Default Stairs and Landing & Water Heaters

I wonder how I can manage the landing at the bottom because I think when I descend with the stair cat the water heater will be jammed against the wall and I may not be able to turn the staircat 90 degree to descend the last step or even get the stair cat out under the heater. It's a 40 CND gallon so I can put some of my copy cat handles and lift it as a last resort but a 60 gallon, forget about it.

Any ideas?

Bid $50 high and tell them they can save $50 to help you bring down and up the heaters. Win, win, win!

That's what we used to do when we did gas water heaters when I was an apprentice, slide them down with the box. I'd forgotten about that one.

I guess the guy is a sailor!

Anyways I found out he was just price shopping. No problem I have a 60 gallon install tomorrow at a even higher price. She couldn't schedule me fast enough.

I don’t see the problem...
slide it down the stairs, stand it up, or slide out the bottom at the landing.

What about bringing the old one out if the landing doesn't fit the heater and staircat at the same time? An old one could weight about 180 pounds or more.


Also I've been in several houses lately doing service jobs and noticing it would be impossible for me alone to bring one downstairs or back up. The stairs are too narrow or the L shape too small. Now I ask pictures because I'm not going to go out there and realize I can't do the job.
