International Winners – PHT 140

POWERED HAND TRUCK (PHT-140) REACHES UK AND WINS AWARD

AT THE UK EXECUTIVE HIRE SHOW 2016
Morris Site Machinery and Makinex who partnered earlier this year in the UK won the Innovation Trail Award over the weekend for the Makinex Powered Hand Truck at the UK Executive Hire Show 2016.

Stealing the spotlight at the show was the exclusive ‘Makinex’ range of products. Known for ‘Making Inefficiencies Extinct’ the range was primarily built for the Australian hire market, but has now been introduced to the UK market with great success.

Chris Morris Chief Executive of Morris Site Machinery said: “When we first saw the Makinex range in Australia we knew it could work well for our hire market, particularly with the growing legislation on Health and Safety and the drive for more efficient products.

“Winning this award at the Executive Hire Show is testament to all the creativity, hard work and development by Rory Kennard and the Makinex team – and to our own team here who have really got behind these new products.

“This accolade firmly plants the Makinex name in the UK hire market and I am delighted to report that we have been inundated with enquiries about the Hand Powered Truck since the Show.”

The Makinex Powered Hand Truck is a first-to-UK market, universal materials handling solution that enables one person to safely lift and load small equipment or bulky goods weighing up to 140kg . Set to revolutionise health and safety and handling, it provides a quick and easy alternative to using a forklift or tailgate loader for small loads onsite or loading into vans.

Utilising a 12V 25 Amp linear actuator, the hand truck eliminates awkward and dangerous one or two person lifts. It’s lightweight, easy to operate and manoeuvre, with the lifting arm controlled by lifting or lowering the handles using a simple thumb switch.
In addition, it provides long life cycles and can recharge in just three hours with a standard drill battery, and – when fitted with a specially-designed hook attachment – has a maximum lift height of 1.9m (1.55m with its fork attachment).

Manufactured from aluminium, the hand truck is durable, and can be folded down flat for easy transport and storage.

The PHT 140 has had a massive success in Australia winning Product of the Year 2014 at our own Hire and Rental Show and building momentum since then, with Kennards Hire admitting they had seen a 34% decrease in back and shoulder injuries since starting to use the Makinex PHT-140

Rory Kennard commented about the win in the UK “It is great that the PHT-140 has been recognised again as the best new product at a major trade show. It was designed for the Hire Industry and so to win again at a rental show is a great boost for Makinex, we are very happy to have won this award with our UK partner Morris Machinery”

By the power of Makinex – Small but powerful Generators

There are some machines you just can’t do without on a construction site.

 Power is one of those things.

Without it you may as well just go home…….

 When you do get power, it needs to be powerful, portable, and always be there when you need it.

 Makinex Petrol and Diesel Generators are the most advanced of their kind and offer the following benefits over the competitor:

  • Using the latest in alternator technology
  • Smaller and more compact than other models
  • Greater robustness with a galvanized frame
  • More fuel efficient
  • Easier to maneuver, store and transport

 Makinex are happy to boast that our generators are 15 % more efficient than other brands and with a casing size of 668 x 548 they are also the most compact.

 Makinex Generators are also able to combine 3 phase and single phase outlets , and have a very high start capacity.

 So – What does this mean for you the user?

 It means

  • You can store our little power hubs anywhere you like, on the back of your Ute, in the corner of the office, they are small and powerful and like all great machines you won’t even notice their there.
  •  Saving 15% on efficiency is not a small number to be sniffed at, making your business more efficient is money in your pocket, and money in your pocket can mean anything from buying a round of beers at the pub on a Friday night or taking your partner out to dinner. Sound Good? Hell Yeh!

 

No matter what job you are working on Makinex Petrol and Diesel Generators will work for you. Giving power to your equipment, tools, lighting, appliances, air conditioners, welders and brick saws. They are suitable for use in rental yards, construction sites, medical facilities and on farms where power is limited.

 Makinex Generators have been designed and developed to withstand harsh Australian weather conditions so you can feel confident to always have power.

 Makinex are also now offering a “Try Before You Buy Option” which shows the confidence in our products, so why not get in touch with either Paul or Joel at Makinex to find out more details.
