The V-Move 650 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 as a stand-up version with a lean bar or a sit-down version with a seat. It is one of the most versatile vehicle tugs available and we can configure it for your particular use.
The 650 tow tug or personnel carrier has a 1,200 watt maintenance-free AC motor and can tow loads up to 2 MT or 4,409 lb and carry up to 500 kg or 1,102 lb. It is lighter than other competitor’s industrial electric vehicle tugs, which means you will have less wear and tear on tires and brakes leading to a lower total cost of ownership. The maintenance-free AC motor will also save you money over a DC motor and is designed to move the tug smoother and will recharge the batteries while de-accelerating.

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, better suited for hazardous or explosive applications, uses less energy most of the time, and smoother operation with no jerking.

The V-Move 650 tow tug or industrial tugger is fully customizable and is small and light enough to fit in standard elevators. This V-Move industrial electric utility vehicle tug has a built-in dead man switch, loud vehicle horn, headlamp, tail lamps, and optional fire extinguisher and flashing light on a pole to ensure a high level of safety.
Due to our advanced driveshaft and optional winter tires, you can use the V-Move electric industrial tow tug on solid surfaces in light snow. See our tire selection.
This V-Move Tow Tug / Personnel Carrier / Burden Carrier uses the latest Curtis CAN-bus computer controller, top-quality US-made deep-cycle maintenance-free batteries, and a water and dust-proof 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. Expect the standard batteries to last about +/- 4.5 hours and Lithium-ion will last all day. There is a battery tray that easily slides out so you can swap batteries if you want. 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 650 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 sit-down or stand-up tow tractor is needed. The V-move 650 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 4,409 lb. Consider using one of our custom Xerowaste Bin Butler trailers with the V-move 650. One of the 6 largest airports in the world uses about two hundred V-Move tugs including this tug! Combined with Verhagen Leiden, we have over 60 business years of material handling experience.

Xerowaste V-Move Reviews
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!
