Jan's Blog
I was listening to the radio as I was driving to work this morning and they were talking about 'mature-aged people', meaning people in their 50s (mature-aged?), yes 50s, finding it difficult to find jobs .
One guy talked about his many years in the air conditioning business... no one wants to hire him at 56 as they think he might do his back in.
I thought to myself, why would you miss the opportunity to employ someone with all that experience when you can use a stairclimber or some sort of lifting device and benefit in so many ways - not just the avoidance of a back injury (which can happen to someone at any age by the way), but the many potential improvements in efficiencies for your business.
Terry started out in the photocopier industry and about 20 years ago discovered the wonderful world of stairclimbers - powered trolleys which can lift virtually anything up and down stairs.
So intrigued was he with these machines that he travelled to Europe and the U.S.A. and set up exclusive representative agreements for Australia and New Zealand with two manufacturing companies, who to this day remain our core suppliers. There's a lot to be said for long-standing, mutually beneficial commercial arrangements when the product is this good.
Terry now understands these machines inside and out. There is virtually nothing he doesn't know about them. Having an engineering mindset with remarkable technical/mechanical abilities helps of course, which, combined with many years of sales at the coalface of industries which benefit greatly from lifting equipment, is invaluable when it comes to assisting customers choose the right stairclimber for their business.
Not a week goes by that he's not out on the frontline either demonstrating, training, facilitating, consulting or problem-solving with a stairclimber. Last week he coordinated the move of a $1.5 million artifact - the removalist company was not equipped to take it down the many stairs from the home, it weighed over 500 kg, not to mention the object's value.
It's amazing to think there are so many of these ingenious machines all over Australia, helping people every day run their businesses more efficiently. One person using a stairclimber can lift what used to take up to 4 people to move up and down stairs. Apart from the cost saving (the machine pays for itself in no time), companies end up with happier employees - certainly with less back problems.
The stairclimbers can actually eliminate injuries and back problems in the workplace. Take a working environment - let's say a school. What can a Hercules Stairclimber do for a school? Think about what needs to be lifted during a typical school day. Filing cabinets, stacks of chairs, paper stocks, books, records, IT equipment, wheelie bins, canteen deliveries...
A stairclimber can lift heavy items off a truck or van and transport books, educational material, canteen deliveries, whatever the case may be, into resource rooms and other areas. A customer from an Elevator Company confirms 'our stairclimber has helped us tremendously because it has made our job much easier getting these large parts up and down stairwells, in and out of pickups.
In fact, I would say that it paid for itself the first time we used it. I think it's a very definite asset to any elevator company who does a lot of repair work and has to move armatures, drivers, large rotating equipment in and out of a machine room on a daily basis. It's a tremendous labour saving device. It saves a lot of money.'

It's a tremendous labour saving device. It saves a lot of money.'
A client from an Appliance company said 'it's a lot better than a helper. First it's always at work on time; second, it never talks back... seriously, we used to use a two-man crew. Now we have two one-man crews. We make more money and they make more money. It paid for itself in less than a year.'
Another Appliance company - 'This stairclimber paid for itself in less than two months. I don't see how an appliance dealer could get along without one. All of our customers marvel at our performance when we deliver.'
A customer from a Safe company - 'We now deliver heavy safes single-handedly with a minimum of effort. I couldn't get along without it. Great machine, saves money and the back.'
'Tremendous labour saving device... best investment I've ever made'.... the positive feedback is fantastic. We are really lucky to be in a business where we have so many satisfied customers. It helps that we have awesome distributors around Australia, that we provide servicing and repair back up nationwide and have readily available parts for all our stairclimbers. That's why the name Hercules is synonymous with lifting equipment. That's why Hercules Complete Lifting Solutions means just that - lifting solutions.

HAVE YOU CONSIDERED FINANCE FOR YOUR NEXT LIFTING DEVICE?

At Hercules we thrive on finding solutions to everyday materials handling problems.

