Makinex hand truck lifts the safety bar

The Makinex Powered Hand Truck PHT-140 is a universal materials handling solution that enables one person operation to safely lift and load small equipment or bulky goods.

The PHT offers warehouse and work site managers an innovative solution that not only increases productivity, but also addresses manual handling workplace safety issues.

Its unique design enables one person operation to safely lift and load small equipment or bulky goods weighing up to 140kg.

The Makinex Powered Hand Truck provides a quick, 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. It also significantly reduces the risk of back injury, which ultimately leads to decreased lost time injury.

One of the key benefits of the PHT is its versatility. It is ideal for workshops, warehouses, depots, distribution companies and rental yards.

The PHT is lightweight and easy to use. It can be folded down for easy transport and storage, which is essential for high traffic work areas.

The PHT comes standard with a hook attachment for lifting, moving and loading small equipment and machinery fitted with a lifting eye, such as water pumps, generators, air compressors and plate compactors.

A fork attachment for pallets and skids is optional and sold separately.
