Posted by Lee Jeavons on Sun, Oct 07, 2012

As a first time vendor partner demonstrating our PowerMate® stair climbing hand trucks and interior tail gate lifts (LiftGates), we had the opportunity to meet with some old friends and made dozens of new ones in the desert. The Members interest in the PowerMate dolly was so great that neither Brad Budgell nor I had a chance to eat and were still doing lifting demonstrations and answering questions long after show hours! Thanks to all the BuyMax Members for your keen interest in PowerMate. We look forward to working with you and your companies for many years to come!

Save your customers money and make some yourself with PowerMate

Posted by Lee Jeavons on Wed, Jul 28, 2010


Do you rent equipment to contractors? If so, than take a moment to consider the advantages of renting a motorized hand truck. Most rental places charge a premium to rent a PowerMate because of its’ uniqueness and application specific uses. Many rental companies include a PowerMate rental when they rent other products like concrete polishers, generators, floor sanders, drain cleaners and other heavy loads because a PowerMate can lift loads on and off trucks and up and down stairs.

PowerMate motorized hand trucks are used extensively by HVAC contractors to move hot water heaters, AC units, furnaces, radiators, geothermal heat pumps and boilers for residential and commercial installations because, unlike a regular hand truck, the PowerMate protects the operator from lifting stain. A PowerMate does the grunt work and has the added benefit of saving contractors on labor costs. On average, a contractor can cut labor costs in half when using a PowerMate to move loads to the point of install. These are real, tangible benefits that contractors recognize and will respond to.
