Like practicing with a Staircat!!!!

I want to buy the Step Edge Detection System for the staircat but at I can't remember exactly 650$?. Even with that in this situation I probably didn't have enough room.

It'll take a long time before I make money with water heaters.

.dont be a pussey..


you dont need that edje thingy....

all you got to do is learn how to dance with the stair cat......just use it a few times and you will get used to it.... I dont know how old or beat up yours actually is but it just takes a little while to get comfortable with it...


The new one I got from e-bay kicks ass and I can fly up and down stairs with shag carpeting on them with a 75 gallon power vent . We did 2 75 gallon units on Friday ......


the only thing you really need is a heavy piece of trip wood to set up at the entrances and exists of every job so you dont have to fight that lip at the doorways......

that is the only place I have EVER had difficulty with my stair cat.. getting over that 2 inch hump at the doorways....

I have been wanting to get a piece of oakwood at Lowes to keep in my truck for this specific reason..... I will probably do it today... ..

good luck ....

Good news I received the staircat at noon and I was glad it wasn't stolen along the way. The UPS driver thought my reinforced front door was for show. Nope.

The bad news : Anyway the bad news as I took the wrapping off I noticed 2 missing feet and I was like this can't be f_ck_ng happening. The baterry was completely out upside down. I saw missing strap hooks to hold it down. I got some from a rubber bungee in my garage and reshaped the bracket. Then the bolt to the battery terminal were missing, I went and found some in the garage.

So I tried to use it a little, the battery was almost dead and I was hearing this clanking, so I pulled the cover off to see the motor adjustment bolt had jumped out and was all bent. I went and replaced it with something new. Then as I'm cleaning the chains I see it has been cut and that's why in the listing the foot was crooked. The seller assured me nothing was wrong with it. Now I was mad!

I was thinking this is going to be hell as good luck getting a resolution and protection from ebay or paypal.

I went online found some parts list, called the authorized dealer, got some prices and sent a message to the seller with pics of the cost of parts for 2 new chains and feet.

Good news : He responded he hadn't verified the lift in person but he refunded the amount it's going to cost for parts 470$CAD!!! No questions asked. I'll be ordering them tomorrow morning, several more weeks before I get them in the mail so I can replace them.

I'm eating the shipping for the parts but at least he didn't argue. That's a relief.

Now I'm off to write a side story in the soap thread. What a day!



.
Did mark beat the hell out of this thing with his channellocks??? This thing has been dropped and has been used with way to heavy stuff,get rid of it
