    Your Questions, Answered – FAQs

    What technology options are available on the MasterTow range?

    Remote Control: Excellent visibility for easy positioning, with control at the fingertips of the operator.

    Wireless AutoSteer: Movement using line follow navigation with speed controlled by the operator via remote control.

    Line follow: Autonomous operation using line follow navigation with optional barcode scanning for automatic speed adjustment, best-in-class safety systems reduce risk.

    Can you use electric tow tugs outside?

    Yes, MasterMover electric tow tugs can be used outside. Built with durability in mind, the MasterTow range delivers consistent traction and performance on uneven surfaces and rough floors. Purpose-built for industrial environments, the MasterTow range can be used inside, outside and on slopes.

    Can the MasterTow range push and pull?

    Yes, the MasterTow range can push and pull. The design of an electric towing machine means that pulling performance is greater than pushing performance, but with solutions capable of moving up to 20,000kg, our team can advise you on which model is best for your application.

    What is the maximum speed of the MasterTow range?

    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 MasterTow 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 for each model can be found on the Technical Specification Sheets available for download.

    How does the MasterTow range connect to loads?

    A range of coupling options are available across the range that maximise performance, security and safety. The tow pin coupling offers a plug-and-play solution perfectly suited to connecting to a range of drawbars. 

    Can the MasterTow range work on slopes?

    Yes, the MasterTow range 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.
