Also known in the industry as pedestrian operated tugs, electric tugs, electric load pullers or electric tuggers, an Electrodrive powered tug is a machine designed specifically for allowing a single operator to move heavy wheeled loads safely, reducing the risk of back and side strain from pushing and pulling.
Built to perform, our range of battery powered tugs make it possible for one person to move up to 20,000 kilograms of equipment. Unlike a forklift, you don't need a license to operate a tug, and since they are designed to tow loaded trolleys and trailers alongside a walking operator, you will always have maximum forward visibility, eliminating the risk of collision with other people or equipment. Our tugs are also very manoeuvrable, at home in tight corridors or areas with heavy traffic, and because they're battery powered, they are also quiet, allowing them to be used in hospitals and commercial areas.
Powered tugs are used in a wide variety of applications, in a wide variety of industries. From delivering stock inside shopping centres, to moving heavy trolleys through tight hospital corridors, to moving very heavy equipment around factory floors, we will have an electric tug that can help your staff move heavy loads safely.
