CartCaddyWagonWheel Electric Tugger - DJ Products

May 28, 2008
DJ Products of Minneapolis, manufacturers of walk-behind battery powered tugs and platform trucks, has introduced another tug for moving carts, wheeled equipment and equipment trailers. Called the CartCaddyWagonWheel, this electric tugger is designed for wagon wheel and quad steer style trailers and wheeled equipment up to 10,000 lbs that are typically pulled behind tow tractors, trucks, or fork trucks. The new feature of this tugger, which separates it from their other CartCaddy models, is its tiller arm design. The tiller arm design aids in easier turning and manipulating of such carts, trailers and equipment. These carts and trailers typically have pintle eyes or rings attached to tongues that control the front, and sometime rear axles of the equipment. The operator can now easily pull either one, or a long train of carts at a slow, controlled walking speed. Most common applications requiring a CartCaddyWagonWheel unit are manufacturing facilities with constant movement of wheeled equipment and carts in areas typically too confined for a conventional rider tug, truck, or fork truck. The CartCaddy assists in delivering these carts or trailers to more wide open areas or in and around the manufacturing floors where the larger riding tugs can then move them great distances. The unit’s power, size, maneuverability, and price tag make it a more affordable alternative when compared to a fork truck or a possible injury resulting from employees strong-arming the equipment.
