Electrodrive Tug Axis Electrodrive Tug Axis Electrodrive Tug Axis Electrodrive Tug Axis

Locally manufactured and available in two models, the Electrodrive Tug Axis is a versatile and powerful motorised, pedestrian operated, tug.

Ideal for transporting medical carts around hospitals, moving heavy specialist equipment and an array of weighty and bulky trolleys and Wheelie Bins (80 to 240 litre only).

Using the tiller handle to control the tug, the operator walks in front of the load, increasing visibility and reducing the risk of collisions.

Powered towing can eliminate push/pull injuries caused by manually moving heavy trolleys or repetitive movements.

Tow Capacity:
Tug Axis 1T: 1000 kg
Tug Axis 2T: 2000 kg
(On flat ground – less on ramps. Can tow on ramps with max incline up to 8°)
