The Power Pusher from NuStar Inc. is a pedestrian-operated, battery-powered pusher that can be used in warehouses, manufacturing facilities, rail yards, and facilities with rail sidings. In rail applications, the Power Pusher takes the place of an expensive forklift by pushing 150,000-pound railcars into a maintenance facility and around the rail yard. Compared with forklift trucks, the Power Pusher is more readily available, less expensive, and easier to transport.
Unlike forklifts or other ride-on equipment, the Power Pusher runs on batteries, so it does not consume expensive gasoline, diesel, or propane or emit harmful exhaust or fumes. It comes with a built-in battery charger that plugs into a standard outlet. With a footprint of less than two square yards, the Power Pusher is easily stored at a job site and is easy to transport from site to site. One person can use the nimble Power Pusher to efficiently and safely push, pull, and maneuver wheeled loads of up to 150,000 pounds or those with high rolling resistance.
