CartCaddy with Rollers

The CartCaddy™ equipment pusher with rollers is designed to push carts and equipment that move in a straight line and are attached to a steering system (i.e. on rails). The CartCaddy™ equipment pusher provides directional force while the facility's steering system mechanism maintains the route of the cart. The CartCaddy™ truck pusher has been extremely successful with assembly lines applications and applications which involve moving a cart in and out of an oven or paint booth. The CartCaddy™ motorized pusher is also successful in applications involving products that are assemblies with wheels on them (i.e. buses, motor homes, tractors, and carts).

These types of products often have large pneumatic tires are relatively easy to push. As a rule of thumb, the larger the wheel the less rolling resistance and this, the easier the product is to push. The exception application to the CartCaddy™ cart tug is used for is the wagon wheel cart or the farm cart. These carts have a tongue on the front, that when turned, the front axles turns (known as the wagon wheel), or the front two wheels turn independently (known as the farm cart). This application can easily be moved using the CartCaddy™ battery powered tug with a pintle hitch, ball hitch, or a pin.


The CartCaddy™ powered bus pusher is ergonomically designed to prevent the strains and pains often associated with manually pushing and pulling heavy carts and equipment. The use of the CartCaddy™ truck pusher minimizes the risk of injury, which in turn reduces the overall number of workman's compensation and insurance claims. According to OSHA's recently released ergonomics standard proposal, work related musuloskeletal disorders, such as tendonitis and low back pain, account for $20 billion in workers compensation costs each year and 34% of all lost workday injuries.

Fork trucks, walkies, and riding tugs are often utilized to maneuver carts and equipment short distances. These methods require more storage space and are significantly more costly than the CartCaddy™ motorized cart puller. For example, the average cost of a CartCaddy™ is about 1/5th the cost of traditional trucks, walkies, and tugs. Incorporating the CartCaddy™ allows the traditional trucks, walkies, and tugs to be utilized for their intended purposes. The CartCaddy™ powered tug is less bulky than the traditional equipment which results in fewer accidents and lower maintenance costs. The easy maneuverability of the product reduces damage to surrounding parts and equipment.
