Electric Pushers: The Unsung Heroes of the Warehouse

While many overlook the contribution of electric pushers; here at Tractive Power, we consider them the unsung heroes of the warehouse. While they may not be the focal point in pushing towards automation, digitising and modernising operations in warehouses; they ensure warehouses all over the world keep moving.

How COVID Has Changed Warehouse Working

The Coronavirus pandemic has meant that facilities have had to change the way they work with new social distancing measures and a push towards ‘touchless’ processes to help protect their workers.

Some companies are shorthanded at the moment and are attempting to do more with less, with Covid-19 reinforcing the need for automated tools such as electric tugs.

While in the past clients may have chosen their set battery-powered-tug from a catalogue; Tractive Power now offers a bespoke design to suit your specific needs. This allows you to choose your own casters and wheels plus brakes and any other safety add-ons you need.

The increasing of COVID-related workplace shifts and keeping workers six feet apart from one another is why battery-powered pushers continued to be used frequently.

Your Choice of Electric Pushers

Here at Tractive Power, we offer four different types of electric pushers that will move heavy loads in a safe and efficient way.

With the ability to lift loads of 5000kg and 12000 kg this means you are able to move loads that would be impossible to relocate manually.

One of our most popular models is the TP250 Vehicle Mover which is used in the automotive sector to relocate vehicle parts between build stations.

This model has a top speed of 6kph and a lifting power of 1000w on a compact footprint.
