Electric tuggers are creating HUGE production flexibility and saving money in Heavy Plant sub-assembly.

Catching up with demand after the pandemic is a challenge for most heavy plant manufacturers. That’s why companies that want agile, lean, and flexible load-moving solutions are turning to MasterMover electric tuggers. Moving heavy trolleys and bogeys is no problem thanks to our pedestrian-operated tuggers and pushers. Without relying on forklift trucks, floor winches or shunters, the flexibility of a zero-emissions tugger can create faster and more flexible production lines.

MasterMover electric tuggers not only bring a more flexible solution to moving heavy loads, but also, our machines offer phenomenal cost savings compared with forklift trucks, cranes, and winches. With minimum training and no license required, a single operator can achieve precise and safe movement of heavy and large-scale loads even in tight spaces. Production is seamless and output never needs to stop – keeping downtime to a minimum.

How do electric tuggers benefit the Heavy Plant industry?

  • Increased flexibility during sub-assembly
  • Reduced need for forklift trucks
  • Keeps the production line flowing
  • Saves money compared to traditional load-moving methods
  • Better control of loads especially in tight spaces

Uses of electric tuggers in Heavy Plant sub-assembly and production

Move more on carts

Ensure the right parts are available on the manufacturing line by moving them with ease. A single operator can move loads up to 66,000 lbs. with ease.

Building to building

Electric tuggers have no restrictions on inter-building travel, and are very capable outdoors. The flexibility to take loads from building to building will transform your operational flexibility and productivity.

Indoor flexibility

Compared to diesel forklift trucks, our zero-emissions machines allow for unlimited indoor use without compromising the safety environment within a facility. Once in a building, an electric tugger turning circle is far smaller than forklift truck.

Your questions, answered

We need to move up to 66,000 lbs. of steel/parts. Can your tuggers really handle that?

If you’ve never seen an electric tugger in use before, we’re happy to demonstrate how they can move up to 294,000 lbs. along the production line safely. Our machines offer a range of benefits and advantages over other load-moving methods, with cost-savings and flexible movement being some key ones.

A MasterMover electric tugger will fit into your production process, unlocking greater efficiencies and smoother, uninterrupted workflows.

Can your electric tuggers move heavy loads structures outside too?

Yes, our electric tuggers can operate both indoors and outdoors. Each working environment poses its own challenges (for example there may be inside and outdoor areas, as well as tricky surfaces and slopes). That’s why our technical sales team is happy to conduct an on-site survey and make a tailored recommendation based on your needs.

Are your electric tuggers able to lift heavy loads?

Our electric tuggers don’t lift the load but instead use the weight transfer principle. By taking some of the weight and transferring it to the tugger’s traction wheel, the tugger has a huge load capacity, incredible flexibility and gives the user fantastic visibility right around the load when moving.

Will investing in electric tuggers really save us money?

Yes. In most cases electric tuggers are a cost-effective investment compared to forklift trucks and fixed equipment like floor winches.
