MasterMover has launched its articulated trailer moving system, a pedestrian-operated motorized electric tug that can move loads of up to 2,425 pounds.
The TMS1650+ is designed for use by maintenance staff in many industries. It uses a hydraulic weight transfer system to allow pedestrian operators to move large loads, such as unladen articulated truck trailers and train carriages, by raising the front of the trailer off its stands. During operation, the tug’s AC motor allows for controlled handling of the load by providing high torque at low speeds, the company says. This means that operators can move objects with the same level of ease regardless of the speed the machine is moving.
