back against the stairs. The unit is then driven without manual effort to a landing, or the top or bottom of the stairs, where it is remotely tilted to an upright position and turned.

Sensitive Freight Solutions, which specialises in moving equipment for data centres recently used one of the new stair climbers from Kennards Lift & Shift to move a UPS unit. Managing Director Neville Cox says that the unit completely takes away the use of raw power, and reduces risk to the men using it.

Siaki Tautaiolefua, who operated the stair-climber pointed out that there was no need for manual tilting and turning as the remote control took care of the whole process.

Sensitive Freight Solutions regularly hires Kennards Lift & Shift’s specialist equipment to meet site challenges. Though most of their jobs have lift access, they use the stair-climbers for specific moving requirements. The company hires exclusively from Kennards Lift & Shift because of the assurance that the equipment is properly maintained and serviced.

Kennards Lift & Shift operates equipment hire centres in Perth, Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane and Townsville.
