    Handtrucks2go is proud to have partnered with Powermate ®  a reputable company that has specialized in the manufacturing of electric motorized stair climbing hand trucks for over 30 years. They are the makers of one of the the best motorized stairclimbing trucks anywhere, and it is an honor to be the first  website to offer the Powermates for sale online. Their innovative power trucks are simply genius and come at an unbelievably low affordable price considering that similar trucks with half the functionality sell for the same price or more . Have a look at the detailed images to see all the options available for the M-Series. We have listed the more popular options for sale, if you are looking for other options that you see in the pictures but are not listed for sale just call or email us(through the contact us button) and we'll be glad to assist you.

    The PowerMate M-Series is a heavy duty stair climber with a capacity to move loads up to 1,500 lbs. The M-Series are made from heavy duty steel construction and is ideal for moving heavy loads like safes, boilers, geothermal heat pumps, elevator equipment or any heavy, awkward load.



    Please read all the details in order to give yourself a good idea of the product and to get yourself comfortable with it. Before getting into all the details though, we'll just give a quick overview. The M series Powermate Stair Climber is unique in its height climbing capabilities, while most stairclimbers have a maximum climbing ability of 8-9 inches, these Powermates can climb either 40 or 48 inches depending on the model.

    There are 3 models in the M series hand truck:

    Powermate M-1: 60" Frame height - 40" Lift

    Powermate M-2: 68" Frame Height - 40" Lift

    Powermate M-2C: 68" Frame Height - 48" Lift Height

    The M-1 and M-2B with 40" of lift height will climb on/off any of the standard pickup trucks (F-series, GMC, Dodge Ram), vans (Econoline, Savannah, Cargo, Sprinter) or even box trucks. Occasionally a boxtruck will be higher or the step bumper is deeper so the M-2C would then be the choice.


    The M-1 has a height of 60" while the M-2B and the M-2C has a height of 68" making it more ideal for taller items such as a subzero.

    If you are interested  in receiving on-site training for these specialized hand trucks please call us and we will be happy to arrange it.

    The PowerMate M-Series is four machines in one: a powered stair climber; a powered tailgate lift; a loading dock leveler and a well balanced dolly.

    The following list provides a quick reference to some of the advantages attributed to the PowerMate M-1 stair climber.

      1. Does 100% of the lifting so you don't have to!

      2. A powerful labor saving device that can help reduce costs and contribute to profitability.

      3. Reduces property and product damage by keeping the load under control during the move.

      4. Contributes to your image of professionalism.

      5. Reduces the physical effort to move heavy loads by 87%.
      6. Contributes to jobsite safety by reducing jobsite injuries and injury claims.
      7. Moves heavy loads with half the labor! Jobs that required two people to move without a PowerMate now take just one! Jobs that took four people now only take 2.
      8. Carries the weight on the heavy duty outer frame which reduces the chance of powermate m-1 stair climberbending or twisting.

      9. Comes complete with a built in 'hook bar lever' that can be used with an installed vehicle hook box to assist with vehicle loading. The Hook Bar also doubles as a leverage bar to assist with maneuvering heavy loads.

      10. Includes retractable wheels that convert the M Series trucks into a four-wheel dolly which makes flat surface rolling a breeze!

      11. Customizable with a wide array of attachments including the 'Big Wheels' for rough terrain, snow and ice, sand or uneven ground.

      12. Comes complete with a full length bottom rubber guard that protects all surfaces during moves and also acts as an anti-skid contact.

      13. Has a 12v, 32 AH sealed gel maintenance free battery that is leak proof and will last on average from 4-7 years. Together with our high-efficiency drive screw design the M-Series will move a 500 lb. load up AND down 20 flights of stairs on a single charge!

      14. Backed by the manufacturer!  Powermate not only provides stair climbers they also offer complete moving solutions including superior customer service and training.

      15. Powermate offers a 1-800 number along with load moving guidelines that are prominently displayed on all PowerMate M-Series. Their customer service personnel are always happy to help with on-site support.

      16. High capacity, high quality solid steel stair climber able to handle the most demanding jobs.

      17. Strapbars can be positioned strategically along the frame to secure various size loads.

    Every consideration was given to make your PowerMate® the most ergonomically friendly lifting device on the market. For example, all our operator controls are strategically positioned on the top of the machine between the hand grips. The drive screw brake is always engaged until the operator activates the controls. This safety feature prevents unessessary load movement.

    The wheels on a PowerMate® lift up and out of the way reducing the overall footprint of the machine – ideal in a tight spot like narrow stairwells and landings. This feature is also why you are able to break back the load with such relative ease; with the wheels out of the way, the effort to pull the load back onto the wheels is dramatically reduced. Once the machine and load are back onto the wheels, you are now in a well balanced position - with no effort required to keep the load in balance! You can even let go of the machine at this point! A handy feature on stairwells should you have to open a door or even answer your phone. This is impossible with a regular hand truck and is a major advantage in owning a PowerMate®.

    All PowerMates M-Seies are manufactured with solid state controls which reduce the draw on the battery adding to your daily operational battery life. Another advantage of solid state controls (unique in the industry) is the "soft start" feature. This further increases safety by reducing sudden movements during start up and results in the smoother operation of the machine. The new controls also make servicing and maintenance as easy as 1-2-3!

    With the addition of the horizontal support brackets, the M-Series model can be lowered into a horizontal position. The load can then be easily moved higher up the frame to allow for the addition of a load elevator. This is very handy for positioning heavy, compact loads like electric motors up into a well balanced position prior to the move.

    We own a vending company so we move 600-800 lb machines from location to location. We had a truck with a lift gate and this takes its place. I can move big soda machines by myself. To a small business that's a very big deal. Also I don't need the extra truck and insurance. This machine has paid for itself. I moved a 650 lb machine down a flight of stairs, used the pivot bar and turned into a tight space without breaking a sweat. We would have lost the account without this machine.
    Thank you guys for you quick shipping time. We were under the gun and you came through with flying colors. The service was awesome to say the least. Great job and thank you again.
    We are an HVAC Contractor in Syracuse NY, We purchased the M-1 Powermate to move (4) 900lb packaged air conditioners into a museum in the city. The shipping was swift, we received the hand truck in less than a week. The M-1 was very easy to use, moving the 900lb air conditioners off and on the pick truck was a breeze, up the museum front steps with no hassles and the rear dolly attachment made maneuvering the load through a cluttered museum almost effortless! There are so many other jobs that we will be using this hand truck for in the future and for years to come.
