What Is A Tow Tractor?

Tow tractors, often called “tuggers” are vehicles intended to tow products or raw materials within warehouses or manufacturing plants. A few special kinds of tow tractors may also be employed in baggage handling operations within airports.

Tow tractors can be powered by batteries or internal combustion, and come in a wide range of capacities and designs. They 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 many uses across different types of businesses. From light duty to heavy industrial applications, tow tractors are a good fit for many operations.


Many warehouses require horizontal transportation of commodities that do not require stacking. Operators can transport goods much more efficiently by attaching many carts to an electric tow tractor as opposed to moving individual loads on pallet trucks or forklifts.

The same concept applies for low level order picking or goods replenishment. Many more items can be loaded and moved on carts, saving pickers time by avoiding multiple trips.


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

Airport Ground Support Equipment (GSE)

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