    Your Questions, Answered – FAQs

    Can you use electric tugs outside?

    Yes, MasterMover electric tugs can be used outside. Built with durability in mind, the SmartMover range delivers optimum traction even outside.

    Purpose-built for industrial environments, the SmartMover range can be used inside, outside and on slopes. With models in the range rated up to IP44, the range can be used outside in wet environments.

    Can the SmartMover range push and pull?

    Yes, the SmartMover range can push, pull and steer heavy loads weighing up to 2,000kg. The SmartMover range is perfectly suited to delivering the effortless movement of loads previously moved by hand – eliminating the risk of manual handling injuries.

    What is the maximum speed?

    With the Two Speed Selector switch, ‘Tortoise’ mode enables you to maximise control and operate the machine at a slower speed setting of 1.2kph. In the faster ‘Hare’ setting, the machine’s speed is 3kph.

    Machines can be set with custom speed settings where required, with a maximum programmable speed of 6kph. 

    How far can the SmartMover range travel on one charge?

    Battery performance varies from model to model and is influenced by load weight, battery capacity, environmental conditions and usage.

    Individual battery performance data can be found on the Technical Specification Sheets for each model.

    How do SmartMover electric tugs connect to the load?

    A range of simple to use coupling options are available across the range that maximise performance, security and safety.

    Custom coupling solutions can also be designed for unique applications. 

    Can they work on slopes?

    Yes, the SmartMover range 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 maximum capacity of the machine, a more powerful machine may be needed to move the load on a slope.

    We carry out a full evaluation of your application to ensure any machine is suited to your needs.
