NuStar, Inc. introduces a new stainless steel Power Tug™ pedestrian-operated, battery-powered tug. It can push, pull and maneuver virtually any load on wheels and uses its own modular range of attachments for handling rolling loads up to 5,000 lbs., or those with high rolling resistance. The stainless steel Power Tug™ is ideal for food, pharmaceutical or clean room applications where there are space constraints. It fits snugly up to the load and its actuator grabs and locks onto the framework to safely move tanks, carts or dollies.
It is designed to safely maneuver carts or apparatus that have 4 swivel casters or 2 swivel and 2 fixed casters. The Power Tug is designed to allow one person to move wheeled loads weighing up to 5,000 lbs. without forklifts or other more expensive ride-on equipment. It increases productivity by reducing the number of employees needed to move heavy objects and increasing the speed of moving loads. They are less expensive and easier to store than forklifts or tractors. The Power Tug is also available in a more affordable, non-stainless steel version.
A mono-drive wheel with stabilizing casters allows the unit to operate on uneven surfaces indoors or out. Power Tugs have an on-board battery charger, safety horn, hand guards, a fully programmable control system, automatic braking and emergency reverse. They are simple to use and maintain.
Options include audible motion beeper, safety strobe, dual leg configuration and custom attachments to meet your cart requirements.
