Bought this beautiful new IMDN Premium from Zach at flipnout pinball. I have had a lot of questions in my inbox of late of people asking how I use the escalera, so I decided why not combine this unboxing with a quick video of the start to finish process of using my escalera. My video skills are super basic so don't expect anything fancy. But it shows how I get the escalera down the steps, how quickly the forklift attachment is to add/remove, and how nice the pinball plate is so you can move your pin around where you need it. I can do the entire process by myself without any help at any point.

Now, off to go enjoy my new pin, if I can pry my wife away from it!

Great video! I eventually upgraded to the fork truck version with the pinball plate and it's invaluable.

I was just talking with somebody about that today. I wish I'd bought one back when times were great. Wouldn't need it a lot. But a blessing when you do.

Neat video!

Here's what I don't get. Everyone seems to have a game room in the basement but then people all freak out when you talk about having a game room upstairs. It's a flight of stairs up and one down either way...

Are they concerned about the weight maybe?

Great video , my set up to the basement is almost the same as yours. I have to back up in to the powder room to line up for stairs.

I don't have all the attachments you have.

Cool video. Makes moving pins by yourself safer and easier. Nice lineup of pins, have fun

If your upper floor can't hold a few thousand pounds of pins you have big problems!!!

ok thats pretty damn awesome Matt! Nicely done and I've never used the pinball plate like that so thanks for teaching me something new. You just transported a pin down a staircase and set it up entirely by yourself in no time.....without sweating or reaching for back in pain. Hahaha. Thanks for the video buddy!

If anyone would like to purchase one of these wonderful machines, please message us and we will get you taken care of.

Thanks for the video. Never thought about using it to set up the game, too. What a great tool.

Yea to note, on carpeting it is harder to move the escalera with the forklift and plate when lifting a pin around. On hardwood it's like butter of course, but on carpet you have to work at it. Just something to keep in mind!

You need the big wheels! They make rolling over carpet, small bumps, legos, etc super easy!

I have the big wheels.

Damn... if that video doesn’t sell some Escalaras, nothing will. I have the same setup, but without the large flat plate. I just use the forks from the side of the pin to lift for putting on the legs. Works just as good, but I can’t wheel it back into the final spot of course. But i have carpet and use furniture sliders, so easy peasy!!
