NuStar, Inc. introduces a new stainless steel pedestrian-operated, battery-operated Power Pusher. This stainless steel pusher is ideal for moving heavy rolling loads in the manufacture or distribution of pharmaceuticals, food, nutriceuticals, health/beauty aids or other products in a cleanroom or heavy washdown application. Unlike forklifts or other ride-on equipment, the Power Pusher runs on batteries so it does not consume $4 per gallon gasoline, diesel or propane; and, it does not emit any harmful exhaust or fumes.
It is significantly less expensive than a forklift and operators do not need a license. It comes with a built in battery charger that plugs into a standard outlet. With a footprint less than two square yards, the Power Pusher is easily stored at a jobsite and is easy to transport from site to site. It’s the perfect tool for those companies that want to be environmentally proactive. One person can use the nimble Power Pusher to efficiently and safely push, pull and maneuver wheeled loads up to 150,000 lbs., or those with high rolling resistance.

The Power Pusher increases productivity by reducing the number of employees needed to move heavy objects. It also creates a safer work environment by reducing the risk of injury and by keeping the load under control. Non-stainless steel construction models are also available.

One person can maneuver and move heavy cars, carts, dollies, racks, tanks, machinery, instruments, drums, pallets, containers and more. The soft touch control allows smooth and accurate maneuvering so even delicate breakable loads move easily and safely. Reduce the risk of back injury while improving your productivity.
