DJ Products Car Caddy – Electric Car Pusher
Electric Car Pusher Applications
Our CarCaddy Electric Car Pusher is battery operated and designed to push cars and vehicles that have pneumatic tires, such as cars, trucks, campers, and buses. It can push cars and trucks up to 20,000 pounds on flat ground and up to 10,000 pounds on 3% grade. And if that is not enough, you can opt for a Heavy Duty Motor/Transaxle Power Upgrade so you can push cars and trucks that weigh up to 50,000 pounds. You can also opt to add foam filled tires, snow and ice tires, a safety horn or a flashing light.
Keeping valuable employees injury free and keeping cars free of damage is the only way that a busy car lot or mechanic shop can effectively keep up with these increases in business. Customers don’t want to experience excessive delays when their cars are being serviced and few customers would be willing to pay sticker price for a car that has been unnecessarily damaged on the lot.
Investing in a piece of equipment like the CarCaddy electric car pushers increases productivity at the same time that it reduces the risk of damage and injury. This allows auto lots and mechanic shops to keep up with increases in volume, improve service levels and generate additional profits.
Many vehicle manufacturers use a CarCaddy car and vehicle pusher to push the units short distances down a production line from station to station. A CarCaddy also has plenty of power to push a stalled vehicle at service centers or along highways.
The primary benefit of using the CarCaddy electric car and vehicle pusher is to prevent the strains associated with pushing stalled cars, buses, heavy trucks, and other vehicles. Overextending the body when manually pushing cars from the parking lot into a service center garage can be extremely harmful to the worker, as can pushing a stalled vehicle from the highway to the shoulder. When a car and vehicle pusher is used for these routine tasks, damage to the body (including back and shoulder strain) is minimized, which keeps employees healthy and reduces workers’ compensation.
The Car Caddy also prevents damages associated with moving these stalled vehicles using another vehicle. In cases where manpower is not available, other vehicles are used to bump up against the back end of the stalled vehicle. Both vehicles can be dented, scratched, or cracked due to this practice. The front push pad of the Car Caddy car and vehicle pusher is made of a soft, durable, padded material designed to preserve the paint and integrity of the back end of the stalled vehicle while also protecting the car and vehicle pusher.

Must Have Features!
|Infinitely Variable Speed Control – the variable speed handlebar twist grip helps the operator to start moving a vehicle GENTLY. Alternatives with jerky “ON or OFF” throttles can’t compete! The variable speed twist grip is a must have for outdoor applications. The ability to “feather” the throttle helps the operator MAINTAIN TRACTION when moving a vehicle in wet or icy conditions. This reduces the risk of losing traction, slips, falls and damage to the vehicle.|
|The CarCaddy Car pusher’s unique “tilting motion” and adjustable push pad are must have features to reduce damage to vehicles. Our unique “tilting motion” and adjustable push pad allow this vehicle pusher to gently rest under the bumper. Accelerating forward causes the car pusher to tilt backwards, raising the pad and transferring weight to the drive tires for traction. The adjustable push pad allows the operator to ensure that the car pusher meets the bumper in the optimal position, reducing the risk of damage to the vehicle.|
|Reliability is key with any piece of equipment used in the shop. Built with the needs of auto shop professionals in mind, this electric vehicle pusher has a 36v/3 Battery system. This allows for long run times between charges, and allows your employees to move cars in and out of the shop throughout the day. Dual battery systems are far more likely to let you down when you need them most.|
|Built to both PUSH and PULL vehicles, the CarCaddy Car Pusher weighs more than 550 pounds. This is KEY for situations where access to the back of the vehicle is limited. Position the CarCaddy car puller in front of the vehicle, run a strap from the CarCaddy to the car, and pull. The slow, easy starts using the variable speed twist grip ensure that you maintain traction and steady acceleration. The CarCaddy electric car mover is the solution to pulling a vehicle in wet or icy conditions.|
|It’s not uncommon for bumpers and moldings to get damaged when a car is being moved from the lot into a service bay. The CarCaddy car pusher was designed to reduce the risk of damage when moving a car. The Adjustable Push Pad allows the operator to set the push pad in the optimal pushing position, reducing the risk of damage to the vehicle.|
