Since we received the new model a few months back I have noticed the unit has improved features as we can now lift an extra 20kgs.

We use the PHT regularly around the branch lifting brick saws, Generators and other small equipment. I use to wake up sore in the mornings with back pain from all the lifting of equipment, and I don’t seem to have that problem anymore now I have the Makinex Powered Hand Truck”.
