The Makinex Powered Hand Truck (PHT) is a universal materials handling solution that enables one person to safely lift and load small equipment or bulky goods weighing up to 140kg. It provides a quick and easy alternative to using a fork lift or tailgate loader and can be used in workshops, warehouses, factories, depots, distribution companies and rental yards.

  • The Power Hand Truck features powered lift via a 12V 25A linear actuator. The Lifting arm reach is controlled by the user through lifting or lowering the handles, with the arm height being controlled via a simple thumb switch.
  • The unique design enables one person to lift and load directly onto a truck, van or utility vehicle. Or to place equipment and small loads onto bench tops where they can be worked on. It eliminates the awkward and dangerous one to two person lifts and reduces the risk of muscle strains and back injuries from heavy lifting.  
  • The sturdy PHT is surprisingly light and easy to maneuver. After use it is quickly folded down flat for easy transportation on a truck or storage. It comes with a hook attachment for lifting, moving and loading small equipment and machinery such as water pumps, generators, air compressors, plate compactors etc.
  • Several optional attachments (sold separately) are available for the handling of different types of objects. These include a fork-lift, Glass sucker, Sling and Strap frame attachment.
