Maximize Your Aerospace Production Efficiency

Aerospace manufacturers from across the globe have trusted MasterMover’s electric tugs to provide confidence and total control over the movement of heavy, awkward and high-value production line components. We’re keeping manufacturing moving with our range of material handling solutions designed for the precise handling of aero engines, landing systems, winglets, fuselage, tooling, and much more.

Compared with traditional moving methods, electric tuggers unlock the benefits of maximum efficiency in a time-pressured and challenging environment. MasterMover electric tuggers allow a single user to move even large components quickly and safely through a production environment and with an all-round view of surrounding obstacles.

Electric Tuggers in Action

Watch how aerospace manufacturers use electric tuggers to move heavy, high value and awkward loads with ease.

Our range of electric tow tugs enable the precise movement of essential components through a production line, achieved with speed, safety and maximum efficiency.


How electric tuggers benefit the manufacturing process

  • Fast and precise movement of aero structure assemblies
  • Safe movement of 66,000 lbs. by a single operator (over 100 tons utilizing MultiLink Technology)
  • Smooth, controlled movements of mobile work platforms
  • Reduced risk of work-related manual handling injuries
  • Easy movement of work-in-progress between production stages
  • Remote controlled and autonomous electric tuggers enhance manufacturing time and efficiency
  • Compact footprint and zero emission compared to other load moving methods
  • Outdoor and indoor use for efficient movement between buildings
  • High-quality chassis, built to last

Our range of Aerospace electric tuggers & tows


Move loads up to 44,000 lbs.

Our MasterTow range  of electric tow tugs provide powerful load-moving solutions for loads of up to 20,000kg. A single operator can safely and securely connect to any load in seconds with a draw bar, towing eye, or ball hitch.

Capable of handling the toughest of environments, our machines can be used inside or outside, including on slopes and less than perfect surfaces.


Move loads up to 44,000 lbs.

Our MasterTug range is designed for moving heavy or large wheeled loads from 4,400 lbs. up to 24,000 lbs. An automatic braking system, variable speed controls and compact size means this machine is ideal for moving loads in areas with restricted space, perfect for any aerospace manufacturer.


Move loads up to 66,000 lbs.+

The most powerful pedestrian electric tugger offered by MasterMover, the PowerSteered range allows a single user to push, pull and effortlessly maneuver loads of up to 66,000 lbs. and beyond using wireless technology. Other great benefits our power-steered range offer is auto coupling and self-adjusting hydraulic and weight transfer.


Move loads up to 66,000 lbs.


Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) can be transformational when it comes to improving operational efficiency. Featuring best-in-class navigation and safety technologies, AGVs remove the need for human operation, effortlessly maneuvering loads of up to 66,000 lbs. on time, every time.

Who we work with

Your questions, answered

How do electric tuggers connect to a load?

We offer a range of different connection types and our electric tuggers can connect to a variety of components, but we can create custom connections if needed too. MasterMover’s technical sales team will answer any questions you may have – they have years of experience working closely with aerospace companies worldwide.

What can your electric tuggers move?

A MasterMover electric tugger can pull, steer and turn several components through production stages including engines, winglets, staging and more.

Can electric tuggers operate in different conditions?

Yes. MasterMover electric tuggers can cope with rough terrain, indoors and outdoors and in wet or dry conditions. Moving loads between buildings, parts to line and more can be achieved with increased safety and efficiency.

What license does an operator need?

You do not need a license to use an electric tug.

An electric tugger is the most appropriate method of moving wheeled loads. It does not lift the load clear of the ground and so does not come under the same regulations as a forklift truck. With a MasterMover machine, you no longer need to wait for the availability of a forklift truck or overhead crane to move a load.
