PowerMate Powered Stairclimbers
- PowerMate is the market leading stairclimber first established in the UK more than 25 years ago.

It is a unique handling aid - a 4-in-1 safety handler moving heavy and awkward on and off vehicles (even from ground level to a deck height of 60cm), up and down stairs, around tight landings to their final installation point.

It travels and charges on-board vehicle ready for load handling at the point of distribution. And in many instances, it also enables work normally requiring two operators to be accomplished by one.

PowerMate is synonymous with safety and professionalism - reducing back strain and operator fatigue and eliminating product and premises damages during the delivery cycle.
