V-Move XL+ electric tug / dumpster mover
Moves 7.5 MT or 16,535 lb
The V-Move XL+ walk-along electric load mover or industrial tug with a 1.7 kW motor is ideal for heavy carts or trailers, bins, and compactors, up/down slopes, and is ideal for pushing and pulling loads up to 16,535 lb or 7.5 MT and, with an optional lift, it can carry loads up to 1,102 lb or 0.5 MT.
Weight plates can be added to the XL+ up to 650 kg or 1,433 lb for added traction. The V-Move XL+ has a maintenance-free AC motor (which means the lower total cost of ownership vs DC motor tugs), is better suited for hazardous or explosive applications, and is designed to move and stop the loads quietly, smoother and safely and without any added effort from the user. This website does a great job explaining how AC motors have advantages over DC motors, even though it is for electric carts: AC Motor Advantages
If your load is on rails and the tug is on a solid surface, such as concrete, steel, pavement, or blocks, then you can use the XL+ to push or pull and safely stop a load up to 10 MT or 22,046 lb. With less resistance when it is on rails, all our tugs can pull more on rails.
Due to our optional tires and advanced driveshaft, you can use the V-Move electric load mover or industrial tug on and off solid surfaces, off-road and in snow. Optional chains allow you to use it on ice. You can add up to 650 kg or 1,433 lb of counterweights so the tug weighs over 1 MT or 2,204 lb for added traction with heavier loads. We will recommend the weight and options you need, as part of our overall recommendations.

This V-Move battery-powered electric load mover or industrial tug uses the latest Curtis CAN-bus computer controller, top quality maintenance-free batteries and a US-made UL/CSA approved charger. All our tugs are engineered to eliminate radio frequencies to allow you to safely use it in hospitals. With the optional tilting handle, V-Move has one of the smallest footprints of any walk-along tug in its class, at 47", allowing you to get into tight spots to get at loads.
The V-Move XL+ tugger can be used to push and pull any loads on wheels or rails such as waste bins, compactors, concession trailers, buses, trucks, cars, industrial rolls, helicopters, small planes, boats, trailers, carts, etc. The slightly smaller XL tug has been manufactured for over 35 years. Combined with Verhagen Leiden, we have over 60 business years of material handling experience.
Every Xerowaste V-Move tug comes with a 2-year warranty.

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.
