CartCaddyShorty Hospital


The CartCaddyShorty is primarily designed to push, pull, or maneuver carts or equipment that require turning and that can typically be pushed or pulled with 1 or 2 people. The most common application is the cart with two front swivel casters and 2 straight casters. This battery powered mover is the smallest, most maneuverable tug on the market, and still has plenty of power to handle most push or pull applications. The CartCaddyShorty attaches to the swivel castered end and provides the pushing and pulling power necessary for easy turning and intricate maneuvering. Customers 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 bed of steel, to a trough full of cookie dough. Regardless of the parts or equipment being pushed or pulled, our battery powered mover or pusher has the power to push or pull almost any heavy cart.

While some companies have been successful in utilizing equipment such as a fork truck, walkie, electric pallet jack, or riding tug to manage their cart pushing application, these solutions are often not ergonomically correct and are expensive, and result in awkward maneuvering in tight spaces.

DJ Products, Inc. also offers customized solutions to virtually any material handling cart pushing or pulling application.

The spring hitch option and customized attachment prevent you from having to fabricate multiple attachments on everyone of your carts or equipment.
