How MasterMover electric tugs are maximising efficiency in Aerospace MRO

For more than two decades, aircraft maintenance repair operations and MRO companies from across the globe have trusted MasterMover’s electric tugs to reduce turnarounds and cut downtime. We’re keeping aircraft maintenance moving with our range of material handling solutions designed for controlled and precise handling of high value loads such as aero engines, landing systems, winglets, staging and much more.

Compared with traditional moving methods, electric tugs unlock the benefits of maximum efficiency in a time-pressured and challenging environment. MasterMover allows a single user to handle even large components quickly but safely and with an all-round view of surrounding obstacles.

Helping our Aerospace MRO customers move forward

How can an electric tug benefit the MRO industry?

  • Reduce the risk of work-related manual handling injuries
  • Compact footprint compared to other load moving methods
  • Low emission – great for both outdoor and indoor use
  • High-quality chassis, built to last

Our range of Aerospace electric tugs & tows

AT TOW

Move loads up to 12,000 kg

MasterMover’s All Terrain TOW and autonomous AGV TOW range of machines provide powerful solutions for moving loads up to 12,000 kg. A single operator can safely and securely connect to any load in seconds with a draw bar, towing eye, or ball hitch.

Built with a strong steel chassis and outer panels, they can be used inside or outside, on slopes and uneven surfaces.

MasterTug

Move loads up to 20,000 kg

Our MasterTug range is designed for moving heavy or large wheeled loads from 2,000 kg up to 20,000 kg. An automatic braking system, variable speed controls and compact size means this machine is ideal for moving loads in areas with restricted space, perfect for any MRO manufacturer.

Power Steered

Move loads up to 30,000 kg+

The most powerful pedestrian electric tug offered by MasterMover, the power-steered range allows a single user to push, pull and effortlessly manoeuvre loads of up to 30,000 kg and beyond using wireless technology. Other great benefits our power steered range offer is auto coupling and self-adjusting hydraulic and weight transfer.

The tugs provide a versatile means of moving heavy goods, such as engines and stands at the facility.
