What Is A Tow Tractor?

Tow tractors, often called “tuggers” are vehicles intended to tow goods or raw materials within warehouses or manufacturing plants. Some special types of tow tractors are also used in airport baggage and cargo handling applications.

Tow tractors can be powered by batteries or internal combustion, and come in a wide range of capacities and designs. They are usually set up 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 in a variety of industries. 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. Workers can transport goods much more efficiently by attaching several 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. 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 many jobs within a manufacturing facility, from lightweight parts picking to moving heavy loads like steel bar stock.

Airport Ground Support Equipment (GSE)

The sight of baggage carts being transported from the tarmac to the terminal is familiar to almost everyone that travels. These carts are transported by tow tractors that are engineered for use in airports.
