In stock

The V-Move 3100 heavy duty industrial electric tow tug or tugger can be used as a personnel carrier, stock chaser, burden carrier, tow tractor, or maintenance cart. It can be configured with more aggressive tread drive tires for outdoor use. It is a reliable and high-quality industrial tow tractor and we can customize it for your particular use.

The 3100 tow tug or personnel carrier has a 9 Kw maintenance-free AC motor and can tow loads up to 10 MT or 22,046 lb and carry up to 500 kg or 1,102 lb. The maintenance-free AC motor will also save you money over a DC motor and is designed to move the tug smoother and to save energy, it will recharge the batteries while de-accelerating.

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, is 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 3100 tow tug or industrial tugger is fully customizable and is can be optioned with a weather-resistant cabin. This V-Move industrial electric utility vehicle tug has a built-in dead man switch, loud vehicle horn, LED headlamp, LED tail lamps, an optional fire extinguisher, optional electronic key lock, and optional flashing light on a pole to ensure a high level of safety.

The V-move 3100 tow tractor comes with full suspension all around for comfort and a luxurious chair for additional driver comfort. It has auto hill braking to hold it on a hill when you let off the brake pedal until you press the accelerator. It is hydraulically braked on all wheels and has an additional electronic parking brake.  It has direction indicators, a color dashboard display, and inching buttons for connecting trailers. See our tire selection.

This V-Move Tow Tug / Personnel Carrier / Burden Carrier uses the latest Curtis CAN-bus computer controller, top-quality quick-change long-running battery, and a UL/CSA-approved charger. Lithium-ion is available as an option, as is in all of our tugs, so you can charge up at breaks and lunch or whenever it is not used. All our tugs are engineered to eliminate radio frequencies to allow you to safely use them in hospitals. Many different hitches are available including auto coupling hitches, standard cart hitches, and others.

The V-Move 3100 can be used as an order picker, a stock chaser, burden carrier, personnel carrier, at airports, hospitals, nurseries, manufacturing plants, warehouses, or anywhere a small footprint tow tractor is needed. The V-move 3100 is also a great option for waste and recycling bin hauling at large multi-unit residential buildings where you don't have a steep grade and the bins are under 8,818 lb on a 9% grade (example weight/grade). Consider using one of our custom steel Xerowaste Bin Butler trailers with the V-move 3100.

We are a large property management company with a need to transport heavy waste bins up through our parkade each week. After years of using an aging tractor, we recently purchased a V-Move tug to:

• Prevent driving an unlicensed ‘vehicle’ (old tractor) in the back lane, which is a huge liability, especially if we were involved in any type of accident with another vehicle or pedestrian.

• Reduce pollution, especially for the driver and other occupants of the parkade.

• Eliminate purchasing, transporting and storing gasoline on site inside our parkade.

• Eliminate dangerous conditions our staff previously faced while operating the tractor.

• Reduce operating costs (fuel and servicing) and downtime.

The service from Xerowaste Solutions has been excellent, with quick response time and clear communications. So far, the V-Move tug has delivered exactly as promised, reducing operating costs while improving safety. We even bought the snow plow attachment and look forward to putting it to use!
