V-move XXL load mover
Moves 44,093 lb
The V-Move XXL walk-along industrial electric tug with a 4 kW motor is ideal for pushing and pulling heavy loads up to 44,093 lb or 20 MT and, with an optional lift, it can carry loads up to 5,512 lb or 2.5 MT. It is one of our most popular tugs for manufacturing and industrial use as well as for lifting and moving RO containers and self-contained compactors.
When using maximum counterweights, the XXL industrial tug or load mover has been known to push/pull up to 290 MT or 639,341 lb when on rails. However, the engineers recommend much lower limits when on rails to ensure you can stop fast and we guess that limit that we are comfortable with is around 125,000 lb on rails.
The V-Move XXL has a maintenance-free AC motor, which results in a lower total cost of ownership for an AC motor than a DC motor, and is designed to move and stop the loads safely and without any effort from the user. An AC motor has advantages over a DC motor as it has a flatter torque curve to move the load easier, uses less energy most of the time, and smoother operation with no jerking. See this site for real-world comparison of AC vs DC motors: AC Motor Advantages
Due to our advanced driveshaft, this V-Move is even more capable. When properly equipped, you can use the standard solid tires in the snow with caution on flat surfaces. We also offer heavy-duty all-season air tires for slopes, snow traction, or wet surfaces (weight limited for air tires). Our V-move XXL dumpster bin mover package is designed for steeper slopes and larger compacted bins and has the necessary traction to safely stop and move loads in most conditions. We also offer our optional snow plow option with the V-move XXL dumpster bin mover package.
This V-Move® manufacturing and heavy-duty use tug uses the latest Curtis CAN-bus computer controller, top-quality maintenance-free deep cycle batteries and a US-made UL/CSA approved charger. With the included tilting handle, the XXL has a reduced footprint allowing you to get into tight spots to get at loads. To answer some of your questions, see our FAQ page.
Our XXL tug has the option to use higher capacity AGM batteries or Motive "Forklift" style EastPenn Deka battery packs for long-running times and years of charge cycling. Very high capacity Lithium-ion is also available that can keep you running 24/7.
The V-Move XXL industrial tug or load mover can be used to push and pull any loads on wheels or rails such as waste bins, self-contained compactors, buses, trucks, cars, industrial rolls, boats, trailers, carts, railcars or small trains, etc. Another V-move tug to consider in moving heavy trailers or bins on concrete or paving is the V-move LT36. Combined with Verhagen Leiden, we have over 45 business years of material handling experience.

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!
