Motorized Tugs for Moving Loads on Swivel Casters

A load mounted on all swivel casters has the advantage of a very small turning radius, making it highly maneuverable. The disadvantage is that it is not easy to control which direction each caster turns as the load is moved. Because each caster is free to rotate in any direction, the load is highly sensitive to any slope or chamfer in the floor and prone to “rolling downhill”. Furthermore, it is difficult to stop/control the momentum of a heavy cart.  This increases the risk of injury for material handling as it requires additional effort not only to move the load but, also to accurately position and steer the load. This often results in modest sized loads requiring two or more people to move them safely. The PowerTug™ is specifically designed to overcome these issues and enable a single person to both move and accurately steer these type of loads

I just wanted to tell people how good your product is. I started working at my shop in 1994. We still use that same Automotive PowerPusher nearly every day!! Sure, we’ve replaced batteries and a chain just recently, but all in all, this thing has been the workhorse of our shop. Something that has lasted almost 30 years must be right!"

The E-750 Electric Wheelbarrow is working out great! We loaded up the wheelbarrow and drove up a 40-degree ramp and unloaded into the back of a dump truck."

We have had our Automotive PowerPusher for 25 years. It has worked flawlessly all those years."

Common Products for Moving Loads With Swivel Casters

{:}{:mx}Una carga montada en todas las ruedas giratorias tiene la ventaja de un radio de giro muy pequeño, lo que es altamente maniobrable. La desventaja es que no es fácil controlar en qué dirección gira cada rueda cuando la carga se mueve. Debido a que cada rueda está libre para girar en cualquier dirección, la carga es muy sensible a cualquier inclinación o chaflán en el piso y propensa a “rodar cuesta abajo”. Además, es difícil de parar/controlar el impulso de un carro pesado. Esto aumenta el riesgo de lesiones por manejo de materiales ya que requiere de esfuerzo adicional no sólo para mover la carga sino también para posicionar y dirigir la carga con precisión. Esto a menudo resulta en cargas de tamaño modesto que requieren dos o más personas para moverlas con seguridad. El PowerTug™ está específicamente diseñado para superar estos problemas y permitir que una sola persona mueva y dirija con precisión este tipo de cargas

{:}{:pt}A carga montada em todas as rodas giratórias tem a vantagem de um raio de giro muito pequeno, o que é altamente manobrável. A desvantagem é que não é fácil controlar a direção que cada roda gira à medida que a carga é deslocada. Como cada roda é livre para girar em qualquer direção, a carga é muito sensível a qualquer inclinação ou chanfro no piso e propensa a “rolar moro a baixo”. Além disso, é difícil parar/controlar o impulso de um carrinho pesado.  Isso aumenta o risco de lesões derivadas do manuseio de material, pois requer mais esforço não apenas para mover a carga, mas também para posicionar e orientar a carga com precisão. Isso geralmente resulta em cargas de tamanho modesto que exigem duas ou mais pessoas para movê-las com segurança.

{:}{:zh}安放在旋转脚轮上的负载具有转弯半径很少的优点,因此非常容易操作。其缺点是负载在移动时每个脚轮的转动方向不易控制。 由于每个脚轮可在任意方向自由转动,因此负载对地面上的任何斜坡或斜面非常敏感,易于向下坡方向滚动。此外,很难停止/控制推车质量较大时的运动趋势。这也增加了物料搬运时的受伤风险,因为不但需要用力移动负  载,还需要精确地定位和操纵负载。这往往会导致适度大小的负载需要两个或两个以上的人才能安全地移动。 PowerTug™ 设计初衷旨在解决上述问题,确保一名操作人员可同时移动和准确地操纵这类负载。
