CartCaddy5W Cart Pullers
Applications for Cart Pullers
The CartCaddy5W dolly mover is primarily designed to push, pull, or maneuver carts or equipment that require turning. The most common application is the cart with 2 front swivel casters and 2 straight casters. The CartCaddy5W dolly pusher 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 carts, dollies, flatbeds, troughs, pan trucks, tubs, tanks, cradles, lift tables, window carts, glass racks, 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. Regardless of the parts or equipment on the cart being pulled or pushed, our battery powered mover or pusher has the power to push or pull almost any heavy cart.
Often employees operating without a CartCaddy5W dolly puller are required manually to push and pull carts. This heavy cart pushing task may requiring anywhere from 1-6 employees. The CartCaddy(TM) eliminates the possibility of a strain or pain from manually pushing a 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 a fork-truck, walkie, electric pallet jack or riding tugs to manage their cart pushing application, these solutions are often not ergonomically correct and expensive, and result in awkward maneuvering in tight spaces.
Whatever the cart pushing or cart pulling application is, our electric powered pusher and puller has the power to push or pull almost any wheeled application. DJ Products, Inc. also offers customized solutions to virtually any material handling cart pushing or pulling application. Please contact us to see how our products can solve your application needs.
Benefits for Cart Pullers
The CartCaddy5W dolly mover is ergonomically designed to prevent the strains and pains often associated with manually pushing and pulling heavy carts and equipment. The use of the CartCaddy5W 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 musculoskeletal 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.
The CartCaddy5W dolly pusher is also beneficial in that it increases overall productivity. Heavy carts which had previously required multiple operators to maneuver can now be negotiated by a single employee. As a result, the operators eliminated from these tasks are available for alternate responsibilities.
Companies also receive an indirect benefit of improved employee morale by reducing the drudgery of physical labor for their employees. Improved employee morale decreases employee turnover and improves overall job performance.
