Power Pusher® If It Rolls . . . We Can Move it.

Power Pusher® specializes in pedestrian-operated, battery-powered, motorized tugs designed to meet safety and productivity initiatives while driving down maintenance and labor costs. Power Pusher’s material handling tugs meet the diverse and challenging needs of customers, pushing or pulling wheeled or semi-wheeled loads, mobilizing everything from buses, trains, cars, trucks, trailers, and railcars to airplanes and modular buildings.

Power Pusher® industrial electric tug devices are a safe, cost effective alternative to large expensive ride-on material handling equipment, such as forklift trucks and tractors. The units enable a single person to safely move thousands of pounds with total control and maximum visibility. Each unit is designed to assist in company compliance with OSHA health and safety guidelines that limit the amount of manual pushing and pulling performed by a single person.   

Power Pusher reduces the manpower and time necessary to move large loads, resulting in significant gains in shop floor productivity, with most users experiencing a total return on investment in a mere 12 to 18 months after purchase. Custom designs available.
