Australian-made ergonomic electric tug

The Tug Classic pedestrian operated electric tug is another powerful workhorse in the Electrodrive powered tug range. Able to tow up to 3.5 tonnes, the Tug Classic is designed to improve safety and efficiency, while 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.

Battery operated and rechargeable, the Tug Classic features an ergonomic foldable tiller handle for ease of use, three speed controls with forward and reverse, and emergency stop and 'back-off' buttons for maximum safety.

It is supplied with a lock-tow hitch for easy hitching to trolleys and loads.

Typical applications

Suitable for towing loads weighing up to 3.5 tonnes including heavy wheeled equipment, bogie wheels, light aircraft or planes, heavy machinery, heavy specialist equipment and trolleys.
