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 pedestrian operated tugs, electric tugs, electric load pullers or electric tuggers, an Australian-made Electrodrive powered tug is an ergonomically-designed, battery-operated machine. Our range of electric tugs enable a single user to move heavy wheeled loads safely, while reducing the risk of injury—back and side strain—from pushing and pulling.

Safely tow up to 20 tonnes with a battery powered 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 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.

Efficiently move heavy equipment with a powered tug

Powered tugs are used in a wide variety of applications, in a wide variety of industries. From delivering stock inside shopping centres, to moving heavy trolleys through tight hospital corridors, to moving very heavy equipment around factory floors, we have an electric tug that can help you or your staff move heavy loads safely.

Common applications

  • Retail—moving heavy roll cages from loading docks to shelves

  • Healthcare and hospitality—moving heavy linen carts to the laundry

  • Supermarkets and airports—moving long trains of empty trolleys

  • Food and beverage—moving heavy industrial bowls of ingredients and products
