Our PowerMate LE-1 Stair Climbing Hand Truck is Heating Up…

Posted by Contributing Editor on Thu, Jan 31, 2013

What’s a hot commodity this time of year? PowerMate’s very own LE-1 Stair Climbing Hand Truck. As this is the time of year when wood and gas stoves, gas fireplaces, and alternative stoves are more commonly moved and installed, our LE-1 finds a good niche. From March 13th through March 16th, we’ll be exhibiting our PowerMate LE-1 Stair Climbing Hand Truck at the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Expo 2013 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The PowerMate LE-1 is very popular with gas fitters and anyone doing wood, pellet or gas stove installations because it’s ideally suited for moving wood stoves.

A Question of Compliance

Posted by Carl Nattrass on Tue, Apr 05, 2011

We recently spoke with a customer that bought a PowerMate to enhance jobsite safety. The company in question had been using a regular non-powered hand truck for water heater deliveries and wanted something to help offset the lost-time injuries they had been experiencing of late. (Moving water heaters can be back-breaking work, especially removing old water heaters encrusted with calcium from local hard water.)

A Good Ergonomics Strategy Makes Good Business Sense

Posted by Carl Nattrass on Wed, Oct 20, 2010

The value of a good ergonomics strategy goes beyond health and safety. A good ergonomics strategy can add value to your company’s business and ultimately contribute to your goals of higher profits. An ergonomics strategy can affect profit drivers like cost minimization, productivity, quality, delivery reliability, responsiveness to customer demands and flexibility. The evidence for a good ergonomics strategy is abundant in countless studies in North America and Europe that clearly illustrate the connection between profitability and healthy working conditions. Larger organizations take ergonomics seriously and have been at this game long enough to know where to look for ‘bottom line’ benefits.

Save your customers money and make some yourself with PowerMate

Posted by Lee Jeavons on Wed, Jul 28, 2010

 

Do you rent equipment to contractors? If so, than take a moment to consider the advantages of renting a motorized hand truck. Most rental places charge a premium to rent a PowerMate because of its’ uniqueness and application specific uses. Many rental companies include a PowerMate rental when they rent other products like concrete polishers, generators, floor sanders, drain cleaners and other heavy loads because a PowerMate can lift loads on and off trucks and up and down stairs.

PowerMate motorized hand trucks are used extensively by HVAC contractors to move hot water heaters, AC units, furnaces, radiators, geothermal heat pumps and boilers for residential and commercial installations because, unlike a regular hand truck, the PowerMate protects the operator from lifting stain. A PowerMate does the grunt work and has the added benefit of saving contractors on labor costs. On average, a contractor can cut labor costs in half when using a PowerMate to move loads to the point of install. These are real, tangible benefits that contractors recognize and will respond to.

An Ergonomic Strategy for Moving Bottom Heavy Loads

Posted by Carl Nattrass on Fri, Jul 09, 2010

Moving bottom heavy loads like concrete grinders, wood or pellet stoves, electric motors or batteries takes special care. When using a PowerMate stair climber the operator uses the wheels as the pivot point when extending or retracting the toe plate. If all the weight is at one end, it makes it harder for the operator to pivot the load. PowerMate has come up with two neat solutions for this problem, one very simple, other more high-tech. Both work equally well.
