TOW TUGS

Pack King sells direct to end users, so you get the best possible price deal.

Tow Tugs remove the possibility of an operator being injured from straining muscles when pushing or pulling objects. Tugs also remove the possibility of the wheeled object taking off if the operator stumbles and loses control, as the electro brake will automatically apply, once the speed control is left unattended.

Many companies fit wheels to trolleys or racks, that only just do the job, so pushing or pulling a trolley, especially with a full load, still presents a potential problem, as the operator has to overcome the inertia created by the wheels firstly swivelling to become directional, then the rolling resistance – worsened of course if the tyre is soft rubber.

Tow tugs take away any stress and strain on the operator.

An insurance claim is far more expensive than providing power-assisted help in the first place – and staff appreciate companies who are pro rather than reactive.

For a small outlay, you are removing a potential hazard. It is not one where you have to consider the possibility that an accident could occur, it totally rules out that potential, so you have peace of mind.

Pack King holds some popular spare parts, whilst others can be obtained within three days.

Controls are simple and intuitive. Safety features abound. Simply hitch up your rolling stock using our standard tow bar and/or hitch systems, or we can customise drawbars and hitches to suit your needs.

Pack King can also organise your rolling stock to be fitted with new fixed or swivel castors, should yours be old or simply not working at maximum capacity.

Pack King Tow Tugs. ETM-100 (yellow) and ETP-200 (grey).

The ABLE Container can be raised from either of the two long sides by forklift, hand pallet truck or High Lift Pallet Truck when no wheels are fitted. Forklift and narrow lifters up to 540mm wide when wheels are fitted.

A spring-assisted scissor lift table can be fitted into the ABLE Container, to raise the contents up to operator height, then descend underweight, therefore utilizing the whole container whilst preventing bending down to remove the contents. Great for bed linen, parts, stock picking, etc. Sides can be lined with ribbed plastic panels if required

Your company identifiers, logos, unit numbering, addresses, contact numbers, etc.can be applied

Tow Tugs of varying capacities are available to make up a stock-picking unit or train.

The wire mesh stillage is so versatile, that we start with the basics, that of the flatbed, fitted with wheels. In this configuration, the trolley and the stock-picking pallet can be moved around your warehouse, using either your forklift or a Tow Tug.

When the task is completed, the order is removed with a forklift or walkie-stacker, then stretch-wrapped and labelled, ready for dispatch.

Several ABLE bases can be hitched inline using the optional drawbar and tow hitch. Each base has 1,300 Kgs capacity. When unhitched, each loaded base can be easily pushed. ABLE bases and mesh sided containers can be mixed in the ‘train’.
