Shopping Cart Retriever

Shopping cart retriever systems are a labor savings device for gathering and recycling shopping carts. The traditional method of collecting shopping carts in a retail operation consists of hourly employees toiling with hard work, incurring aches and pains, risking possible injury, and they are doing so in weather conditions ranging from 40 below to 110 degrees in rain, sleet, snow, and sun.

The shopping cart retriever job is easily the most disliked job in the store. The cart pusher employee knows there are a many other jobs in town that provide better working environments and much less strenuous work at the same wage than the shopping cart retriever job. Until now, the hard work and drudgery is eliminated when using a shopping cart system.

Shopping Cart Pusher

The shopping cart pusher attaches to the back of the line of shopping carts and can push up to 50 shopping cats. The operator attaches the shopping cart pusher to the back of the line of shopping carts, he then stands at the front of the train of carts with one hand steering the line of carts and the other hand using a remote control device that operates the shopping cart system.

The motorized cart pushes the line of shopping carts from behind, following the direction that the operator steers as he guides them from the front. Once he gets to the front of the retail store, he heads back out to the parking lot with the shopping cart mover to collect more carts.
