Electrodrive Tug Rise Electrodrive Tug Rise Electrodrive Tug Rise Electrodrive Tug Rise

The Australian made Electrodrive Tug Rise is a pedestrian operated, battery powered, tug designed to tow trolleys on slopes and ramps. It is capable of towing up to 1 tonne on a 15° ramp with ease, or a max of 5 tonnes on a flat surface.

It is an ideal solution for moving 660 and 1100 litre Wheelie Bins on ramps up to 14°. However, for this task a 29mm Ø Pin Hitch (OHFG-EDHT1810-052) will be required. For 660 and 1100 litre Wheelie Bins without any hitch points, a Front Hitching Bracket (OHFG-EDUNIBH6611F) and Rear Hitching Bracket (OHFG-EDUNIBH6611R) are available. If only fitted with swivel castors, the Wheelie Bin’s rear castors can be retrofitted with Directional Lock Tabs (LMDLSULO).

The Tug Rise is designed to improve safety and efficiency, whilst reducing the risk of accidents that can occur when manually moving very heavy loads, especially on ramps.

Tow Capacity: Max 1000kg on incline up to 15° (or up to 5,000 kg on a flat surface)
