NuStar, Inc. (Shakopee, MN) has developed the new Super Power Pusher, which is a pedestrian-operated, battery-powered pusher with a new handle. It can push, pull, and maneuver almost any heavy industrial load, and can use a range of attachments for handling rolling loads up to 150,000 pounds. The new handle encircles the hands for more protection when maneuvering a load or turning corners. Other features include:
- Fingertip speed control and a built-in belly kill switch.
- The ability to move loads weighing up to 150,000 pounds up a 5 percent grade without using forklifts or other ride-on equipment.
- Automatic breaking, which prevents runaways.
- A fully programmable control system that lets users set acceleration/deceleration limits.
