TrailerCaddy Yard Truck Applications

The TrailerCaddy Terminal Tractor is an affordable yard truck designed for shunting semi-trailers in and out of dock doors at manufacturing or distribution centers. If you are a smaller or medium distribution center, the purchase of a shunt truck, hostler truck or terminal tractor can be costly. The price of a new shunt truck can easily be above $100k, and annual maintenance fees can run into tens-of-thousands of dollars. The fact is that shunting trailers is expensive, and it is dangerous. Most injuries, damage to trailers, tractors, and buildings occur in yards rather than on the roads. Additionally, hiring outside shunting services can get expensive and be very inefficient.

The TrailerCaddy Terminal Tractor is the quarter of the cost of a new yard truck. It is much cleaner, and there is virtually zero maintenance. It reduces risk of accidents and injuries, and it can lower the amount of damage done by shunting trailers  in and out of tight loading docks doors. Our wagon-wheel steering mechanism makes for an exceptional maneuverability. It gives operators precise movements and turns.

The operator walks along-side the unit with a more controlled pace, with the TrailerCaddy Terminal Tractor. This means less looking over the shoulder while backing up, and no more crawling in and out of the tractor cab. Trailer shunting safety is improved due to the operators ability to always be looking forward. This increases productivity and can eliminate an outsourced shunting service.

 

The TrailerCaddy Terminal Tractor is a low cost Shunt Yard Truck.

It is less than 25% of the cost of a new shunt truck. Our inexpensive yard truck is a great solution to save money on shunting trailers, If you have a small or medium sized distribution center.  The battery powered TrailerCaddy Terminal Tractor is capable of moving trailers up to 100,000 lbs., and operators are not required to have a CDL license. They also do not need annual training or certification. This can save you thousands of dollars on paying for a single driver. Since it is battery operated, it is much safer and easier to use.
