V-Move 25t semi-trailer mover

Moves up to 25 MT or 55,116 lb

2019 Xerowaste V-Move 25t semi-trailer mover or walk-along terminal tractor tug side view

The V-Move 25t walk-along electric semi-trailer mover or electric terminal tractor with 10 kW of power is ideal for moving semi-trailers up to 55,116 lb or 25 MT and lifting semi-trailer loads up to 11,023 lb or 5 MT. Due to the large specially engineered footprint, it is very stable and safe and doesn’t require a license to operate while on your property.

Our semi-trailer mover tug uses twin efficient 48-volt motors and we pare it with an energy-efficient charger. This V-move tug can move at a speed up to 3.1 mph so you can get the job done fast and safely. Built into the highly-engineered semi-trailer tug are an anti-tip mechanism to slow you down when turning, a loud vehicle horn to warn others, and optional rear-mount cameras so you can see all around.

Our 40t trailer mover electric walk-along mover model is for moving heavier semi-trailers and is a lower carbon footprint than full-sized terminal tractors or shunt trucks.

The V-Move 25t semi-trailer mover (also called yard truck, prime mover or terminal tractor) has twin maintenance-free AC motors (one per drive wheel), which results in a lower total cost of ownership for an AC motor than a DC motor, 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 as it has a flatter torque curve to move the load easier, better suited for hazardous or explosive applications, 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

Due to twin drive motors and top quality deep aggressive tread tires, this V-Move walk-along trailer mover has great traction. When properly equipped, you can use the standard solid tires in the snow with caution.  See our tire and wheel page for advice on winter usage.

When you buy an electric car, it comes with individual direct-drive AC motors at 2 or 4 wheels. Each direct-drive motor assists in stopping, electromagnetically, and each drive wheel is also braked with hydraulic-assisted brakes. The V-Move Trailermovers have direct-drive dual AC motors that have both electromagnetic and hydraulic-assisted braking.

The V-Move semi terminal tractors walk-along tugs use the latest Curtis CAN-bus computer controller, top quality maintenance-free batteries and a US-made UL/CSA approved charger. With the included tilting handle, the V-Move terminal tractor tug has a reduced footprint allowing you to get into tight spots to get at loads.

If you have a fleet of our V-move Trailermover tuggers, you can opt for the remote cloud-based monitoring of the tugs giving you asset location tracking and tug statistics monitoring.

Our semi-trailer mover tugs have the option to use higher capacity AGM batteries or Motive “Forklift” style EastPenn Deka battery packs for long-running times and years of charge cycling.  Very high capacity Lithium-ion is also available for very long run times, almost continuous operation, and super-fast charging with an efficient opportunity charger.

The V-Move 25t semi-trailer mover is best suited for lighter loads and manufacturers or renters of trailers that need to move them around their facility. Verhagen launched the semi-trailer mover for sale in early 2015. Production was sold out each year well in advance, due to its popularity around the world. Combined with Verhagen Leiden, we have over 60 business years of material handling experience.
