Tug Tough—10T

Industrial powered tug with a 10,000kg tow capacity

Tug Tough 20 tonne


Heavy duty electric tug for towing up to 10 tonnes

Our Tug Tough pedestrian operated electric tugs are the perfect heavy duty workhorse for loads up to 10 tonnes.

The Tug Tough utilises a powerful 48 V drive system to allow a single operator to hitch to and move big loads. The Tug Tough can be fitted with an optional hydraulic lifting hitch available for either capacity.

Just like the other tugs in the family, the Tug Tough allows the operator to walk in front of the heavy load, allowing maximum forward vision and eliminating the possibility of accidents when negotiating turns. The Tug Tough converts a difficult and often dangerous operation into an easy to move motorised assembly.

The Tug Tough incorporates all of the features you would expect on an Electrodrive product and is designed to improve safety and efficiency, whilst reducing the risk of accidents that can occur when manually moving extremely heavy loads.
