V-Move XL+ electric tug or dumpster mover
Moves 13,228 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 13,228 lb or 6 MT and, with an optional lift, it can carry loads up to 1,323 lb or 0.6 MT.
Weight plates can be added to the XL+ up to 500 kg or 1,102 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. It is designed to move and stop the loads quietly and smoother 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. With the added counterweights, the tug can weigh up to 775 kg or 1,708 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 deep-cycle maintenance-free batteries, and a water and dust-proof UL/CSA-approved charger. The AC motor in the XL+ doesn't generate any sparks as most DC motors do, so it is less likely to ignite flammable gasses than the DC motor tugs. 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, boats, trailers, carts, etc. The slightly smaller XL tug has been manufactured for over 38 years. Combined with Verhagen Leiden, we have over 45 business years of material handling experience.
Every Xerowaste V-Move tug comes with a one-year warranty.

Michael was great to work with and went out of his way to accommodate what we needed.
The tug has performed excellent and has made moving the trash/recycling bins a breeze and we are saving a bit on labor.
