About Electric Tugs

Are Electric Tugs and Motorized Tugs different?
No. Electric tugs and motorized tugs both refer to hand-operated battery-powered systems designed for towing materials.

What is an Electric Tug used for?
Electric tuggers are designed to connect with and tow other wheeled material handling systems like bins, racks and trailers. What a tug tows depends on its towing capacity and hitching mechanism.

What are the benefits of an Electric Tug?
An electric tugger makes material handling a safer, more efficient process. This is achieved by eliminating strain on the tug operator from manual material handling and allowing for heavier loads to be transported in single trips.

Why choose an Electric Tug over a Motorized Cart?
A tug is ideal for moving things that are already on a wheeled base like parts on wire racks, bulk materials in wheeled bins, etc. Our representatives help you determine whether an electric tugger or powered platform cart is the right option for your material handling task.
