Increasing productivity by reducing the number of employees needed to maneuver heavy objects, product developers note, the improved Power Pusher is a pedestrian-operated, battery-powered device designed to allow one person to move wheeled loads weighing up to 50,000 lbs. up a 5 percent grade without forklifts or other more expensive ride-on equipment. It suits harsh and hazardous situations in industries like construction, the manufacturer affirms, enabling one person to move heavy cars, carts, machinery, instruments, racks, drums, pallets, and containers.
The Power Pusher has variable speed with soft-touch control for smooth and accurate maneuvering of even delicate, breakable loads; anti-runaway automatic braking; and, a built-in 24V 10-amp charger, permitting simple plug-in battery recharge. The fully programmable control system allows users to set acceleration/deceleration limits, and the transaxle design enables the unit to operate smoothly on uneven surfaces, indoors or out. Options include hitches, tow bars, strobe, motion beeper, ergonomic handle, and push plates. NuStar, Inc.
