Shop Floor Tug
Application description: Ideal for material handling in a manufacturing environment. A Load Mover can be used to move completed parts between work cells or for pulling components from inventory to the production floor. This can be done by pulling a single cart or a train of loaded carts.
A Load Mover Recommendation: A variety of Load Mover sizes are available for many different uses. “People Power” is the easiest and fastest way to measure the horizontal force needed to move a cart. How many people, with good upper body strength, does it take to move your cart a short distance? Our Load Movers range from two people (XpressPlus) to ten people (Xtreme).
The battery powered shop floor tug has a variety of attachments and features that make it an ideal choice for moving parts and equipment. JIT or Lean Manufacturing operations often require more frequent material movements in a limited amount of space.
