Power Pusher® pedestrian-operated, battery-powered, motorized tugs are designed to meet safety and productivity initiatives while driving down maintenance and labor costs. Power Pusher tugs meet the diverse and challenging needs of customers, pushing or pulling wheeled or semi-wheeled loads, mobilizing everything from cars, carts, trailers, rail cars and roll cages to airplanes and modular buildings.

The 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 compact, walk behind 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.  

Requiring no license, little maintenance and utilizing less space than large, bulky equipment, Power Pusher delivers powerful material handling equipment.
