Highlighting the Shopping Cart Pusher

Your customers may take shopping carts for granted, simply leaving them where they stand when they're finished. However, it's a problem for your business if the carts aren't available when shoppers need them. Make retrieval more efficient with a Shopping Cart Pusher from DJ Products.

Rounding up stray carts across a parking lot and surrounding area can be a tedious and awkward job. If the weather's bad, it becomes uncomfortable as well. Your employees will appreciate the ease of operating our cart pusher and you'll save labor costs when they have more time to spend on other tasks.

The cart pusher attaches to the back of a line of shopping carts that can number as many as 50. Your employee then moves to the head of the train to steer, using a remote control to operate the pusher. He can then return the carts to the front of the store and either head back for more or start on a different job.

Having a parking lot full of stray shopping carts is messy-looking. In addition, it presents a hazard to customers who have to maneuver around them to enter your lot. Who doesn't get annoyed at finding shopping cart dings on their car? Using a cart pusher can make these issues a thing of the past.

The Shopping Cart Pusher is just one of a full line of material handling solutions available from DJ Products. Our Sales Engineers are standing by at 800.686.2651 to answer your questions and help find the answer to your particular application.


Forklifts have been a mainstay of warehouses and manufacturing facilities for decades. Lately, though, you may have found yourself wondering if it’s time to update with equipment tugs. You’ve heard about the improved efficiency they offer, but are they really worth the investment?

Equipment tugs can definitely add value to your operation, and many of the benefits may be ones you never even realized. Here are some questions to ask about your material handling needs that will demonstrate specific improvements tugs can provide.

  • Are you finding your inventories slowly increasing? Lift trucks work better with full cases and pallets, which results in excess inventory stacked in the aisles. Tugs allow you to replenish materials as needed, keeping inventories lean and floors and aisles clear.
  • Are your customers ordering in smaller quantities? Tugs offer a great solution for split-case and direct-to-consumer picking.
  • Are you seeing a lot of forklift accidents and workman’s comp claims? On-site safety is enhanced with the use of tugs. Their smaller size makes them less obtrusive on the work floor and they’re equipped with safety features such as alarms and power-stops. In addition, tugs are ergonomically engineered for maximum ease of operation.
  • Does the work flow frequently become slowed down by bottlenecks? Easy maneuverability of tugs means a smoother flow of materials throughout your facility.

Whatever application you require, DJ Products has your solution. We offer a wide variety of tugs for warehouses, manufacturing plants, containers, automobiles and aircraft. Call 800.686.2651 to speak to one of our Sales Engineers.
