Verhagen Leiden B.V.
Moves up to 7.5 MT or 16,535 lb
The V-Move XL+ walk-along electric tug with a 1.7 kW motor is ideal for heavy carts or trailers, 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 up to 650 kg or 1,433 lb for added traction. The V-Move XL+ has a maintenance-free AC motor (which means 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 smoother and safely and without any 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 on and off solid surfaces, off road and in snow. Optional chains allows you to use it on ice. You can add up to 650 kg or 1,433 lb of counter weights so the tug weighs over 1 MT or 2,204 lb for added traction with heavier loads. We will recommend the weight you need, as part of our overall recommendations.
This V-Move tug uses the latest Curtis CAN-bus computer controller, top quality US-made 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 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. Combined with Verhagen Leiden, we have over 60 business years of material handling experience.
