Tow heavy bins up ramps using the Tug Rise

The all new Tug Rise battery operated electric tug has been specially designed to tow on steep slopes or ramps of 15 degrees.

Safely tow up to 1,000 kg up driveway ramps (on a 15 degree ramp or incline) or tow up to 5,000 kg on a flat surface. (Unlike the Tug Axis and Tug Tough which are rated for 6 degree ramps, the Tug Rise is rated for extreme driveway ramps of up to 15 degrees.)

If you're looking for a bin tug, the Tug Rise is suitable for moving 660 litre and 1100 litre bins up and down ramps. Universal towing devices are available for 660 and 1100 litre bins. We can also supply directional lock mechanisms for swivel castors to help control the steering of your bins.

As with all the electric tugs in our range, the Tug Rise is designed to improve safety and efficiency, while reducing the risk of accidents that can occur when manually moving very heavy loads.
