The manual handling solution every safety professional needs…

565,000 workers sustained a non-fatal injury according to the Labour Force Survey in 2021/22. Out of this number, 477,000 workers suffered from work-related musculoskeletal disorders. Musculoskeletal disorders and injuries are often caused by manually pushing, pulling or lifting heavy loads, leading many HSE Managers to look for safer manual handling solutions...

The cost of injuries from manual handling in the workplace is estimated to be in the £billions. (

Safety Managers need effective and simple manual handling solutions to create a safe working environment so employees feel safe and empowered.

The challenges of workplace safety 

The manual movement of goods, equipment and products is used relied on across a range of industries from retail to pharmaceutical. But the pushing, pulling and lifting of loads can result in the risk of injury. Staff are at the greatest risk of injury when:

  • Tasks are repetitive
  • Operations exceed an employee’s abilities (i.e., weight being moved)
  • The layout of tasks is awkward
  • Employees have existing injuries 

Give manual handling the push

Looking to remove manual handling from your operations? If the answer is yes, we can help.

HSE Managers are often left searching for a way to reduce manual handling and improve safety without costly process overhauls.

The solution? Electric tugs! Compact, simple solutions designed to safely move heavy-wheeled loads.

Your questions, answered - FAQs

Can one electric tug really move up to 30,000kg?

Yes, our most powerful machine, the PS7000+ can move over 70,000kg. Though realistically if you're looking to reduce manual handling our smaller capacity ranges are likely more relevant! 

Our Compact Range comprises of best-in-class manual handling solutions, capable of moving loads of up to 6,000kg. 

If you're looking for a higher-capacity solution, our Performance Range features impressive handling solutions for moving 70,000kg and beyond. 

Can I use an electric tug outside?

Yes, our electric tugs can be used inside, outside and on slopes.  Whether it's in facilitating movement from building-to-building, on the shop floor or up inclines, you can be confident in a safe, powerful solution. 

How do electric tugs improve productivity?

Electric tugs are the ideal manual handling solution for Safety Mangers looking to improve workplace safety and boost staff productivity. 

Heavy, awkward loads often require multiple staff members to move by hand. With an electric tug, a single operator can move loads - enabling other staff to focus on more productive tasks. 


Is the movement of loads really effortless with an electric tug?

Yes, electric tugs produce all the power needed to move the load it’s attached to, so the user only has to direct its navigation -- there's no physical effort required. 

Is an operator license required?

As our machines do not lift loads off the ground, they are not subject to LOLER regulations. This means no operator license is required, meaning with some simple overview training - you can be up and running in no time.
