TrailerCaddy Trailer Shifter Applications

The TrailerCaddy Trailer Shifter is a low-cost yard truck designed for shunting semi-trailers in and out of dock doors at manufacturing and distribution centers. If you are a small or medium sized distribution center, the purchase of a shunt truck or terminal tractor can be financially challenging. The cost of a new shunt truck can easily exceed $100k, and annual maintenance can run into the thousands, or tens-of-thousands of dollars. The fact is that shunting trailers is dangerous. Most injuries, damage to trailers, tractors, and buildings occur in the yard rather than on the road. Additionally, having an outside shunting service can really be expensive and inefficient. The TrailerCaddy Trailer Shifter is 1/4 the cost of a new yard truck, much cleaner, and there is virtually no maintenance. It reduces the risk of accidents, injuries and damage by shunting trailers safely in and out of tight loading docks doors. Our wagon-wheel steering mechanism allows for exceptional maneuverability, small corrections and precise turns. With the TrailerCaddy Trailer Shifter, the operator walks along-side the unit at a slower, more controlled pace. No more looking over your shoulder while you back up. No more crawling in and out of the tractor cab again and again. The TrailerCaddy Trailer Shifter allows the operator to move heavy trailers while facing forward, which improves trailer shunting safety. The battery powered TrailerCaddy Trailer Shifter is always available and can be operated by a broad range of employees. That can allow you to eliminate a shunting service or shunt truck driver and increase productivity.
