Heavy Duty Trailer Mover

Originally developed for a specific project in Sweden to enable pedestrians to launch and recover pleasure boats from a slipway, the Heavy Duty Trailer Mover has also now found customers in the manufacturing, military & ground handling sectors.

It may be fitted with a variety of tow and towing hitches / universal couplings and drop pin style hitches such as a 50mm Ball Hitch, NATO style tow hitch, pintle hitch or tractor hitch. When fitted with one of these design attachments, it becomes a general purpose pedestrian electric tug or tractor unit for towing industrial trailers and removes the need for ride-on tugs and tractor units that are generally much bigger and which also require driving licences to operate.

There are no exhaust fumes, handlebar vibration or, engine noise to consider when in operation and the key components in the machines are waterproof, enabling both indoor and outdoor operation.
