What Is A Tow Tractor?
Tow tractors, often called “tuggers” are vehicles intended to tow products or raw materials within warehouses or manufacturing plants. Some special types of tow tractors may also be employed in airport baggage and cargo handling applications.
Tuggers are available in a variety of designs and capacities, and can be powered by batteries or internal combustion. These vehicles are typically designed to tow carts behind them, and come furnished with various types of tow hitches.
How Are Tow Tractors Used?
Tow tractors have a wide range of applications across different types of businesses. They can be a good fit for many types of operations, from light duty to heavy industrial uses.
In many warehouses, there is a need for horizontal transport of goods that don’t need stacking. Operators can transport items much more efficiently by attaching many carts to an electric tow tractor as opposed to moving individual loads on pallet trucks or forklifts.
For low level order picking or product replenishment, the same approach applies. On a series of carts, many more items can be transported, saving operators time by reducing their number of trips.
Tuggers can be used for a variety of tasks inside a manufacturing plant, from general parts picking to moving heavy loads like steel bar stock.
Airport Ground Support Equipment (GSE)
Most people are familiar with the site of baggage carts being towed from the gate to the terminal. These carts are transported by tow tractors that are engineered for airport applications.
