It is the premium, most powerful, and most capable walk-along electric semi trailer mover tug. Due to the large specially engineered footprint, it is very stable and safe and doesn't require a license to operate. It has been redesigned and improved in 2020 with a large selection of options and new safety features. The smaller and new 25t trailer mover is also available.

The V-Move 40t semi trailer mover (also known as a terminal tractor, yard truck, or prime mover) has dual maintenance-free 48-volt AC motors. There is a lower total cost of ownership for an AC motor than a DC motor. An AC motor has advantages over a DC motor as it has a flatter torque curve to move the load easier, it's better suited for hazardous or explosive applications, uses less energy most of the time, and has smoother movement with no jerking. See this site for real-world comparison of AC vs DC motors: AC Motor Advantages

Due to our dual drive motors and top quality and highly rated deep and aggressive tread tires, this V-Move walk-along battery-powered terminal tractor has maximum 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 brakes. The V-Move Trailermovers have direct-drive dual AC motors that have both electromagnetic and hydraulic-assisted braking.


This V-Move terminal tractor walk-along tug uses the latest Curtis CAN-bus computer controller, a large motive 'forklift' style flooded battery pack, a US-made UL/CSA approved charger and almost all other components are European-made. If you have a fleet of our V-move Trailermover tuggers, you can option for the remote cloud-based monitoring of the tugs giving you asset location tracking and tug statistics monitoring. With the included standard tilting handle, the semi-trailer mover has a reduced footprint allowing you to get into tight spots to get at loads.

Our semi trailer mover tugs have the option to use a large capacity AGM battery pack or a high capacity 420 Ah Lithium-ion is also available for as well as an option for a super-fast and efficient industrial opportunity charger.

The V-Move 40t semi trailer tugger is best suited for heavier semi trailer loads and is a much lower carbon footprint solution around the yard than full-sized terminal tractors, semi tractors, or shunt trucks - even electric ones. Verhagen launched the semi trailer mover 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 and are ready to help you.

We have had great success with the purchase of a couple Tug units. They are a great way as another option for pull out service. Michael has been a pleasure to work with and provides outstanding customer service.
