PowerMate LE-1 Stair Climbing Hand Truck
We love our PowerMate and you will too!
The PowerMate LE-1 is our "Stacker" stair climber and is unique in the PowerMate lineup. The LE-1 has two drive screws instead of one which provides distinct advantages for certain applications as the toe plate can move up and down along the frame.
By moving the load along the frame you change the balance of the machine. This is particularly useful for small, heavy loads like wood stoves, compressors, electric motors or barrels. The effort to move loads up stairs can then be greatly reduced with almost zero weight on the hand grips. The LE-1 also comes standard with hand operated wheel brakes which means the unit cannot roll forward unless you release the brake.
The other distinct advantage is the stacker feature of the dual drive screw design. The LE-1 has the ability to raise the load and place it on a raised surface. Again, this feature is very handy for placing wood stoves onto hearths, vending or gaming machines onto counter tops or any load that needs to be raised onto a surface.
All PowerMate stair climbers have the ability to raise loads up onto surfaces, like truck beds for example. They do this by raising the wheels (which extends the frame) up onto the raised surface; from there it is simply a matter of closing the machine to bring up the load. With an LE-1 however, you can raise just the load without having to bring the PowerMate up with it.
The LE-1 has a lifting capacity of 700 lbs. and can move all the same types of loads such as appliances, hot water tanks, AC units, geothermal units, furnaces, drain cleaners and of course wood stoves, barrels, electric motors or other heavy loads.

The PowerMate LE-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 LE-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 LE-1 has quality features unlike any other on the market. The LE-1 has two hardened steel drive screws that are perfectly matched with the motors and batteries to provide the best combination of strength, durability and efficiency. The integrated load locking safety feature 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 LE-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 LE-1 is a powered tailgate lift eliminating the need for ramps and unlike a regular tailgate lift, the LE-1 stores inside your vehicle and can move loads right to the point of install.
We understand your need to protect your clients' property and for that reason, all PowerMate stair climbers come with bottom rubber guards that are proven to protect all surfaces!
The LE-1 is the only PowerMate with dual drive screws that allow for the load to be balanced dynamically, during the move.
The LE-1 is ideal for moving small boilers because of its ability to 'centre balance' the load on the frame by raising the toe plate. This is a very handy feature for small but heavy loads like boilers or wood stoves.
The PowerMate LE-1 is purpose built for the patio and hearth industry. The ability to easily balance the load during transit and the ability to stack loads are features required by our clients in this sector - Unique to PowerMate!
Wood stoves are compact bottom heavy loads, just the type of weight LE-1's are designed for. The load can be centred along the frame making the effort required to operate the machine on stairs reduced - ideal for older or smaller operators.
