Maximum control and manoeuvrability of all-swivelling loads

The MasterHandler range is specifically designed to deliver the controlled movement of loads weighing up to 4,000kg that are fitted with all-swivelling castors. 

Featuring a unique design centred around delivering maximum control, the MasterHandler enables operators to easily steer and position heavy loads that ordinarily would be difficult to move in a controlled way. With adjustable support legs available to deliver a controlled fixed point, the MasterHandler can provide a turnkey solution to the movement of loads with all swivelling castors. 

The MasterHandler has a compact machine footprint and is ideal for use in confined areas, facilitating safe and precise movements where space is at a premium. The range uses an array of hydraulic coupling options to deliver consistent performance and guarantee load security.

    Your Questions, Answered – FAQs

    Can the MasterHandler work in tight spaces?

    The compact design of the MasterHandler provides a tight turning circle, making it perfectly suited to working within tight spaces and delivering the precise movement of wheeled loads. 

    Can the MasterHandler range push and pull?

    Yes, the MasterHandler range can push, pull and steer heavy loads weighing up to 4,000kg.

    What is the maximum speed?

    With the Two Speed Selector switch, ‘Tortoise’ mode enables you to maximise control and operate the machine at a slower speed setting of 1.2kph. In the faster ‘Hare’ setting, the machine’s speed is 3kph.

    Machines can be set with custom speed settings where required, with a maximum programmable speed of 6kph. 

    How does the MasterHandler control loads with all-swivelling castors?

    With adjustable support legs available to deliver a controlled fixed point, the MasterHandler can safely control swivelling castors. The design of the MasterHandler stops uncontrolled sideways movement and the hydraulic coupling creates an unbreakable connection between the electric tug and the attached load.

    How far can the MasterHandler range travel on one charge?

    Battery performance varies from model to model and is influenced by load weight, battery capacity, environmental conditions and usage.

    Individual battery performance data can be found on the Technical Specification Sheets for each model.

    How do they connect?

    A range of coupling options are available across the range that maximise performance, security and safety. Custom coupling solutions can also be designed for unique applications. 

    Can they work on slopes?

    Yes, the MasterHandler range can work safely on slopes.

    When it comes to electric tugs, it’s important to understand that for every degree of slope involved, the maximum load capacity of the machine is reduced, just as pushing a car on the level requires less force than on a slope. Therefore, if the weight of the load is already close to the maximum capacity of the machine, a more powerful machine may be needed to move the load on a slope.
