Powered stair climbers are an essential piece of kit for moving, and if you don’t know much about it, it can make you hard to make a decision.
And that’s why I wanted to spend some time discussing our XSTO stair climber ZW4170D and show you what it offers.
Great, let’s get started!
Things To Consider When Buying Powered Stair Climber
When you are spending money on a new powered stair climber, you need to know what to consider before splashing your cash. In this section, I want to spend some time explaining the top considerations:
What’s Your Budget?
Understanding how much you have to spend before you look at products is an important aspect to consider. Before you start looking, define how much you’re willing to pay and go from there; it will help in the long run.
What Equipment Do You Move?
Powered stair climbers are very efficient at moving different styles of cargo:
- Oil Drum
- Home Appliance
But here’s the thing:
Not all powered stair climbers can carry everything; they all have their specialties. Think about what you move the most and go for a powered stair climber that can carry out the job.
How Heavy Is The Powered Stair Climber Your Carrying?
Again, you need to think about how heavy the cargo that you carry are. Overloading an electric stair climber is a recipe for disaster. Always go for a stair climbing hand truck that can carry more weight than you need.
How Many Floors Do You Climb Per Day?
Powered stair climbers run off battery power, and if you’re constantly going upstairs, there’s a chance that it will run out halfway through a job. Think about how many floors you climb a day, and see if the powered stair climber can handle it on one charge.
How Easy Is It To Transport?
Transporting items in a van can be challenging due to the lack of space. Having a powered stair climber that’s lightweighted and foldable can make it a lot easier to transport.

But, it’s not just the speed of the stair climber you should be thinking about. You also need to think about the stairs corner it can actually maneuver.
The stairs’ height must be smaller than 21 CM if you want to navigate the stairs safely without the fear of support arms failing.
And when it comes to width, the staircase must be over 25 CM for the stair climber to fit. But of course, the space may have to be bigger depending on what you’re transporting.
