The challenges of inflexible material handling

For manufacturers of engines, pump and generators, moving heavy loads and equipment can be a challenge. Often relying on lifting equipment such as forklift trucks and overhead cranes to move loads means many manufacturers struggle to maximize efficiency and create flexible operations.

Flexible solutions to drive operational efficiency

Our electric tuggers allow a single operator to efficiently move heavy loads such as engines, generator components and pumps throughout the production process. With no operator license required, there’s no wasted time in waiting for a licensed driver, maximizing productivity and production flow – empowering engine, generator and pump manufacturers to drive operational efficiency. 

The benefits of electric tuggers for engine, pump and generator manufacturing

Electric tuggers provide the flexibility to easily reconfigure production layouts, meet production quotas and create leaner processes. Delivering the efficient, safe movement of loads of 154,000 lbs. and beyond, electric tuggers help manufacturers streamline material handling processes.

  • Reduce downtime

    Reduce downtime

    Internal transportation is not a value-adding process. License-free electric tuggers streamline the movement of loads to reduce downtime. 

  • Maximum maneuverability

    Maximum maneuverability

    Compact designs deliver unrivaled maneuverability, enabling the seamless movement of large loads in tight spaces.

  • Improve flexibility

    Unlock greater flexibility 

    Unlike fixed production equipment, electric tuggers are flexible, making scaling up or changing production layouts simple.

Maximize visibility when moving the heaviest loads 

The controlled movement of large, heavy loads with electric tuggers – but with the added benefit of remote control operation.

Remote control operation enables operators to stand away from the load to have an ideal vantage point, unlocking greater visibility and allowing operators to maintain a safe distance from loads.   

Trusted by global engine, pump and generator manufacturers 

Global engine, pump and generator manufacturing facilities trust MasterMover’s powerful, compact electric tuggers to make the movement of wheeled loads safer and more efficient…

The partnership of MasterMover electric tugger and Cruser saw a 50% drop in the use of overhead cranes. Further, the need for a fork lift to bridge the gap between two cranes has been eliminated completely.

Your Questions, Answered - FAQs

How are electric tuggers used to move in the manufacturing of engines, pumps and generators?   

Across the industry, electric tow tugs are used to move a wide variety of equipment and components such as:

  • Engines
  • Pumps
  • Generators
  • Components
  • Production equipment
  • Kitting carts
What types of control options are available?  

Electric tuggers are available with multiple control options designed to maximize safety and efficiency. 

  • Pedestrian operated electric tuggers allow a single operator to safely maneuver even the heaviest loads with confidence, removing manual handling and reliance on forklift trucks.  
  • Remote control operation is available to deliver maximum visibility by allowing operators to have the ideal vantage point when moving loads, facilitating the seamless movement of loads in congested areas. 
  • Automated AGV electric tuggers remove the need for an operator, automating the movement of heavy loads to maximize efficiency and resource utilization.   
Is an operator license or training required?   

No, unlike lifting equipment such as forklift trucks and cranes, an electric tug 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.    

Minimal training is required to safely operate an electric tugger and we offer training packages to suit every requirement.      

How are electric tuggers powered?

Electric tuggers are battery-powered, with interchangeable batteries or lithium options available, electric tugs 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 (ICE) powered equipment such as forklifts or tow tractors.
