Makinex launches new Powered Hand Truck PHT-140

Makinex are pleased to announce the release of their newest innovative construction product, the Powered Hand Truck PHT-140 that enables safer and more efficient materials handling.

The PHT-140 is a revolutionary product in the materials handling industry, offering warehouse and work site managers with an innovative solution that not only increases productivity, but also address the impending safety issues when it comes to manual handling.

Makinex have designed and developed a universal materials handling solution that enables one person operation to safely lift and load small equipment or bulky goods weighing up to 140kg (309lbs).

It provides a quick and easy alternative to using a forklift or tailgate loader for small loads. For many tradespeople and contractors, this means the elimination of awkward and dangerous one or two person lifts as well as significantly reduced risk of back injury which ultimately leads to decreased lost time injury.

“One of the key benefits of the PHT-140 is its versatility,” said Paul Weaver, International Sales Manager of Makinex.

“The PHT-140 has many applications and can be used in workshops, warehouses, depots, distribution companies and hire and rental yards. With this in mind, Makinex have specifically researched, developed and pre-tested the product to ensure maximum performance and reliability as well as operator safety.”

The unique design enables one person operation to lift and load directly into vehicles (trucks, vans, utes and cars) or to place equipment and small loads on bench tops. It is both lightweight and easy to manoeuvre, and can be folded down for easy transport and storage, which is essential for high traffic work areas.

The new product launch is also in step with Makinex’s recent company and brand name change.

In developing the new name, Makinex (previously Work Smart Equipment) closely reviewed the business in terms of its innovative product design, development and distribution.

The Makinex philosophy is to make inefficiencies extinct, where the name itself comes from this driving force.

Since 2004, Makinex have strived towards continuous improvement by developing unique, innovative and practical product solutions that provide contractors and tradespeople with a better way to do their jobs to save time, physical effort and money.

The PHT-140 is currently available at various dealer outlets in Australia. Furthermore, all Makinex products are supported by manufacturer’s warranty, local spare parts and service networks.
