About Us

Power Pusher® specializes in pedestrian-operated, battery-powered tugs that safely meet the diverse and challenging needs of pushing or pulling wheeled or semi-wheeled loads from ¼ ton to 225 tons mobilizing heavy rolling stock and more. If It Rolls . . . We can Move It.


Power Pusher’s Rail Movers ™ are remote controlled, battery-powered vehicles that enable a single person to effectively move massive rail cars weighing 10 to 225 tons.  The flexible movers operate on or off rails with remote control operation for increased dexterity and efficiency. Powered hitch connects and disconnects to rail cars for easy contact and performance.
