What is a Tractive Power Unit or “TUG”

A Tractive unit is a battery powered, material handling machine, which is designed to move wheeled or semi-wheeled loads such as large machines, or steel beams.

Why Choose a Tractive Power Unit

Whether you’re moving raw materials or transferring finished products to distribution, or simply having difficulty moving a load around a floor where a vehicle would take up too much space. A “Tug” or Tractive-Pusher is a great alternative solution.

Amongst our wide range of lifting/pulling or moving equipment hire fleet, LIFT Ltd offer this exceptional unit to go hand in hand with our spider cranes to address the issue of manual handling heavy loads. Especially when maintaining the finished product’s quality – the “Tug” will operate under complete control, allowing a steady and controlled movement of a load.