We talk about the Hercules Stairclimbers and lifting equipment being tremendous labour saving devices.The wide range of models and accessories we offer allow us to serve any industry or application with maximum versatility ensuring your lifting device offers the most cost effective solution for your business.

We all know heavy loads are difficult loads. Especially up and down stairs. It really takes it out on your back and joints. There is an element of risk and accidents can occur. Sometimes you need two, three or even four people to get the job done.

But the Hercules stairclimbers eliminate these issues. Quite simply, you can transport heavy loads quickly and safely up and down stairs, saving time, manpower and money and enabling your business to comply with OH & S regulations, as well as taking the strain off those backs!

These ingenious lifting devices have a long life span and customers come back after 10 years or more wanting to upgrade their equipment or buy additional machines.

But there is an alternative to making such a substantial financial outlay up front.
The good news is that you can own one of these machines for as little as a few dollars a day!
Hercules Complete Lifting Solutions has a long, established association with an equipment finance company, Alliance Equipment Finance, who will set up financing catering to your specific needs, be it a rental, lease or hire purchase
option.

No capital outlay

Why not spread the cost of the equipment over the term of the agreement. Let the equipment generate income today and preserve your cash flow!

The finance option requires no initial capital expenditure.  By conserving your capital, you can use these funds for the running of your business or investment purposes.

Budgeting and Flexibility

Preparing accurate budgets becomes easier because of the fixed monthly payments.  Knowing exactly how much you will be paying each month makes it easier to plan, something not guaranteed by loans with variable rates.

Payments are fixed through the term of the agreement and are not affected by interest rate increases.

Structured payments can be arranged, for example paying quarterly, half yearly annually or upfront payments.

You have the flexibility to upgrade, add or delete equipment during the term

Tax and Accounting Benefits

Payments are 100% Tax Deductible providing the equipment is for Business Use. Under a hire purchase, the depreciation of the equipment and the interest component of the agreement are tax deductible.

Under a rental or lease, the monthly instalments are tax deductible. As rentals are treated as an operating expense, they may qualify as off balance sheet financing.  This results in avoiding the equity accounting calculations that is applicable to other forms of finance.

GST on monthly payments can be claimed through BAS statements.

End of Term Options

At the end of the agreement you will not risk being stuck with old technology
as there are numerous options available:

  • Upgrade to New Technology and return the old equipment
  • Continue month to month payment

So why not consider financing for your Hercules Stairclimber!

Testimonial FM 180B Furniture/Switchboard Mover
"The environment we work in is quite harsh and is considered Heavy Industry. These units have been given a very hard life and have stood up incredibly well. They have helped us remove and install several hundred switchboards and electrical panels in hard to get to locations, through galleries, tunnels, doorways and into tight spaces in congested switch rooms. The ease of use and manoeuvrability afforded by the units has significantly aided our team to drastically reduce installation time and save money, but the greatest advantage is easily the safety benefits derived from their use. The FM180B Units have all but eliminated our injuries and the risk of them occurring. They would have paid for themselves many times over in the time we have been using them". Dave, Sydney Water.

Our SAL 330 HD, now with folding handles (SAL 330 HD Fold), can carry loads of 330 kg up and down stairs.

This modular built, electric powered stairclimber has specially designed wheels with a unique braking system (with safety brake), combined with a well-balanced lifting system. Because it pushes off the lower step, it keeps a consistent balance throughout the lift making the SAL HD 330 safe, effective and easy to use.

Testimonial  FM 180B Furniture Mover
The environment we work in is quite harsh and is considered Heavy Industry. These units have been given a very hard life and have stood up incredibly well. They have helped us remove and install several hundred switchboards and electrical panels in hard to get to locations, through galleries, tunnels, doorways and into tight spaces in congested switch rooms. The ease of use and manoeuvrability afforded by the units has significantly aided our team to drastically reduce installation time and save money, but the greatest advantage is easily the safety benefits derived from their use. The FM180B Units have all but eliminated our injuries and the risk of them occurring. They would have paid for themselves many times over in the time we have been using them.
