What Is An Electric Tug?

Electric tugs allow a single operator to push, pull, and steer wheeled loads. They are often brought into the workplace to complete a task that was previously performed either by a forklift or one that was handled manually.

Distance is not a problem for electric tugs and they do not require a license to use. They are much smaller than a forklift and provide an efficient, cost-effective handling solution.

Tugs are battery powered, creating a portable piece of material handling equipment. Trolleys for electric tugs are developed to provide even more functionality. They allow the operator to raise and lower loads or, as a bespoke solution, can grip or rotate components. Trolleys enable standard handling equipment (tugs) to be versatile and suitable for more manual handling applications than they would on their own.

Why Are Trolleys For Electric Tugs Used?

There are lots of advantages to using a trolley for an electric tug. Their ability to be adapted and customised makes them economically sound and viable for many industries.

The addition of a raising and lowering platform makes trolleys ideal for assembly lines. They remove the burden of lifting and moving bulk loads across the workplace. This benefits workers, as they can complete their tasks more efficiently and without injury.

Electric tugs provide weightless manoeuvring of loads across the assembly line, providing a lifting solution for many workers at multiple points. Their compact size facilitates work environments that are restricted in space.

The Benefits Of Using A Trolley For An Electric Tug

Trolleys for electric tugs provide a complete manual handling experience. They provide a tool to remove the hardship of moving and lifting components and can benefit your workers and business in various ways:

  • Lifting something too heavy for a person to handle manually.
  • Raising an item to a location that is not easily accessible for the person.
  • Moving an item to a location that is across a long distance.
  • Reducing the risk of Musculoskeletal injuries and repetitive strain injury through incorrect manual handling.
  • Avoid employee fatigue.
  • Improving the efficiency of the production line.
  • Reducing the risk of workplace accidents and damage to products


A wide range of industries, including rail, white goods, and construction, use mobile lifting equipment to improve the efficiency of their production line and minimise the risk of injury to their workers.

Handling Concepts' Trolley For An Electric Tug Solution

This trolley for an electric tug solution moves, lifts, and positions canisters on an assembly line. Our customer already used the electric tug for other manual handling applications but wanted to turn it into an all-purpose solution for their workers.

The trolley enabled large components to be moved along the assembly line with ease and efficiency and can lift loads up to 3000kg. A scissor lift table was the foundation structure of the trolley, allowing the platform to be raised or lowered.

Handling Concepts added a fork extension pallet which could be housed within the trolley when not in use. This allowed a forklift to lift the pallet with the canister, if needed.

The trolley and electric tug reduced the risk of injuries caused by incorrect manual handling and improved the efficiency of the assembly line. Workers can now benefit from a versatile piece of lifting equipment that can be used and adapted for further applications.
