Australian-made ergonomic electric tug

The Tug Classic pedestrian operated electric tug is another powerful workhorse in the Tug range. Able to tow up to 3.5 tonnes, the Classic is designed to improve safety and efficiency, whilst reducing the risk of accidents that can occur when manually moving very heavy loads.

Ergonomically designed, the powered Tug Classic positions the user in front-of-the-load. The tiller control provides a natural walking posture, reducing the risk of strain or injury. With maximum forward vision the risk of collisions with pedestrians or objects is minimised. Read more about Electrodrive's ergonomically designed tugs.

Typical applications

The Tug Classic is suitable for airports, factories, warehouses, apartment buildings or large facilities. Also suitable for transporting heavy specialist equipment weighing up to 3.5 tonnes.
