Electrodrive powered tugs can move heavy loads easily

Powered tugs—battery powered and Australian made

Ergonomic materials handling equipment for towing heavy loads

Also known in the industry as a pedestrian operated tug, electric tug, electric trailer puller, electric load puller, electric tugger, trailer tug or power tugger, an Electrodrive powered tug is an ergonomically-designed, battery-operated machine designed for safely moving heavy wheeled loads. Manufactured here in Australia, our range of electric tugs enable a single user to tow up to 20 tonnes, while reducing the risk of injury—back and side strain—from pushing and pulling.

Tow up to 20 tonnes with an Australian-made battery powered tow tug

Built to perform, our range of battery powered tugs make it possible for a single person to move up to 20,000 kg of equipment. Unlike a forklift, you don't need a license to operate a tug, and since they are designed to tow loaded trolleys, carts and trailers alongside a walking operator, you will always have maximum forward visibility, eliminating the risk of collision with other people or equipment. Our tugs are also very manoeuvrable, at home in tight corridors or areas with heavy traffic, and because they're battery powered, they are also quiet, allowing them to be used in hospitals and commercial areas.
