Pushing Cable Drums and Paper Rolls
Known in the Cable industry as Drum Pushers and in the Paper industry as Roll Pushers or Roll Movers, Power Pusher® offers five different models to handle any drum or roll.
When manufacturing and processing cable and paper, there is often a requirement to move the cable drums and paper rolls into or out of winders, slitters and testing chambers. When there is no overhead crane to handle this movement and a lack of space or, proximity to pedestrians prohibits the use of a clamp truck, employees will often attempt to roll the load manually leading to injury.
The use of a single pedestrian operated Power Pusher™ tug unit to push rolls and drums removes the risk of back injury to workers and enables one person to move loads up to 137,000 lbs. – a significant savings compared to the cost of overhead cranes or clamp trucks.
