Electric Tuggers

The physics of electric tuggers is best described as a towing vehicle, let’s say an SUV, that hitches up to an independent trailer. The trailer itself isn’t motorized – it’s the electric tuggers that power and direct the trailers. As with an SUV and trailer, pulling a cart forward with a tug is simple enough, but backing up can be more challenging. Still, since the operator faces in the direction of backing when a tug is pushing a cart, this task is quickly mastered. The longer platform length of the cart plus the tugger may create additional limitations. However, the convenient aspect of tuggers, is their ability to hitch up to multiple manual carts and move them wherever needed. For less constricted warehouses and work environments with multiple manual carts and trailers to move, electric tuggers can be an excellent cost-effective solution.

Some benefits of electric tuggers include:

  • Electric Tuggers can be moved between non-motorized carts
  • Move a train of carts
  • Increases efficiency in a workspace
  • Protects employees from musculoskeletal injuries caused by unmitigated push/pull forces
  • Easy maneuverability in tight spaces
