What’s a hot commodity this time of year? PowerMate’s very own LE-1 Stair Climbing Hand Truck. As this is the time of year when wood and gas stoves, gas fireplaces, and alternative stoves are more commonly moved and installed, our LE-1 finds a good niche. From March 13th through March 16th, we’ll be exhibiting our PowerMate LE-1 Stair Climbing Hand Truck at the Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Expo 2013 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida. The PowerMate LE-1 is very popular with gas fitters and anyone doing wood, pellet or gas stove installations because it’s ideally suited for moving wood stoves.
How can we make our products easier to use and our services more accessible for our clients? Customers and potential customers alike have often posed questions on how our equipment works, how to properly maintain the equipment, and how to get copies of the product manuals. These frequent inquiries resulted in us thinking about how we could further make our company—and our products—more customer friendly. What was the result? Electronic product , available on our website, which are continuously updated, so that our customers have the most current and accurate product information.
If you have been reading the articles in this blog you may already be familiar with some of the reasons for using a PowerMate®. Labor savings and safety are two big reasons customers agree are important. But did you also know that there are less tangible benefits to using a PowerMate stair climber for residential and commercial deliveries? Your technicians, the ones most likely to be using the machines on a regular basis, will thank you for making their job easier and safer.
The fact that you also bought the machine to improve your bottom line is incidental to them. From the technician’s perspective they will notice right away the difference in the physical effort required to move product in and out of buildings. They will be less tired at the end of the day, less prone to injury, less likely to make errors due to fatigue, more likely to show up for work without muscle aches and generally enjoy their job more knowing they have this powerful tool to back them up day after day.

Moving and installing built-in appliances is problematic for a number of reasons. By their very nature built-ins are designed for a residential installation and yet are often commercial-sized appliances. Built-in fridges and stoves are high value items that often have much of their delicate components exposed. Built-in fridges are heavier than standard fridges and taller as well. The risk of damaging either the product or the customer’s property is higher when moving a built-in appliance; it is heavier and more awkward to move and there is usually less clearance. All this makes the job for the installer much harder than moving a standard white good.
The powermate.info website now has new content, more pictures and more opportunities for views to get intouch with PowerMate Solution Specialists. This redesign is part of our ongoing efforts to provide quality information to PowerMate customers on the benefits to safety and profitability of using our products.
