If you are in British Columbia Canada, the provincial government has a rebate program for our V-move ride-on tow tractors of $2,000 per off-road low-speed vehicle.  See here for the rebate.

An AC motor has advantages over a DC motor as it has a flatter torque curve to move the load easier, quieter to operate, uses less energy most of the time, and smoother operation with no jerking. See this site for real-world comparison of AC vs DC motors: AC Motor Advantages.

The V-Move 1200 tow tractor or tugger is driven by a large front wheel and has two solid rear wheels with a small turning radius. The floor platform is 170 mm (6.7 inches) off the ground and comes as a standard height or low height model for the same price. Many different hitches are available from automatic coupling to standard industry nursery hitches to many others.

This V-Move tow tractor or stock chaser uses the latest Curtis CAN-bus computer controller, top-quality deep-cycle motive 'forklift' style flooded batteries, and a water and dust-resistant UL/CSA approved charger. It has a high-capacity Lithium-ion battery option. All our tugs are engineered to eliminate radio frequencies to allow you to safely use them in hospitals.

The V-Move 1200 industrial tugger can be used as an order picker, tow tractor, stock chaser, or at airports, hospitals, nurseries, manufacturing plants, warehouses, or anywhere a small footprint stand-up low maintenance and reliable tow tractor is needed. If you want a less powerful, more affordable tow tractor, then consider the V-Move 650. if you need a more powerful tow tractor, consider the V-move 3100 tow tractor.

From the Board of Directors—Essex County Condominium No. 54…….

Our 2 building condominium complex (60 units total) purchased a V- Move Tug early in 2019 and has been using it exclusively since then.

It is used every week to move garbage bins stored at an underground parking garage to (and from) an above ground pickup area where the bins are emptied by a local waste disposal service.

The bins are stored in an enclosed area where maneuvering in/out is typically challenging, then bins are towed through the underground parking garage and then up to the above ground pickup area via a 90 foot long ramp with a 1:9 gradient. (The above ground pickup location can often be snow covered during winter-so far, no problems)

To date, our V-Move Tug has performed flawlessly. The operator (our contracted maintenance person) is simply delighted with this device, primarily because the garbage handling method used previously was far more complicated and physically demanding.

Suffice to say, the Tug has not only simplified getting the job done, but it has also reduced the overall cost of doing this job. (Previously, a specially equipped truck was used by the pickup service to negotiate the garage ramp, and additional cost was a factor in our decision to use the Tug)

We would also like to say that “Michael” at Xerowaste Solutions has been very helpful throughout the process of supplying the Tug. His experience and advice was most valuable.
