Moving 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.
I have had a few people try it out with our custom cart and they like it very much! It makes the job quite simple. We like the speed of it, how it handles, and how easy it is to maneuver.

I am impressed with Nu-Star’s willingness to do a custom design for such a challenging application and I am happy with the final product.
