The MasterTow range of powerful, easy-to-use electric tow tugs, is ideally suited to towing loads weighing up to 20,000kg. The range uses its own weight to deliver consistent traction, enabling the effortless movement of loads both inside, outside and on slopes.
Boasting intuitive operator controls and safety built-in as standard, the range provides operators with complete control when moving heavy loads. With a simple and effective coupling system, the MasterTow range guarantees load security and is perfectly suited to moving individual and multiple loads linked together.
Take advantage of innovative technology with Electric Steer (ES), available from the TOW600 ES upwards. With Electric Steer, benefit from instantaneous steering and added performance in adverse conditions. The MasterTow range is available with Remote Control, for maximum operator visibility, and Autonomous (AGV) solutions for maximum ROI, safety and efficiency.

Yes, MasterMover electric tow tugs can be used outside. Built with durability in mind, the MasterTow range delivers consistent traction and performance on uneven surfaces and rough floors. Purpose-built for industrial environments, the MasterTow range can be used inside, outside and on slopes.
Yes, the MasterTow range can push and pull. The design of an electric towing machine means that pulling performance is greater than pushing performance, but with solutions capable of moving up to 20,000kg, our team can advise you on which model is best for your application.
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.
Battery performance varies from model to model and is influenced by load weight, battery capacity, environmental conditions and usage. Individual battery performance data for each model can be found on the Technical Specification Sheets available for download.
A range of coupling options are available across the range that maximise performance, security and safety. The tow pin coupling offers a plug-and-play solution perfectly suited to connecting to a range of drawbars.
Yes, the MasterTow range can work safely on slopes. When it comes to electric tugs and tows, 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. We carry out a full evaluation of your application to ensure any machine is suited to your needs.
