INGENUITY – the Hercules advantage

Unlike other makes of stairclimber, during descending, the body of the Hercules PS does not move until the stopper wheels of the lifting unit have reached the next lower step. This gives both passenger and operator a much more confident feeling on the stairs.



Technical Data Applying to all models

Climbing speed: three speeds can be selected on the control cluster:

  • I = 10 steps per minute
  • II = 14 steps per minute
  • III = 18 steps per minute

Maximum step height:

205 to 230 mm (the maximum is achieved by tilting the stairclimber at a steeper angle)

Battery pack

Voltage and capacity: 24 VDC 5.2 Ah

Protection against overlanding:

  1. Mechanical overload protection (sliding hub)
  2. Electronic overload protection

Range per recharge:

This depends a lot on the weight of passengers and whether they are travelling up or down. However, between 300 and 500 steps can be specified as a rough guide. If the stairclimber is in constant use, (e.g. professional mobility services) then a replacement battery pack can be fitted at any time. A mobile charger is also available to rapidly charge the battery pack during the car journey.

Main wheels:

Non-marking grey tyres for extremely smooth operation. PS-Outdoor wheels have a diameter of 260mm. All other models have a diameter of 200mm (outer track width 297mm).

Support wheels:

Also feature non-marking grey tyres and are permanently braked. Diameter 80mm.

Rugged braking system



Robust automatic step brake wheels stop the Hercules PS reliably on the edge of the step. The wear-free brake lining inside the main wheel provides a secure hold for immediate braking.
