DJProducts, Inc., the worlds leader in electric powered material handling equipment and powered trailer dollies for use in all types of manufacturing plants, has introduced a new powered tractor trailer for moving all types of large trailers.  The small, walk-behind TrailerCaddyHD Extreme yard truck trailer spotter is designed to eliminate the difficult task of using a large bulky diesel terminal tractor or yard truck to move empty OTR, tank and lowboy/drop deck trailers in/out of docks & yards both indoors and outdoors.  The TrailerCaddyHD-Chain Drive unit slowly and easily maneuvers large trailers with ease and accuracy in confined areas.   The small truck trailer terminal tractor can spot and shunt trailers where/when needed, and save time as anyone can use it, no need to wait for an OTR semi-tractor trailer operator anymore. 

The TrailerCaddyHD yard truck trailer spotter is also capable of pushing and pulling boats, RV's, horse trailers, toy haulers, or equipment trailers as well.  It is a valuable multi-purpose unit.  The yard truck works great on 48' & 53’ OTR trailers, tank, and lowboy trailers and heavy commercial equipment trailers up to 50,000 lbs. This terminal tractor is the perfect solution for manufacturers, warehouses, distributors, and anyone who has to shunt heavy trailers short distances either indoors or outdoors. The trailer spotters compact size, maneuverability, variable speed and minimal price tag make it a more affordable yard truck alternative to traditional yard tractors or pick up trucks
.
The truck trailer terminal tractor features a heavy duty 36-volt motor generating an enormous amount of power in the compact powered dolly. The hydraulic actuator powered lift kit lifts tongue weight from 5,000 to 15,000 lbs. making it simple for the powered trailer dolly to lift and maneuver any type trailer.  It is available with kingpin, ball hitch, and pintle attachment options.

For more detailed information on the TrailerCaddyHD yard truck trailer spotter, along with pictures and a video on the solution that solved this application, please go to our website at:  www.djproducts.com/products/truck-trailer-terminal-tractor.html.
