What Is A Tow Tractor?

Tow tractors, often called “tuggers” are vehicles designed to tow merchandise or raw materials within a warehouse or manufacturing facility. A few special types 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 broad range of designs and capacities. They are typically designed to tow carts behind them, and come equipped with tow hitches for this purpose.

How Are Tow Tractors Used?

Tow tractors have many uses across different types of businesses. They can be a good fit for many types of operations, from light duty to heavy industrial uses.


Many warehouses require horizontal transportation of commodities that do not require stacking. Workers can transport items far 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.


Tow tractors can be used for many applications inside a manufacturing plant, from routine parts picking to heavy duty hauling of items like steel bar stock.

Airport Ground Support Equipment (GSE)

Most people are familiar with the site of baggage carts being towed from the tarmac to the terminal. These carts are transported by tow tractors that are designed for airport applications.
