KEY TUGGER MACHINE FEATURES

  • Move loads safely up to 25,000 lbs. on casters, 100,000 lbs. on rails
  • Available with AGM and Lithium battery packs
  • Built-in motor sensors allow the control to throttle back the motor, protecting it from thermal overload
  • Solid state sensor prevents tugger operation when mast is in vertical position
  • Tugger crawl control in front to assist in coupling when needed
  • Two speed selector switch standard on all models
  • Customized hitches and couplers available

WHY LITHIUM IRON PHOSPHATE? (LiFePO4)

  • Safe – UN38.3 certification allows for global safe transport with no special packaging, in contrast to other lithium battery chemistries that are prone to spontaneous combustion
  • Long-Lasting – Can be 14X the life of AGM and GEL battery technologies, thanks to our battery management system that signals operators to recharge at an 80% discharge point
  • Powerful – 100% of rated capacity regardless of rate of discharge
  • Fast-Charging – 6X faster than lead acid batteries
  • Green – Low environmental impact at disposal
Cycle Life vs. Depth of Discharge

AC Vector Technology

With our AC Vector Power© technology these electric powered carts deliver maximum power and torque across the entire speed range unlike traditional DC technology. This gives you the Power You Need at Any Speed© to move any load, anywhere, under any conditions with precise speed control down to 0.1 mph.

Swappable Battery AC Motorized Cart

Battery Pack

Cradled AGM or lithium battery packages are available for easy removal during maintenance or hot-swappable when the motorized carts are used in 24/7 operations.

AC Tugger 25k+ - Phone Battery Charge Monitor App

Time-Saving Technology

The advanced battery monitoring system installed on all machine tuggers is designed to provide both visual and audible warnings when the battery pack is running low and needs to be changed or recharged. This system helps to ensure the electric tuggers are always operating at peak performance and minimizes the risk of unexpected downtime due to a dead battery.

Bluetooth® capability allows you to connect your smart phone wirelessly to your entire fleet. With a downloadable app, you can easily monitor and manage your fleet from the convenience of your smart phone. This app gives you the ability to access real-time data, check vehicle performance, history data, trending and more. With this capability, you can stay up to date with the health of your fleet and make sure that everything is running smoothly.

AC Tugger ReGen Technology

AC ReGen© Technology

AC ReGen© Technology used during braking enables the electric powered cart’s kinetic energy to be converted back to electrical energy that replenishes the on board batteries thereby increasing the time between recharging.

Coupling Assist

The jog control switch located at the front of the electric tugger provides the operator with a simple and easy coupling assist. When needed, this momentary switch allows for closer viewing of the coupling operation while providing a slow forward or reverse movement of the tugger machine.
