TrailerCaddy Yard Truck Applications
The TrailerCaddy Yard Truck is a low-cost yard truck designed for shunting semi-trailers in and out of dock doors at manufacturing and distribution centers, safely. If you are a small or medium sized distribution center or use just in time loading of trailer, the purchase of a shunt truck or terminal tractor can be challenging.. The cost of a new shunt truck can easily exceed $100k. Plus, shunting trailers is dangerous. In fact, most injuries, damage to trailers, tractors, and buildings occur in the yard rather than on the road. Plus, having an outside shunting service can really be expensive and inefficient.
The TrailerCaddy Terminal Tractor is 1/4 the cost of a new yard truck, much cleaner, and there is virtually no maintenance. It reduces the risk of accidents, injuries and damage by shunting trailers safely in and out of tight loading docks doors. Our wagon-wheel steering mechanism allows for exceptional maneuverability, small corrections and precise turns.
With the TrailerCaddy Terminal Tractor, the operator walks along-side the unit at a slower, more controlled pace. No more looking over your shoulder while you back up. No more crawling in and out of the tractor cab again and again. The TrailerCaddy Yard Dog Truck allows the operator to move heavy trailers while facing forward, which increases trailer shunting safety.
The battery powered TrailerCaddy Shunt Truck is always available and it can be operated by a broad range of employees. That means you can eliminate a shunting service or shunt truck driver and increase productivity.

When moving a full and empty trailers in and out of loading dock doors it is essential that this be done safely and efficiently.
