CartCaddyShorty Cart Pullers
Applications for Cart Pullers
Our CartCaddyShorty cart pullers, mostly designed to push, pull, and maneuver carts or equipment that require turning, can typically be pushed or pulled with one or two people. The cart is commonly configured to have two front swivel casters and two straight casters. This battery powered mover is the smallest, most maneuverable tug available, and still has enough power to handle the majority of push and pull applications. All of our CartCaddyShorty cart pullers attach to the swivel castered end and provide the power necessary for easy turning and intricate maneuvering. Costumers' terminology for their specific carts 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 bin full of washers, a flat bed of steel, or even a trough full of cookie dough.
Employees operating without CartCaddyShorty cart pullers are usually required to push and pull carts manually, requiring anywhere from 1-3 workers. The CartCaddyShorty eliminates the likely possibility that employees will experience strain or pain from manually pushing these loads, while eliminating the number of workers needed to accomplish the task, which drastically increases productivity. While some companies have been successful in utilizing equipment such as fork trucks, walkie pullers, electric pallet jacks, or riding tugs to manage their cart pushing application, these solutions are rarely considered ergonomically correct and can be expensive. They can also often result in awkward maneuvering in tight areas.
Whatever cart pushing or pulling application you have, our powered pullers have the power to move almost any wheeled application. DJ Products, Inc. also offers customized solutions to comply with virtually any material handling cart application. Please contact us to see how our cart movers can solve your application needs.
Benefits of Cart Pullers
The CartCaddyShorty cart pullers are ergonomically designed to prevent the strains and pains associated with manually pushing and pulling heavy carts and equipment. The use of the pullers minimizes the risk of injury, which in turn reduces the overall number of workers' compensation and insurance claims. According to OSHA's ergonomic standards proposal, work-related musculoskeletal disorders, such as tendinitis and lower back pain, account for $20 billion in workers' compensation costs each year and account for 34% of all lost workday injuries.
Our cart pullers are also beneficial in that they increase 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 tasksare available for alternative responsibilities.
Companies also receive an indirect benefit of improved employee morale by reducing drudgery of physical labor for their employees. Improved employee morale decreases employee turnover and improves overall job performance.

Our pullers come standard with a 36-volt system, 3 12-volt batteries, designed to give the operator 6-hours of continuous use before recharging. Plenty of battery life to last an entire shift.
These pullers have a variable speed twist grip for forward and reverse directions from 0 to 3 mph. The ergonomically correct variable speed feature prevents carpal tunnel and allows the operator to maintain smooth control while intricately maneuvering their load. The puller's ability to go 3 mph allows the machine to keep up with the operator without frustration from waiting for a slowly operating machine when operating the unit from point A to B through-out your facility.
The safety stop switch positioned at the back of the handle bar box immediately stops the machine when depressed to prevent any possible injury from operating the device. This feature is a must when buying cart pullers.
The cart puller's spring hitch option and customized attachment prevent you from having to fabricate multiple attachments on everyone of your carts or equipment. The cart pullers arm lowers and raises for attaching firmly to the bottom of your cart. Weight is transferred from your cart to the pullers front drive wheels for better traction when moving your cart.
Our electric carts are designed for easy maneuvering and pivoting of your loads. After the arm is attached firmly to your carts or equipment, the unit can pivot a full 180 degrees under the arm. This feature allows a worker to turn loads a full 90 degrees without jack knifing your cart or manually turning the front of you cart.
