powered stair climbing hand trucks



How long does the battery last?
We measure our battery life by the amount of steps that can be climbed with a fully charged battery. Typically with a well maintained battery that is fully charged you will get the approximate lifting capacity outlined below:
  • 500 lbs. = 450 steps
  • 1,000 lbs. = 350 steps
  • 1,500 lbs. = 100 steps

Can the Lectro Truck go off the back of a truck?
The Lectro Truck can be used in the place of a tail lift gate provided your truck isn't more than 41" from the ground to the bed of your truck. If you have more than 41" a small platform can be made to achieve the appropriate height.

How much weight will the Lectro Truck lift?
The maximum capacity:
  • 4512E - 600 lbs.
  • 5512E - 1,200 lbs.
  • 1260E - 1,500 lbs.
  • 1268E - 1,500 lbs.
  • 6512E - 1,500 lbs.

Why do my wheels keep rolling towards the front of the step?
The wheels on the Lectro Truck will roll forward for two reasons. One reason might be that the step is too deep. When you go to raise the load up to the next step if the wheels are too far back on the step the inner frame will ride on the edge of the step and pull the Lectro Truck forward. To correct this problem you need to put a spacer such as a 2" x 4" at the back of the step to prevent the wheels from going too far back on the step. A second reason why your Lectro Truck might roll towards the front of the step is because the load that is on the Lectro Truck is too low and heavy. The way to correct this problem is by using the balance box accessory. This moves the weight up on the Lectro Truck to equally distribute the weight and balance the load better. A third reason your Lectro Truck wheels will roll towards the front of the step is because the step might be slanting forward. To correct this problem we now have wheel brakes that attach to the Lectro Truck wheel and prevent the wheels from rolling forward.

What if I need to rest in the middle of the step with a 1500 lb. load on my Lectro Truck?
With the inner/outer frame system such as the Lectro Truck you are able to let go of the handles once the wheels and the toe plate are positioned on the steps. Unlike other kinds of hand trucks you can remove your hands from the handles once the load is balanced on the steps.

What happens if my battery goes dead in the middle of my move?
If your battery should go dead in the middle of your move with the Lectro Truck balanced on the steps, you can get another battery or Portable Power Pack and change it in the middle of your move. The 5512E and 6512E comes with a Portable Power Pack. To change the Portable Power Pack just unplug the pack, unhook two side clips, pull it out of the frame and insert a new Portable Power Pack, (additional Portable Power Packs can be purchased.)
