Reduce the impact of heavy lifting on your body

The Powered Hand Truck is a universal materials handling solution that enables one person to safely to lift up to 140kg, and has the potential to reduce shoulder, back and neck injuries by up to 34%

Working in logistics and warehousing means you need to be organised, efficient and safe.

Australian company; Makinex pride themselves on making inefficiencies extinct, and looking after your staff whilst they are handling materials.

This has been proven by the Powered Hand Truck winning design and innovation awards on three continents over the last couple of years.

Last year creativity, innovation and design came together, winning Makinex construction products’ Powered Hand Truck (PHT) Safe Work Australia’s Award for Good Design in May 2016.

Also winning the UK Innovation Trail award in 2016 and most recently the USA RER Gold Award.

“A focus on health and safety in design helps eliminate hazards and risks before they enter the workplace. Good design can radically transform the workplace in ways that benefit the business, workers, clients and others in the supply chain” said Safe Work Australia Chief Executive Officer, Ms Michelle Baxter.

Working in an environment that demands lifting heavy materials can be hard on the body, so having the right tools for the job is essential, having a quick and easy alternative to using a forklift or tailgate loader with no need for a licence means you can utilise your staff where they’re needed most. The Powered Hand Truck has multiple attachments, with the hook coming as standard, forklift ideal for lifting pallets, strap frame ideal for lifting bins, gas bottles, a sling and net attachment and glass sucker can all easily be attached to the PHT making it a great asset in any lifting environment.

Every employer wants to ensure they are getting the most out of their workforce, and by increasing staff efficiency from a three-person job down to a one-person job, reducing their risk of injury and not having to have a licence, allows any workplace needing to move materials to become safer and more efficient.

Darren of Kennard’s Hire says’ “We use the Makinex Powered Hand Truck at our branch to lift & load equipment. It is a fantastic product we use it all day, every day. This piece of equipment is saving us costs & preventing injuries.”
