Motorized Tugs

Ergo-Express® Motorized Tugs are a safe and compact solution for moving heavy materials, equipment, and supplies that are already on a wheeled base. With the power tugger, one staff member can safely perform the same task that may currently take multiple trips or multiple staff.

The PHS West, Inc. line of electric tugs are commonly used in many different industries. No matter if you are moving heavy manufacturing equipment or food distribution carts, our electric tug is the right product and PHS West, Inc. has the most experience in the material handling world to help you select the perfect product.

The multiple models of Ergo-Express® Motorized Tug will allow you to fit the best tool to your specific application and budget.  At PHS West, Inc. we take the definition of ergonomics literally in everything we do by fitting the tool to the person and not trying to make the person fit the tool.

The Ergo-Express® Model E4000S Motorized Tug has the smallest footprint of any comparable tugger available on the market. A towing capacity of up to 1,500lb. will allow you to transport heavy wheeled loads without risk of push or pull injuries without inhibiting staff efficiency.

Tug Hitches

Tug hitches will link the tug to whatever product is being pulled. Each tug hitch can be customized to fit your unique application. Hitch options are unique to the item the tug is pulling.

Coupling Hitches

Coupling Hitches connect the products in a “train” so that multiples can be pulled at one time. The product being pulled or connected determines what hitch will function best.
