Push/Pull distance.

Push/Pull will move the selected elements (objects, vertices, edges or faces) closer together (Push) or further apart (Pull). Specifically, each element is moved towards or away from the center by the same distance. This distance is controlled by moving the mouse up (Push) or down (Pull), numeric input or through slider control.

Usage

Select the elements you want to operate on and activate the Push/Pull transform tool. The Push/Pull tool can be invoked from the Object/Mesh ‣ Transform ‣ Push/Pull menu or by pressing Spacebar and using the operator search menu to search for Push or Pull. The amount of movement given to the selection can be determined interactively by moving the mouse or by typing a number. Pressing Return will confirm the transformation. The confirmed transformation can be further edited by pressing F6 or by going into the Tool Shelf T and altering the Distance slider provided that no other actions take place between the Push/Pull transform confirmation and accessing the slider.

Note that the result of the Push/Pull transform is also dependent on the number and type of selected elements (objects, vertices, faces, etc.). See below for the result of using Push/Pull on a number of different elements.
