Applications

The CartCaddyHD cart tugger is primarily designed to push, pull, or maneuver carts or equipment that require turning.

The CartCaddyHD dollie pusher attaches to the swivel caster end and provides the pushing and pulling power necessary for easy turning and intricate maneuvering. Customer's terminology for their specific cart may vary. They can be referred to as a cart, dollie, flatbed, trough, pan truck, tub, tank, cradle, lift table, window cart, glass rack, or wheeled machinery. These carts can carry a variety of items from a bin full of washers, to a flat bed of steel, to a trough full of cookie dough. of the parts or equipment on the cart being pulled or pushed, our motorized cart pusher has the power to push or pull almost any cart.

Often employees operating without a CartCaddyHD cart tugger are required manually to push and pull carts. This heavy cart pushing task may require anywhere from 1-6 employees. The CartCaddy™ rack puller eliminates the possibility of a strain or pain from manually pushing these load, while eliminating the amount of employees to accomplish the task, drastically increasing productivity. While some companies have been successful in utilizing equipment such as fork trucks, walkies, electric pallet jacks, or riding tugs to manage their cart pushing application, these solutions are often not ergonomically correct and are expensive. They also result in awkward maneuvering in tight spaces.

Whatever the cart pushing or cart pulling application, our electric powered cart movers have the power to push or pull almost any wheeled application.
