Trusted by the world’s biggest automotive names:
Moves up to 1,200 kg
The SmartMover is a versatile machine range for moving loads from 200 kg up to 1,200 kg. It can be safely and securely connected to loads with a draw bar or hydraulic coupling system. Constructed from high quality steel and featuring an interchangeable battery, the SmartMover is perfectly suited to working in tough manufacturing environments, 24/7.
Moves up to 12,000 kg
MasterMover’s MasterTow 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.
Moves 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 automotive manufacturer.
“Significantly enhances flexibility and safety”
Regional Sales Manager (UK)
MasterMover is the world’s leading manufacturer of electric tugs with great expertise in your sector. That gives us the knowledge and you the reassurance to help you choose the right product for your needs.
We also offer an aftersales support service using regionally based technicians to give you complete peace of mind, wherever you are in the world. Planned preventative maintenance (PPM) programmes, certified operator training, plus flexible finance options help you get the most out of your equipment.
Where traditional manual handling methods require 2 or 3 people to move heavy loads, our electric tugs and tows are single person operated; man power is reduced to one person, freeing up resources.
In a word, ‘control’. A tug provides people with the ability to precisely control the movement of your load.
All of the effort involved with manhandling components or sub-assemblies into position is removed. With little more than fingertip effort, loads can be moved around and stopped exactly where they need to be.
With this level of control over load movement, people and plant can be protected and the risk of damage to parts or injury to operators is drastically reduced.
Yes – all of our electric tugs and tows can push, pull, manoeuvre and brake a wide range of automotive 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.
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.
Yes – we’re an engineering company with over 25 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.
