Trailer Moving System

Up to 44,000 lbs.

Safe, efficient and simple movement of trailers, in manufacturing or in the yard, with no operator license required... 

The Trailer Moving System is specifically designed to move unladen trailers weighing up to 44,000 lbs. From articulated trailers to flat beds and low loaders, the TMS range of electric tuggers allows the effortless movement of heavy trailers inside, outside and on slopes.  

Featuring a universal kingpin connection, the Trailer Moving System connects securely to any commercial trailer. Once securely connected, the Trailer Moving System safely raises one end of the trailer off the ground, enabling a full range of movement.

Fully electric and with no license required, the Trailer Moving System prevents bottlenecks in moving trailers for both distribution depots and manufacturers alike. Boasting intuitive operator controls and safety built-in as standard, the range provides operators with complete control when moving heavy trailers.

A compact machine design maximizes visibility and enables operators to easily maneuver large commercial trailers in even the tightest of spaces.

    Your Questions, Answered – FAQs

    Can the Trailer Moving System work outside?

    Yes, the Trailer Moving System is perfectly designed to move trailers outdoors around depots and yards. 

    Is a license required to operate the Trailer Moving System?

    No, unlike shunters or lorries, the Trailer Moving System does not require a license to operate. A license-free operation reduces downtime and maximizes operational efficiency, reducing wasted time waiting for a licensed driver. 

    What is the maximum speed of the Trailer Moving System?

    With the Two Speed Selector switch, the ‘Tortoise’ mode enables you to maximize control and operate the machine at a slower speed setting of .75mph. In the faster ‘Hare’ setting, the machine’s speed is 1.86mph. Machines can be set with custom speed settings where required, with a maximum programmable speed of 3.73ph. 

    How far can the Trailer Moving System 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 to trailers?

    A range of coupling options is available across the range that maximizes performance, security and safety.

    Custom coupling solutions can also be designed for unique applications. 

    Can they work on slopes?

    Yes, the Trailer Moving System can work safely on slopes.

    When it comes to electric tuggers, 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.
