Is it too heavy to move? Our Powered Electrodrive Tugs will do the job for you!

Made in Australia, these powered units are incredibly important when moving heavy loads around your workplace. As a vital piece of equipment when improving Workplace Health and Safety procedures, they are strong enough to tow a range of goods, including carts, trolleys and equipment. Some common applications include delivering stock inside shopping centres, moving trolleys and equipment around narrow hospital corridors and moving goods around factories.

Using a Powered Tug can help your staff maximise their productivity, simplify their processes and comfortably complete tasks efficiently. All units are battery-powered, which means they operate quietly and with zero emissions. Available in a range of models, these tugs can be customised as per your requirements.

Move heavy loads with our Powered Electrodrive Tugs!

Also known as electric tugs, electro tugs and electric load pullers, our Powered Electrodrive Tugs allow you to move up to 20,000 kilograms of equipment.
