Materials Handling, the company that helps you to “work with ease” has unveiled a new stand-on tug to take the hard work out of picking.

The Drover Stand-On Tug is ideal for factories, warehouses, airports, maintenance facilities, hospitals, laundries, commercial food operations, shopping and service centres.

It can pull a single or multiple "train" of trolleys, heavy or large waste bins and is ideal for step on/step off order picking duties together with an appropriate order picking trolley.

Drover is an Australian made, silent battery operated Stand on Tug, which is easy and simple to operate, with precise joystick control, variable speed, maximum traction, stability, tremendous battery capacity and is extremely safe.

The Stand on Tug's dual drive system, has been specifically engineered to offer consistent performance day in day out with 2000kg pulling power.

Compact design and engineering allows the Stand on Tug easy handling with heavy long loads in tight spaces and to travel long distances, effortlessly. It can enter small lifts confidently and turn in its own axis because of the compact design.

The unique adaptive hitching mechanism provides a secure attachment to various trolleys. The weight of the trolley over its own drive wheels, give the utmost grip and adhesion to the ground. The result is smoother, safer, and easier operation in tight spaces under heavy loads.

The automatic security brake feature, allows you to take your hand safely off the throttle control and tug and trolley will come to an immediate stop, activating the park brake.

Using the Stand-On Tug mover increases staff productivity and morale while eliminating the risk of injury through physical exertion, strain and fatigue.

Drover is supplied with flashing lights in each corner and a strip of LED across the front. It runs with complete silence, making it an ideal partner in the health care industry at hospitals and aged care hubs.

There is a warning "horn" and audible reversing signal.

The removable on/off key insures safety and prevents unauthorised use. It can be easily converted to a sit-on version with the optionally available "bolt on" seat, when the operator prefers a non-standing position.
