Maximise 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 tugs unlock the benefits of maximum efficiency in a time-pressured and challenging environment. MasterMover electric tugs 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 tugs in action

Watch how aerospace manufacturers use electric tugs 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.

Our range of Aerospace electric tugs & tows

MasterTow

Move loads up to 20,000kg

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.

MasterTug

Move loads up to 20,000kg

Our MasterTug range is designed for moving heavy or large wheeled loads from 2,000kg up to 20,000kg. 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.

PowerSteered

Move loads up to 30,000kg+

The most powerful pedestrian electric tug offered by MasterMover, the PowerSteered range allows a single user to push, pull and effortlessly manoeuvre loads of up to 30,000kg and beyond using wireless technology. Other great benefits our power steered range offer is auto coupling and self-adjusting hydraulic and weight transfer.

AGV

Move loads up to 30,000kg

AGVTOW

Automated Guided Vehicles (AGVs) have the ability to be transformational when it comes to driving operational efficiency. Featuring best-in-class navigation and safety technologies, AGVs remove the need for human operation, effortlessly manoeuvring loads of up to 30,000kg on time, every time.

Who we work with

Your questions, answered

How do electric tugs connect to a load?

We offer a range of different coupling types and our electric tugs 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 tugs move?

A MasterMover electric tug can pull, steer and turn a number of components through production stages including engines, winglets, staging and more.

Can electric tugs operate in different conditions?

Yes. MasterMover electric tugs 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 licence does an operator need?

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

An electric tug 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 fork lift truck or overhead crane to move a load.
