    Different manufacturer, but if the dimensions match, the Italian Flue chart should be pretty close.

    There is a 7-section one that may or may not be for sale. I want it, but if it weighs 50lbs per section like an Italian Flue, and I have to carry 350 lbs up a winding staircase to the third floor...

    Man... this is a nice rad!

    Getting stuff up and down the stairs is another matter all together. Check the widths, you may be able to use the hand truck. Tool rental places have them. You'll have to prep the move like crazy: protect any stairs, landings and alike with some heavy duty cardboard, or even plywood on furniture pads. On stair threads, cardboard hot-glued or tacked to the stair treads to avoid damage there, or carpet scraps tacked on or with a sticky rubber backing. If there are tight corners, you can use thin rigid plastic sheet to slide it around corners (manufacturers of the hand trucks recommend it like so). Key is prep.

    I recently moved the below, by my self, using the steps climber hand truck. My 2 workers ordered from the local day work place didn't show up. At any rate, I planned it out, prepped the hoist, and took my time, securing loads to the truck, and dragging it as much as possible on furniture pads before they had to go up and down stairs. The thing never left the ground.

    The hand truck was under 200 bucks for the day rental. It wasn't cheap to rent but worth every last penny. Luckily no corners to navigate with these two, and the big rad came from just inside the front door, walked (dragged) down a ramp I built to the porch before being strapped and moved with the hand truck.

    Don't give up on such a nice rad! You may be able to get it cheaper due to having to move it. However, if you can't execute the move safely yourself, do not attempt. Better to hire it out to pro movers.
