After Moving into a New shop I was forced to find alternative Methods for Moving the Trailers.

I purchased a this PowerWheel Which requires a Deep Cell Battery to be bolted to the tounge of the Trailers. The unit Plugs into the Battery & Effortlessly Moves the trailers & You can even Spin the Trailer On a Dime.

There is Also a 2 Wheel Battery on Board model & a Very Cool Remote Control Version. I prefer the Lighter PowerWheel as It can be easily carried around.

It weighs only about 15lbs because the Power Source-Deep Cell Battery- is Bolted on the Trailer tounges.

The unit has a Forward & Reverse button on the handle & will pull or push any of my loaded trailers up a small incline with No effort.

You can also Zero turn your trailer.

That's really cool. reminds me of the cart pushers that some walmarts have, it's like a miniature airport tug that you walk behind and it pushes stacks of carts for you, even has a radio control so you can guide them at the front of the line while it pushes and steers. I think they're electric or LP not sure. Really cool to watch...

Mr. Keith, there is an All Terrain Tire available for the Unit. If you are using the Powerwheel solely on pavement the AT Tire does not provide enough tread to ground contact & the Wheel can spin.

So you're saying you don't drive your powerwheel off road while going from job site to job site, only on the pavement?

i would guess you are using this because you have tight turns at your new shop and cannot manuver very well with a truck when backing into your bays.

it would be nice to even use at home for me since I have a very tight garage fit with my trialer and junk on each side. have just enough room to get in.

While My new shop is under construction there are many Obsticles in the Loading area where the Trailers come in for the Night. With the Powerwheel I can maneuver the Trailers from the street if backing them in is impossible. They can also be Jockeyed around Quite easily.

I would not recommend using them for your Routes as they are Very Slow. However, they may work well in One subdivision We do, where the truck could drop Off the Trailer & the Guys Could Powerwheel it Up the street since we do the entire Lot.
