Australian-made electric tug

Electrodrive's powerful battery operated Tug Axis is available in one (1T) or two tonne (2T) towing capacities. A wide variety of hitches are available for easy attachment to trolleys, making it ideal for industrial towing or transporting medical carts around hospitals, moving heavy specialist equipment or moving heavy trolleys around factories or retail. 

Ergonomically designed tug

Using the tiller handle to tow the tug, the operator is in front of the load, increasing visibility and reducing the risk of collisions. 

Powered towing can eliminate push/pull injuries caused by manually moving heavy trolleys or repetitive movements. Read more about our ergonomically designed tugs.

Typical applications

The Tug Axis 1/2T is suitable for retail and light industrial towing. It can be used in airports, factories, warehouses, apartment buildings, or large facilities. This powered tug is also ideal for transporting medical carts around hospitals or moving heavy specialist equipment.
