V-Move 4XL heavy load mover
Moves 40+ MT or 88,185+ lb

Second most powerful walk-along load mover in the world

The most powerful walk-along electric tug!

The V-Move 4XL walk-along heavy-duty industrial electric heavy load mover is our premium top-of-the-line tug that is ideal for moving loads up to 88,185 lb or 40 MT and lifting loads up to 15,432 lb or 7 MT.

When using maximum counterweights, the 4XL has been known to move loads up to 80 MT or 176,000 lb and up to 450 MT or 1,000,000 lb when on rails. However, the engineers don’t recommend those extremes and will recommend lower limits to ensure you can stop safely and fast. We feel more comfortable with an upper limit of about 525,000 lb when pulling/pushing a load on rails. Get the job done fast and safely at up to 3.7 mph or 6 km/hr.

SKU: VM-4XL Category:

The 4XL heavy-duty industrial load mover is the most powerful and most capable walk-along electric tug. The V-Move 4XL has maintenance-free AC motors and is designed to move and stop the loads safely and without any effort from the user. An AC motor has advantages over a DC motor such as lower total cost of ownership, flatter torque curve, smooth acceleration and de-acceleration, and better for hazardous applications. See this site for real-world examples of AC vs DC motors: AC vs DC Motor

Due to our dual drive motor design and top quality and highly rated tires, this V-Move heavy-duty industrial tug has maximum traction. When properly equipped, you can use the standard tires in the snow with caution to move heavy loads. See our tire and wheel page for advice on winter usage. Where ever you can drive a hard-wheeled forklift, you can drive the V-move 4XL. This is the 2nd most powerful walk-along load mover after our V-move 40T.

This V-Move tug uses the latest Curtis CAN-bus computer controller, a Motive flooded 'forklift' style battery pack for up to 8 hours run time, a US-made UL/CSA approved charger and almost all other components are European-made. With the included tilting handle, the 4XL has a reduced footprint allowing you to get into tighter spots to get at loads.

Our 4XL heavy-duty industrial tugs have the option to use a larger capacity Motive AGM battery pack or high capacity Lithium-ion and we also have optional super-fast opportunity chargers.

The V-Move 4XL heavy-duty load mover can be used to push and pull any heavy loads on wheels or rails such as waste compactors, buses, trucks, cars, industrial rolls, boats, trailers, carts, train cars or small trains, etc. See our FAQ page for answers to many of your questions about the 4XL heavy-duty load mover.

Combined with Verhagen Leiden, we have over 60 business years of material handling experience.

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.
