pedestrian operated powered tugs from Sitecraft provide an ideal solution to manual handling and
health and safety issues within a workplace.
Battery powered and designed to push,
pull and manoeuvre loads of up to 12.5 tonnes on castors, electric tugs ensure
you have safe and efficient handling for your operators. The pedestrian operated electric
powered tugs offer safety features such as
an Anti trap emergency reverse, E-Stop battery isolator and Electro-magnetic
brake – Fail to safe. All of the
Logistec range can be operated by a single user in a safe and efficient way
eliminating the need for extra manpower.
A company manufacturing prefabricated plant rooms, used a
railed lattice system to move the rooms around the manufacturing shop floor.
Each plant room could weigh up to 6,000kg which would require 6 employees to
move the load. Every time a plant room
had to be moved, employees would have to stop the work they were doing to
assist. Some employees would complain of bad backs or shoulders due to the
physical excursion. A single Pedestrian Operated Powered Tug unit was
introduced to address the issue. One man could now safely move the load with no
physical effort. The company managed to reduce injuries and increase production
with the implementation of the Pedestrian Operated Electric Powered Tug.
