Model Information

Manufacturer
Model Name
Vesta

Designed for the homeowner who prefers a sleek and elegant looking stair lift, the AmeriGlide Vesta Stair Lift is budget friendly and can be purchased new, used or reconditioned. 


Overview

The durable rack and pinion design of the AmeriGlide Vesta Stair Lift offers a safe and smooth ride up and down your stairs, and requires very minimal maintenance for the user. Built for straight stairs, this lift features a sleek and elegant design to blend in naturally with your home. It also folds up to a slim 14 inches when not in use so that everyone still has access to the stairs without it being in the way. This lift will take you to the top or bottom of the stairs smoothly at a gentle speed of 20 feet per minute.


Features

One of the neatest features of the AmeriGlide Vesta is the constant charging system along the rail which draws power constantly through the rail to recharge the battery. Since it is battery operated, this unit will continue operating during a power outage for a limited number of uses. The shock absorbent seat assembly includes a padded chair, backrest and armrests to allow for a smooth and gentle transit up and down the stairs. This unit stair lift offers a maximum weight capacity of 300 pounds.


Additional Information

Several safety features keep the AmeriGlide Vesta safe for you, children, pets, other household members and visitors. Sensors in the footrest and carriage stop the unit if there is an obstruction on the stairs. This lift will not operate unless the seat is locked in the proper position and the seatbelt is engaged. Upper and lower limit switches ensure that the lift comes to a complete stop at the top and bottom of the stairway.

Very Sturdy

It's not broken down to this point, but will update my review in the event that I have problems. Very sturdy design. Doesn't feel cheap like the one my sister purchased.

Looks like an alien

Had a few issues with it at first, but they've been taken care of by the company that I purchased it from. It's a funny looking thing, I told my wife it kind of looks like something you'd see in space.

Unreliable

I have been using this unit for over one year. The unit is very unreliable - it frequently stops for no apparent reason, sometimes several times during one ride. This is likely a result of a faulty electronic board, as the connectors and switches. seem to work properly. I contacted Ameriglide about this problem several times, and each time I was redirected to another number that turned out to be a recording. They never called me back. I do not recommend this company and this product.
