The power and precision you need to move high-value loads
High-value loads, large equipment and tight manufacturing areas are just a few aspects of aerospace manufacturing that challenge material handling in the industry.
Heavy-wheeled loads are often moved using lifting equipment, such as forklift trucks, tow tractors or overhead cranes, resulting in the risk of collisions, damage to equipment and production bottlenecks.
Aerospace manufacturers need material handling solutions that deliver the safe, controlled movement of equipment.
Maximum control and efficiency with license-free electric tuggers
Electric tuggers enable aerospace manufacturers to safely control heavy-wheeled loads and cut downtime through a license-free design.
Compact and powerful, a single operator can precisely move loads such as aero engines, wings and aero structures of 154,000 lbs. and beyond - all with complete control, reducing the risk of damage and maximizing safety.
Supercharge production efficiency with electric tuggers
Whether it’s in the movement of jigs or the precise positioning of aerostructures and composites, electric tuggers help aerospace manufacturers drive production efficiency.
A license-free operation reduces downtime, whilst a compact, intuitive design maximizes safety and control.
Confidently maneuver loads to remove the risk of damage
Maximum visibility empowers operators to push, pull, and position loads with complete confidence - reducing the risk of damage.
Taking safety to new heights
Electric tuggers improve workplace safety by eliminating manual handling and reliance on large material handling equipment.
Smooth, controlled movement of 154,000 lbs. loads and beyond
Powerful performance and intuitive controls guarantee the controlled movement of high-value loads.

Electric tuggers are used by global aerospace manufacturers to improve efficiency and safety when moving loads.
Designed to deliver the controlled movement of aerostructures, wings and composites – electric tuggers ensure loads are carefully moved, reducing the risk of damage.
Our material handling solutions are also used to move:
Electric tuggers are battery powered, with interchangeable batteries or lithium options available, electric tuggers can deliver 24/7 operation to keep your processes moving. Offering zero emissions from the point of use, electric tuggers are ideally suited for indoor use, replacing internal combustion engine powered equipment such as forklifts or tow tractors.
Yes, MasterMover electric tow tugs can be used outside. Built with durability in mind, our electric tuggers deliver consistent traction and performance on uneven surfaces and rough floors.
A range of coupling options are available across the range that maximize performance, security and safety. Custom coupling solutions can also be designed for unique applications.
Yes, our electric tugs 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 machine’s maximum capacity, a more powerful machine may be needed to move the load on a slope. We complete a full evaluation of your application to ensure the best machine is selected for your needs.
