L-1 with Big Wheel attachment

PowerMate Docking Station for security and charging

The PowerMate docking station is the ideal place to store and charge your PowerMate overnight. Store your PowerMate accessories and lock your station for security purposes.

Do you sometimes find yourself in a tight spot? Add a Step Extension and Pivot Pad to your PowerMate purchase!

The Pivot Pad is made of durable material which allows you to turn the PowerMate, with its load, on a dime.

Do you work in older housing stock?

The Step extension in effect gives you that 'extra' step that you wish you had when backed into a corner on tight landings. Because the PowerMate stair climber has the ability to 'skip' a step or two, the step extension allows installers maximum flexibility when working in older housing stock that have narrow, tight stairwells.

The PowerMate L-1 is manufactured to high standards for quality and durability. Your PowerMate is one tough machine built to perform in a demanding environment. Follow the link to a list of PowerMate L-1 technical specifications.

PowerMate L-1 Stair Climbing Hand Truck


PowerMate 3-dots

We love our PowerMate and you will too!

The PowerMate L-1 Stair Climbing Hand Truck is the ideal machine for safely moving loads up to 650 lbs. and can easily move appliances, residential AC units, hot water tanks, gas cylinders, geothermal units and furnaces, office machines and filing cabinets and countless other everyday loads that would otherwise take two or more people to more without a PowerMate. PowerMate safety lifting devices provide a range of advantages over non-powered moving options and the competition.

The PowerMate L-1 Advantage

  1. Manufactured to high standards, extremely reliable machine. Provides excellent value for money as well as the lowest total cost of ownership in the industry.

  2. Four machines in one: a powered stair climber; a powered tailgate lift; a loading dock leveler and a well-balanced dolly.

  3. A powerful labor saving device that can help reduce costs and contribute to profitability.

    Move white goods

  4. Reduces property and product damage over other moving methods.

  5. Contributes to your image of professionalism.

  6. Backed by superior customer service and training.

  7. Contributes to jobsite safety, reduces injuries and claims.

  8. Reduces the physical effort to move heavy loads by 87%

  9. Heavy loads can be moved using half the labor.

The PowerMate® L-1 is manufactured to high standards with extruded aluminum and no welds to fail. The battery is the best performing in the industry, utilizing a state of the art charging system. The L-1 will move a 500 lb. load up and down 20 flights of stairs on a single charge! A typical battery life is 4 -7 years.

Every consideration was given to make your PowerMate® the most ergonomically friendly lifting device on the market. For example, all our operator controls are strategically positioned on the top of the machine between the hand grips.

The PowerMate® L-1 has quality features unlike any other on the market. The L-1 has a hardened steel drive screw that is perfectly matched with the motor and battery to provide the best combination of strength, durability and efficiency. The spring lock safety device in the ball nut provides additional drive system security.

The wheels on a PowerMate® lift up and out of the way reducing the overall footprint of the machine – ideal in a tight spot like narrow stairwells and landings. This feature is also why you are able to break back the load with such relative ease; with the wheels out of the way, the effort to pull the load back onto the wheels is dramatically reduced. All PowerMate® stair climbers have this unique feature, including the L-1. Once the machine and load are back onto the wheels, you are now in a well-balanced position - with no effort required to keep the load that way! You can even let go of the machine at this point! Very handy on stairwells for example if you should have to open a door or even answer your phone. This is impossible with a regular hand truck and is a major advantage to owning a PowerMate®.

All PowerMates are manufactured with solid state controls which reduce the draw on the battery adding to your daily operating life as well as extending the life of the battery overall. Another advantage of solid state controls (unique in the industry) is the "soft start" feature. This further increases safety by reducing sudden movements during start up resulting in the smoother operation of the machine. The new controls also make servicing and maintenance as easy as 1-2-3!

All of these quality features contribute to the lowest total cost of ownership on the market.

The L-1 is a powered stair climber eliminating the need to exert physical effort lifting heavy loads up stairs. No more back strain. PowerMate stair climbers are able to handle any type of stair and are even able to skip missing or broken stairs. The L-Series PowerMates are extremely durable and with regular maintenance will last for decades!

moving furnaces

The L-1 has a 40" lift and can easily raise and lower the load onto truck and van beds. The heavy duty reinforced straps ensure the load is well secured during the move. The strap bar can be adjusted anywhere along the frame for different load types.

PowerMate Tailgate with water heater

The L-1 is extremely versatile and can be equipped with a range of accessories including a hot water tank attachment.

Moving hot water heaters

We understand your need to protect your clients' property and for that reason all PowerMates come with a full length bottom rubber guard that is proven to protect all surfaces.

PowerMate L-1 is a work horse

The PowerMate L-1 is a real work horse. Property managers love it's versatility and the fact that loads in this weight class can be moved by just one person. The L-1 is easy to use. Loads can be moved by a wider range of workers including older workers or workers with physical limitations. A PowerMate can help a previously injured worker re-integrate back into the workforce and PowerMates are often used for this purpose.

Applications of all sizes are easily moved by one person with the L-1 PowerMate Stair Climber. Commercial or Sub-zero appliances are moved with the larger M-2B PowerMate due to the extra lifting capacity, height and rear placement of the hand grips.

The 3-stage charging profile extends battery life and is independent of vehicle system voltage. Comes with accessory port plug.
