The CartCaddy powered paper roll and wire spool pusher eliminates the manual pushing and maneuvering of heavy, round products that turn/roll on their own axis. The custom, adjustable roller system mounted to the front of the CartCaddy pushes against the bottom of the round object, applying pressure to the CartCaddys drive tires for traction, while the rollers turn in the opposition direction rolling the reel forward. The operator uses the variable speed of the CartCaddys handlebars to slowly start the momentum of the rolling object forward without accelerating it too fast. As the operator slows the CartCaddy, the rolling object will also slow. The rollers extended outside the profile of the roll pusher help the unit pick apart rolls stationed next to one another.
The powered roll pusher provides directional force while the facility’s steering mechanism maintains the route of the cart. The CartCaddy roll pusher has been extremely successful in paper companies and for wire spool applications.
The CartCaddy battery powered roll pusher has been ergonomically created to prevent the strains and pains that are normally associated with manually pushing and pulling heavy carts and equipment. The use of the roll mover minimizes the risk of injury, which consequently reduces the number of workers’ compensation and insurance claims.
Fork trucks, walkies, and riding tugs are used often to maneuver carts and equipment short distances, but these solutions require considerably more storage space and are significantly more costly than the CartCaddy powered roll pusher.
