    Nope. We're still scraping our knuckles on the ground and breaking our backs.

    The company that delivers boilers to our jobsites uses one. Believe it's a "stairking"

    I couldn't imagine taking a boiler out a basement without one. Not familiar with the particular one you listed.

    My must have go to is the StairCat by Escalara. It is awesome I can remove almost anything out of a basement by myself. With the fork attachment I'm also able to install a TT Excellence on a wall alone. The thing is great, the only down fall is ground clearance, it doesn't like lawn or gravel.

    We are on our second escalara. The hardest part is Letting Go of the money. There's no turning back once you own a stair climber. I also bought the forklift option. That was priceless as well. We don't use the forklift any more because we have a lift gate now
