Design & Handling
The A-iPower PWF3400KV is very mobile, due to its hand truck design and approximate dimensions of D21.3 x W20.4 x H40.2 in. Its sturdy welded steel frame provides longevity to the assembly. The folding handle enhances its mobility, while allowing for a convenient storage.
With a weight of 62 lbs, the unit can be easily maneuvered by most users. Its 200cc Kohler XTX950 engine and welded steel frame all add up to a substantial part of that weight. Since the PWF3400KV has a set of two 12" never-flat wheels, it is still easily maneuvered and manipulated.
