Power Tug: CartCaddy5WPPower Tug

The CartCaddy5WP Power Tug is primarily designed to push, pull, or turn carts or wheeled equipment that have casters. The CartCaddy5WP Power Tug is the heavier duty upgrade to the CartCaddy5W Tugger. The 5WP model has added weight over the drive tires to provideincreased traction for heavier loads.

Applications

The most common application is the cart with 2 front swivel casters and 2 rear straight casters. The CartCaddy5WP Power Tug attaches to the swivel caster end and provides the pushing and pulling power necessary for easy turning and intricate maneuvering.

These carts can carry a variety of items, from a bin full of washers, to a flat bed of steel, to a trough full of cookie dough. Regardless of the parts or equipment on the cart being pulled or pushed, our motorized hauler or cart pusher has the power to push or pull almost any heavy cart.

Power Tug Benefits

The unit has a variable speed twist grip for forward and reverse directions from 0-3 mph. The ergonomically correct variable speed feature prevents carpal tunnel and allows the operator to maintain smooth control while intricately maneuvering a load. The CartCaddy5WP Powered Pusher ability to move up to 3 mph prevents the often-frustrating scenario of working with slowly moving equipment.

The safety stop switch positioned at the back of the Power Tug handle bar box immediately stops the machine when depressed to prevent any possible injury from operating the device. This feature is a must when buying any piece of equipment.

The electric lift option and customized attachment eliminate the need for fabricating multiple attachments for each cart or piece of equipment. The CartCaddy5WP's arm lowers and rises, allowing it to attach firmly to the bottom of any cart. Weight is transferred from the cart to the front drive wheels of the CartCaddy5WP Motorized Cart Puller for better traction when moving each load.

The CartCaddy5WP Power Tug 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 your operator to turn the CartCaddy5WP Electric Tug without jacknifing your cart.
