Your questions, answered

How does an electric tugger help increase efficiency?

Where traditional manual handling methods require 2 or 3 people to move heavy loads, our electric tuggers and tows are single person operated; man power is reduced to one person, freeing up resources.

How can electric tuggers protect your people, plant and product?

In a word, ‘control’. A tugger 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.

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

Yes – all of our electric tuggers and tows can push, pull, maneuver 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 tuggers can move loads in even the tightest of operating environments.

What materials are used in the construction?

All of our electric tuggers 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 minimized. 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 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.
