What is the RETURN on a PowerMate®:

Independent Research and PowerMate® Customers validate the typical payback period in labor and time savings alone is 2.2 months with PowerMate® delivering a 10:1 Return on Investment (R.O.I) by the end of the first year. With proper care and following the recommended routine maintenance instructions a PowerMate® can last for years and years!

The life expectancy of a PowerMate® does vary greatly depending on the frequency of use, the weight of the loads moved and like anything else, the care taken of the equipment.  An average life expectancy of 5-10 years is not uncommon. Today, some of the  PowerMate® stair climbers L P International Inc. sold the first year it opened its  doors, over  35 years ago, are still being used!

Today, many PowerMate® safety conscious customers consider PowerMate® as a piece of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE). What price would you put on: Your back?
