Electro Kinetic Technologies has introduced the AC Tugger 25K+, a high capacity electric tugger. It features a 25,000 lb. payload capacity on casters and up to 100,000 lbs. on rails.
The solid-state sensor prevents tugger operation when its mast is in the vertical position, and other built-in sensors allow the control to throttle back the tugger’s motor, protecting from thermal overload. This tugger also completely stops when the controls are released, and automatically brakes to prevent rolling backward if the operator is on an incline.
Safety is built into the machine itself, but is also present in the battery pack. The AC Tugger 25K+ is available with options for either an AGM or lithium battery package, and lithium batteries come with even more incentives. Another key feature is its Bluetooth compatibility and smart phone monitoring app.
