Abstract (en)

Pusher apparatus e.g. for pushing a row of cigarette packets towards the front of a shelf is disclosed. The leading package is arranged down to drop down a step at one end of a track (1) and be held in the dropped position against a stop (8) by gentle pressure on the entire row from a pusher (3). By locating a damped movement connection, for example a rack (35) engaged by a damped pinion (36) mounted on the pusher (3), the movement of the pusher itself maybe sufficiently damped to enable certain and repeatable dropping of the leading package as the row of packages is advanced, following the repeated removal of the leading one.
