Of you type "stair climber" into the search function you will find out about these type of devices. Not sure if this is the kind of info you are looking for or not, hope it helps.

My old boss had one......







The water heater lifter's name was Matt and the boss found him on the farm where he bought hay for the horses. The boss saw Matt slinging bales of hay like they were nothing, put two and two together, offered $10 bucks per hour, and I had a new apprentice. My back was never happier.....

You can't beat an 18 year old farm boy for heavy lifting.

One of the members sent me one to try out. I can't remember his name. We use it a lot.

Appliance dolly... Enough said. Strap that bad boy to it and the back of the dolly is fitted with belt rollers for easy stair climbing, a must have on 50 gallon installs by yourself.

how does a "water heater lifter" differ from an appliance dolly?

I've never seen a HWT lifter before, what's it like?

I use the magna cart collapsable dolly from HD. It was 39.99, fits behind my back seat and trade it in for a new one every year. Not for weaklings though, lifting a 60 up stairs requires long strong arms and back that can go ALL night
