Lifting in construction without assistance puts huge strain on your legs and back, and it’s not sustainable for weeks on the job, with no time to rest. Beyond this, actually injuring your back can leave you in real difficulty, unable to work in the immediate and long-term difficulties are always a concern with back injuries. Currently in the UK, the average claim for a back injury is around £8,000.00 so there is considerable consequences for the employer & employee in regards to bad methods of manual handling.

The Powered Hand Truck available on our website uses the principles of balance and leverage to ensure safe lifting and moving of heavy, bulky and fragile objects and materials of up to 140kg by just one person. Safety is always of paramount importance to us at Multiquip and this bit of kit allows you to work safer and faster, transporting what needs to go around site without the need for motor-powered equipment or risking your own personal safety.

The Makinex Powered Hand Truck is currently in use on sites all over the world, protecting workers from bad backs and injuries globally, and in the UK Multiquip are the exclusive providers of this market-leading technology in the UK. Lifting in construction can be very dangerous if not done properly, and the powered hand truck that we supply protects you on-site.
