Cart Retriever

A cart retriever system is a labor-saving device for gathering and recycling carts.  The traditional method of collecting carts in a retail operation consists of hourly employees dealing with hard physical labor and risking possible injuries. These employees also must gather the carts in adverse weather conditions, such as extreme heat and cold, rain, snow, and hail.

Retrieving shopping carts is clearly not a task that is often desired at a grocery or retail store.  A cart pushing employee knows there are other jobs in town that provide better working environments and much less strenuous work at a comparable wage to the cart retriever job.  However, this hard work and drudgery can be be avoided by using a cart retriever system.

Cart Pusher, Puller, and Retriever

The retriever attaches to the back of the line of up to fifty shopping carts.  After the retriever attaches the 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 retriever.

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