The electric ride-on pallet truck and electric tow tugs for sale here with Sitecraft are two highly capable and powerful materials handling solutions. Each has the capacity to produce fast and efficient workflows when operated by a savvy crew.
A materials handling solution such as a ride on tug tow is not to be underestimated. There is a range of advantages to be drawn from a manoeuvrable tow tug (or small fleet!).
Advantages like a tight turning radius offer significant opportunities to generate high pace operating patterns in areas that are just too tight for larger pallet trucks and forklifts. In settings where level changes can be handled separately, a ride-on tow tug can make light work of large shipments. Manoeuvring through gaps that you simply won’t be able to on larger machinery.
The pace is another key strength of ride on tow tugs. Once materials have been loaded on board, drivers are still able to travel at speeds of 5.8kph, making the truck useful in larger warehouses where time is always a factor. Once the materials have been unloaded, turnarounds can be made quickly as the speed increases to 6.2kph.
The small size means it’s easy to step aside when many vehicles are operating. In addition, drivers don’t have to worry about back strain or other physical injuries as a result of lifting loads that are too heavy.
