Description

Acorn 80 Stairlift (with three right angle turns and double landing)

We are selling my late Father's Acorn 80 stairlift which is currently installed and able to be seen working and tested, however buyer will have to de-install following the sale and arrange collection and re-installation and re-programming. One of the batteries requires replacing and the stairlift is running on a temporary battery for demonstration purposes.

As this model of stairlift track fixes down on the stair treads and floor there is no requirement to drill the walls. This installation includes lower "home" charging point and a short flight up two treads to a lower turn, then one 90deg turn at the bottom and two 90deg turns at the top plus a long length of straight "track" up the stairs ( see photos) with a second re-charging point at the top of the stairlift track, however as the track is modular this could be re-arranged to meet many different requirements.

The seat "at rest" is designed to be easy to get on and off and also swivels in either direction operated by large easy to access levers on either side of the seat squab. Also included are 2 remote controls and a manual operating "key" plus the battery charger and handbook. The charger was replaced about 18 months ago. The stairlift has been regularly maintained and serviced by a local Leicester stairlift specialist. However as stated above, it's not been used in the last 9 months other than to check it's still working and one of the 12v batteries has died so we've connected a temporary battery to allow testing.

The control switch on the arm of the stairlift ( see photos) has been altered to make it more easily operated by a user with weak/arthritic hands unlike the original "rocker switch"..
