At MotorMover, we are committed to both designing and manufacturing bespoke solutions as well as delivering a great range of machines for moving heavy industrial items effortlessly. We know that most industries face material handling problems, the reason why our ergonomic electric tow tugs range is a highly effective and efficient solution for any material handling needs.
We are proud to announce that we have a new addition to our existing MotorMover Electric Tugs Range, another exceptional result thanks to our expert in-house technology and ergonomic design team. In this article, we would like to introduce you to The TOW MAJOR MOTORMOVER, which can move up to 80.000kg and discuss its features in more detail.
What is the Tow Major MotorMover?
The TOW MAJOR MOTORMOVER is our latest material handling solution, designed with complete convenience, efficiency and power in mind. It is also the first and largest machine in the new Tow MotorMover range.
To complement our already existing electric tow tugs range, The Tow Major is a pre-weighted tug that matches the load capacity of our Major MotorMover Tug, moving loads of up to 80,000 kg on rails or 20,000Kg on wheels but without the use of weight transfer which allows for a range of drawbar style couplings. Our specialist design and manufacturing team can create bespoke solutions to provide specifically engineered couplings and hitches to allow the use of existing trailers, trolleys, cages and jigs that connect with the Tow Major MotorMover.
The TOW MAJOR comes as standard with the following outstanding features:
- Intuitive user interface
- 4Kw tractive power
- 48V high performance, maintenance-free batteries
- Variable speed controllers: forward and reverse
- Safety Anti-pinch shut off
- Electromagnetic parking brakes
- Puncture proof, non-marking wheels
- Self-diagnostic electrical test system
- All components CE marked and certificated
- Front and rear-mounted E-Stops
- 12 months manufacturer’s warranty
Optional items that can be included:
- Bespoke couplings
- Trolleys, jigs and cages
- Pole Mounted Beacon
- Inch Back Buttons to facilitate easier coupling
- Motion Beeper
To top it up, The Tow Major MotorMover comes with maintenance-free gel traction batteries to deliver powerful moving that requires minimal maintenance from the operator and a 13amp high-frequency charger for recharging convenience. This is an excellent result of the combination of our total in-house engineering capabilities, years of experience, and our ongoing commitment to continuous improvement throughout our products and services.
We are excited to offer all our customers the same unrivalled value and service with our most advanced, powerful and strong electric tow tug in the market. Our journey started with a desire to meet our customers’ increasing material handling needs throughout the world, and our daily motivation hasn’t changed today.
