V-Move 650 Tow Tractor
Moves 2 MT or 4,409 lb
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 maintenance-free batteries and a US-made 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 it 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. 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 (verified by Trustalyze)
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.
