What Is A Tow Tractor?

Tow tractors, also known as “tuggers” are specialized vehicles built to tow merchandise or raw materials within a warehouse or manufacturing facility. A few specific kinds of tow tractors may also be employed in airports or other transportation hubs for towing baggage and cargo.

Tuggers are available in a wide range of designs and capacities, and can be powered by batteries or internal combustion. They are typically set up to tow carts behind them, and are 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. From light duty to heavy industrial applications, tow tractors are a good fit for many operations.


In many warehouses, there is a need for horizontal transport of goods that don’t need stacking. By daisy chaining several carts behind an electric tow tractor, operators can transport goods much more efficiently than moving individual loads on pallet trucks or lift trucks.

For low level order picking or product replenishment, the same approach applies. On a series of carts, many more items can be transported, saving pickers time by reducing their number of trips.


Tuggers can be used for a variety of tasks inside a manufacturing plant, 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 airport applications.
