The Makinex Lift Assist, is a specifically designed to assist operators with the lifting of a pneumatic jackhammer. Actuating the LA90-350 with every cut allows the operator more control and ease of use while running the jackhammer.


The Mobile Charging Pod, a mobile powered cabinet that allows contractors on a construction site to safely store cordless tools batteries and chargers while charging their batteries. It has 6 lockers that are large enough for the large battery bank chargers and provides a protected GFCI for each locker.


Dual Pressure Cleaner, The Makinex dual function pressure cleaner gives you two machines in one. In one compact unit you get a powerful 18” (450 mm) rotary surface cleaner and a pressure washer wand. Now you can handle more cleaning jobs and do them much faster. Consider the time you waste on setup and task-switching when you use single-purpose washers. Once you have enjoyed the speed and efficiency of the Makinex DPC 2200 you’ll never put up with the hassle of separate equipment again.


Makinex’s newest Generator, the Dual-Phase 23kW 480V, brings the most power yet to their portable generator range. The unique alternator configuration which the generator has, powers 120V and 480V simultaneously with no loss on either circuit. It can take 23kW from the 3 phase and 3kW from the single-phase at the same time without affecting each other (no power or frequency dips). The generator is only 36”x25”x36”, making it the smallest dual-phase 23kw 480V generator on the market!
