TrailerCaddy offers alternative to shunt trucks

by Truck News

LITTLE FALLS, Minn. – A new TrailerCaddy Terminal Tractor has been developed, which the manufacturer says will cost about a quarter of the cost of a new shunt truck.

The TrailerCaddy allows the operator to reposition trailers while walking alongside the unit. It features a wagon wheel steering mechanism.

The battery-powered TrailerCaddy can be operated by any employee, eliminating the need for dedicated shunt truck drivers. Removable ball and pintle attachments allow it to pull bumper pull equipment and cargo.

A push pad can be used to push stalled heavy trucks. For more,  visit the company’s Website here.
