What Is A Tow Tractor?

Tow tractors, also known as “tuggers” are specialized vehicles designed to tow products or raw materials within a warehouse or other industrial operation. A few special categories of tow tractors may also be employed in airport baggage and cargo handling applications.

Tow tractors can be powered by batteries or internal combustion, and come in a huge variety of designs and capacities. These vehicles are usually designed to tow carts behind them, and come furnished with tow hitches for this purpose.

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.


Horizontal transportation of commodities that do not require stacking is required in many warehouses. By attaching several carts behind an electric tow tractor, operators can transport goods much more efficiently than moving individual loads on pallet jacks or lift trucks.

For low level order picking or product replenishment, the same approach applies. Many more items can be loaded and moved on carts, saving operators time by avoiding multiple trips.


Tow tractors can be utilized for a variety of tasks inside a manufacturing operation, from lightweight parts picking to heavy duty hauling of items like steel bar stock.

Airport Ground Support Equipment (GSE)

The sight of baggage carts being towed from the gate to the terminal is familiar to almost everyone that travels. Tow tractors engineered for airport use are responsible for hauling these carts.
