Motorized Tug Applications

A common application of the RiderCaddy motorized tug is the cart with two front swivel casters and two straight back casters and that needs to be pulled significant distances. The battery powered tug RiderCaddy can either attach to the swivel caster end of a cart with the electric lift kit or can grab the eye of a cart with a pintle hitch or pin.

In some cases, battery powered walk behind cart tug can get the job done, but in instances where heavy carts need to travel the whole length of a large warehouse as quickly as possible a battery powered cart tug like the RiderCaddy from DJ Products can greatly increase efficiency. The RiderCaddy motorized cart tug quickly and easily hooks up to carts with two front swivel casters and two straight back casters and allows a single employee to get the cart where it needs to be at speeds of up to five miles an hour.

The RiderCaddy motorized tug can increase overall productivity. If your company had carts that required several operators, a RiderCaddy would allow them to be moved by just one operator. The operators eliminated from this responsibility would then be available for other tasks.

In cases where exceedingly heavy carts need to be transported for great distances, the RiderCaddy battery powered mover can also help to reduce the chance of injury. Employees who are forced to try and strong arm a heavy push cart over great distances could end up either needing additional employees to help complete the task or possibly suffer an injury that would require them to miss work. The RiderCaddy Power Pusher lets a single employee handle the task, which makes for a safer and more productive work environment.

Motorized Tug Features and Specifications

  1.  The RiderCaddy Battery Cart Pusher comes standard with a 36-volt system, 3 12-volt batteries, designed to give the operator 16-hours of continuous use, without moving a load, before recharging. Plenty of battery life to usually last two shifts.
  2. The Cart Pusher has a variable speed thumb twist for forward and reverse directions from 0 to 5 mph. The ergonomically correct variable speed feature prevents carpal tunnel and allows the operator to maintain smooth control while intricately maneuvering his load. Our RiderCaddy Cart Pusher has the ability to go 5 mph when pulling equipment and carts from point A to B through-out your facility.
  3. The safety stop switch positioned at the back of the handle bar box immediately stops the machine when pressed to prevent any possible injury from operating the device. This feature is a must when buying any piece of equipment.
  4. The electric lift option and customized attachment on the powered tug prevent you from having to fabricate multiple attachments on everyone of your carts or equipment. The RiderCaddy arm lowers and raises for attaching firmly to the bottom of your cart. Weight is transferred from your cart to the front drive wheels of the RiderCaddy for better traction when moving your load.
  5. The RiderCaddy Cart Pusher is designed for easy maneuvering and pivoting of your loads. After the arm 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.
