The CartCaddy WagonWheel Shorty is designed to pull or maneuver carts or trailers with a tongue that hinges up and down and can also turn an axle at the bottom of the cart. Usually there is a ring or eye at the end of these tongues that can attach with a pin or pintle hitch. Due to the nature of the swiveling tow arms it grabs, it doesn’t transfer weight from the load to the CartCaddy WagonWheel Shorty drive tires, explaining why the tugger cart doesn’t include the electric lift kit. The CartCaddy WagonWheel Shorty also has a wagon wheel steering system, which makes turning and maneuvering loads easier. This design works well on carts or trailers that weigh up to 3,000 lbs. 

The CartCaddy WagonWheel Shorty comes standard with a 36v system (3 – 12v batteries) designed to give the operator 6-8 hours of continuous run time before recharging.  

This tugger has 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 his load. The CartCaddy WagonWheel shorty 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 throughout your facility 

The safety stop switch positioned at the back of the handlebar box immediately kills the power, and the machine comes to a rolling stop (about 2 ft.) to prevent any possible injury from operating the device. This feature is a must when buying any piece of cart pulling equipment. 

The CartCaddy WagonWheel Shorty is designed for easy maneuvering and pivoting of your loads. After the arm hitch is attached firmly to your carts or equipment, the unit can pivot a full 180 degrees under the arm. This feature allows for turning your loads a full 90 degrees without jack knifing your cart or manually turning the front of your cart.
