Streamline your material handling processes with our Compact electric tugs and tows. Designed to deliver the safe, controlled movement of loads up to 6,000kg, businesses across industrial manufacturing, retail and logistics trust MasterMover electric tugs to improve safety and efficiency.
Eliminating manual handling and reducing the risk of injuries in the movement of loads, our Compact electric tugs empower a single operator to move heavy loads with complete confidence.
Boasting innovative designs, electric tugs and tows enable the seamless movement of loads in the tightest of spaces, delivering maximum manoeuvrability and control.
An effective alternative to traditional material handling equipment, electric tugs do not require a license to operate, driving operational efficiency and productivity.

Your Questions, Answered – FAQs
No, unlike lifting equipment such as forklift trucks and cranes, an electric tug does not require a license to operate. A license-free operation reduces downtime and maximises operational efficiency, reducing wasted time waiting for a licensed driver.
Minimal training is required to safely operate an electric tug and we offer training packages to suit every requirement.
No, electric tugs do not lift the load. They are designed to keep the load safely on the ground, maximising safety and reducing risk.
Yes, MasterMover electric tow tugs can be used outside. Built with durability in mind, our electric tugs deliver consistent traction and performance on uneven surfaces and rough floors.
Purpose-built for industrial environments, the Compact range can be used inside, outside and on slopes.
Yes, our electric tugs can work safely on slopes. When it comes to electric tugs and tows, 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.
