Ideal For Any Industrial Application When You Need To Safely Roll Heavy Loads, The Super Power Pusher Has The Muscle To Maneuver Up To 150,000 Lbs.

NuStar, Inc. introduces the new and improved Super Power Pusher® pedestrian-operated, battery-powered pusher. The Super Power Pusher™ is a significantly more powerful version of the standard Power Pusher®. It has the same ability to push, pull and maneuver virtually any heavy industrial load on wheels and uses its own modular range of attachments for handling rolling loads up to 150,000 lbs., or those with high rolling resistance.

The Super Power Pusher is a great tool for the processing industry. Kiln cars push these castings into a kiln for heat treatment and pull them out when the cycle is complete. Depending on their size and rating, kiln carts typically hold 7,000-120,000 lbs of product. With a Super Power Pusher, one person can safely maneuver this load without a forklift, other expensive trucks, or additional manpower. With a footprint of less than 9 square yards, it is easy to store and move from site to site. It recharges using a standard 110V outlet. Because it’s battery operated, it does not require liquid fuels and doesn’t emit any fumes.

It can be a great for a number of applications, such as:

  • Moving rail cars, subway cars, jet engines, generators, vats, or tubs.
  • Moving castings into and out of a heat-treating kiln or furnace.
  • Moving piping through the fabrication, blasting and painting operations.
  • Pushing or pulling carts or trailers loaded with equipment or supplies.
  • Pushing or pulling wheeled equipment such as portable cement mixers and trailers.
  • Taking the place of bulldozers or forklifts—expensive equipment that can be diverted to more profitable tasks.
  • Projects where operators do not have a forklift license.
  • Areas or processes that cannot tolerate fumes or exhaust.
  • Areas or processes that need clean, safe, nimble and easy to use equipment.
  • Projects with limited available labor. One person can safely move heavy wheeled loads.

The Super Power Pusher is designed to allow one person to move wheeled loads weighing up to 150,000 lbs. up a 5% grade without forklifts or other more expensive ride-on equipment. It increases productivity by reducing the number of employees needed to move heavy objects. It also creates a safer work environment by reducing the risk of injury and by keeping the load under control. They are less expensive and easier to store than forklifts or tractors, plus operators do not need a license.

The Super Power Pusher has variable speed with soft touch control. It has automatic braking and is anti-runaway. A 3-stage, 3 x 15 amp output 110v or 240v charger is built right in. Simply plug it in to recharge the three batteries. The fully programmable control system lets you set acceleration/deceleration limits. The transaxle design lets the unit operate smoothly on uneven surfaces, indoors or out. It is easy to operate and maintain.

Invented in the 1960s for pushing immobilized vehicles, the Power Pusher is an ideal choice for many harsh and hazardous situations where you need to push or pull wheeled loads. Industries using the Power Pusher include railroad, construction, utilities, heavy machinery, automotive, trucking, paper, hospitals and other manufacturing sites. One person can maneuver and move heavy cars, carts, machinery, instruments, hospital beds, trolleys, racks, drums, pallets, containers and more. The soft touch control allows smooth and accurate maneuvering so even delicate breakable loads move easily and safely.

Reduce the risk of back injury while improving your productivity. Let us show you how the Power Pusher can pay for itself in less than year and help you determine which Power Pusher model and options are best for you.

Options include hitches, tow bars, strobe, motion beeper, ergonomic handle and push plates. Custom options make the Super Power Pusher meet your exact needs!
