letro-hand truck

wow, through a window! Take the tailgate off your pickup when using the thing, though. I borrowed ours to get a woodstove- moved it in by myself, but my tailgate bowed some (more than before) from the weight.

    just got a letro-hand truck like new from a friend. Traded him an older hand held threader. Has anyone ever used one of these. This thing must be 80Lbs.

    One thing , for sure....

    Always keep something handy as a counterweight when moving it . The thing is harder to move empty than with something on it .(the high battery placement makes it a handful)

    Always keep the battery charger around too! If you can find the one that hooks up to the truck battery with an extension cord, that helps too. (we had a charger plug hooked to a 25' cord , and ran it under the truck frame to the bed of a pickup)

    The only other advice I can give is to MAKE SURE all the stairways you try to use the truck on , will hold the weight ! Yes, we had to brace almost all the stairways we really needed it on . Once you get the hang of it , it will work with you . The first few times, it seems like more work than it's worth but it will become easier. Good luck! Chris.

    hand truck

    Are you talking about the orange stair climbing lecto-truck
    If so, it's a great tool, but where did you get one that weighs 80 lbs?? Mine is way heavier than that.....I'm a big guy and with a 4 section boiler on, I can put a half ton on a set of stairs, so ditto on the caution. Keep some 2x4 on board and brace stairs when in doubt.
    Also, the battery is a wheel chair type and can be purchased at any good battery shop...don't go to the maker of the hand truck for them...talk about high margins!!!!
    Practice a lot with it and you can do some amazing things with it. We once took a boiler out through a window with one. That was a real work saver as the boiler wouldn't go out the door!
