Your questions, answered

How can an electric tug help with flexible production needs?

The often bespoke nature and flexible requirements of commercial vehicle production means you can benefit from the freedom and agility offered by electric tugs. Whether it’s building sub-assemblies from multiple components, bringing chassis to the line or even quickly scaling up production, the moveable nature of electric tugs means you’re not constrained by fixed equipment or by the limitations and potential dangers of manual handling or a forklift.

How do electric tugs protect your people, plant and product?

Unlike a forklift, no licence is required, anyone can use a tug with minimal training. A tug provides people with the ability to precisely control the movement of your load. With little more than fingertip effort, loads can be moved around and stopped exactly where they need to be.

With this level of control, the risk of injury to operators is significantly reduced as is the risk of damage to the load being moved.

Is it possible to operate an electric tug in confined spaces?

Yes – all of our electric tugs and tows can push, pull, manoeuvre and brake a wide range of commercial vehicle components and production equipment. The flexible steering on our machines enables them to rotate loads on their corner axis. This unparalleled range of movement means that our tugs can move loads in even the tightest of operating environments.

What materials are used in the construction?

All of our electric tugs are ‘built tough’ from high quality steel, zinc passivated and powder coated. By avoiding the use of fragile plastic for the outer panels, the risk of damage to the machine is minimised. This means increased reliability and long service life for you.

I think I need something different; can you help?

Yes – we’re an engineering company with over 20 years’ experience.

If we can’t solve your moving and handling problem with our standard range then we can explore creating a custom solution just for you.
