Safely moving heavy equipment and materials in defense
Sensitive, high-value loads must be moved with precision without compromising safety or efficiency.
Large, cumbersome handling equipment is often used to move heavy loads within defense manufacturing facilities, resulting in costly damage to products and the risk of injury.
Likewise, manual handling remains an issue for defense manufacturers, with the movement of loads often requiring multiple people and presenting the risk of injury.
Maximum control and efficiency with license-free electric tuggers
Electric tuggers enable defense manufacturers to safely control heavy-wheeled loads and cut downtime through a license-free design.
Compact and powerful, a single operator can precisely move heavy loads weighing up to 66,000 lbs. with complete control, reducing the risk of damage and maximizing safety.
Supercharge production efficiency with electric tuggers
Whether it’s in the movement of submarine components or the precise positioning of sensitive spacecraft, electric tuggers help defense providers drive operational efficiency.
A license-free operation reduces downtime and operational flexibility, whilst a compact, intuitive design maximizes safety and control.
Confidently maneuver loads
Maximum visibility empowers operators to push, pull and position loads with complete confidence.
Compact machines remove the risk of damage
Boasting a compact design, electric tuggers deliver precise movements, preventing the risk of damage to loads.
Controlled movement of 66,000 lbs. loads and beyond
Powerful performance and intuitive controls guarantee the controlled movement of high-value loads.

Electric tugs are used by global defense manufacturers to improve efficiency and safety when moving loads such as:
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 maximizes performance, security and safety. Custom coupling solutions can also be designed for unique applications.
Yes, our electric tuggers 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 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.
