Two-wheel hand truck has powered lift

Combining the vertical lifting of a small powered stacker with the convenience, versatility, and simplicity of a two-wheel hand truck, the new Model LNB-350 Lift’n Buddy makes it faster, safer and easier to transport and reposition items in virtually any work environment.

Whether in manufacturing, warehousing/distribution, shipping/receiving, retail, restaurants, hotels, hospitals or offices, Model LNB-350 helps transfer loads to and from shelves, workbenches, conveyors, delivery trucks, customer vehicles, etc.  At the touch of a button, the unit’s powered platform positions loads at a comfortable height to eliminate bending and stretching.  A linear actuator ensures smooth lifting and lowering with zero drift.  The tethered push-button control allows the user to adjust height from any side of the load.

Built on a lightweight yet durable aluminum frame, Model LNB-350 can handle loads of up to 350 pounds and lift them a full 36 inches.  Heavy-duty 10-inch polyurethane tires roll effortlessly over uneven floors, pavement, thresholds, and carpeting without going flat or leaving skid marks.  Lifting power is from an on-board 12-volt battery that is maintenance-free and has a built-in charger.  The LNB-350 has a stationary base platen that keeps it upright and freestanding, even when the generously sized lifting platform is raised and under load.  The platform has 10 slots in case the load needs to be secured with bungee cords or straps.

In addition to greatly reducing the physical strain of lifting heavy or awkward loads, the Model LNB-350 also improves productivity.  Many jobs that formerly required two people can now be done in less time by just one person and a Lift’n Buddy.  The benefits of using the unit for lighter loads may be less obvious but are equally significant.  Repetitive bending and lifting takes a toll on workers.  For example, lifting 100 20-pound boxes amounts to lifting a ton.  By reducing the effort exerted by an employee, even one handling lighter loads, a Lift’n Buddy reduces the risk of injury, repetitive stress disorders, and costly workers compensation claims, all while speeding up the work.

Options and accessories for the Model LNB-350 Lift’n Buddy include multiple handle styles, custom platforms and finishes, an attachment for lifting 5-gallon pails, a kick stand, and a cylinder-handling kit.
