Our CarCaddy Electric Car Pusher is battery operated and designed to push cars and vehicles that have pneumatic tires, such as cars, trucks, campers, and buses. It can push cars and trucks up to 20,000 pounds on flat ground and up to 10,000 pounds on 3% grade. And if that is not enough, you can opt for a Heavy Duty Motor/Transaxle Power Upgrade so you can push cars and trucks that weigh up to 50,000 pounds. You can also opt to add foam filled tires, snow and ice tires, a safety horn or a flashing light.
Keeping valuable employees injury free and keeping cars free of damage is the only way that a busy car lot or mechanic shop can effectively keep up with these increases in business. Customers don’t want to experience excessive delays when their cars are being serviced and few customers would be willing to pay sticker price for a car that has been unnecessarily damaged on the lot.
Investing in a piece of equipment like the CarCaddy electric car pushers increases productivity at the same time that it reduces the risk of damage and injury. This allows auto lots and mechanic shops to keep up with increases in volume, improve service levels and generate additional profits.
Many vehicle manufacturers use a CarCaddy car and vehicle pusher to push the units short distances down a production line from station to station. A CarCaddy also has plenty of power to push a stalled vehicle at service centers or along highways.
The primary benefit of using the CarCaddy electric car and vehicle pusher is to prevent the strains associated with pushing stalled cars, buses, heavy trucks, and other vehicles. Overextending the body when manually pushing cars from the parking lot into a service center garage can be extremely harmful to the worker, as can pushing a stalled vehicle from the highway to the shoulder. When a car and vehicle pusher is used for these routine tasks, damage to the body (including back and shoulder strain) is minimized, which keeps employees healthy and reduces workers’ compensation.
The CarCaddy also prevents damages associated with moving these stalled vehicles using another vehicle. In cases where manpower is not available, other vehicles are used to bump up against the back end of the stalled vehicle. Both vehicles can be dented, scratched, or cracked due to this practice. The front push pad of the CarCaddy car and vehicle pusher is made of a soft, durable, padded material designed to preserve the paint and integrity of the back end of the stalled vehicle while also protecting the car and vehicle pusher.
