The SmartMover electric-operated tug from MasterMover is a versatile machine designed for moving roll cages from vehicle tail lifts and across uneven surfaces and slopes, which can also turn through 90Â°. By clamping to the base of the roll cage or trolley, the unit ensures the cage cannot be tipped on to the operator.
This reduces the risk of serious injury to employees and makes unloading and moving goods a single-person procedure. Efficiency and safety are further improved by enabling the movement of multiple roll cages using towing links. Sealed batteries, variable speed and auto braking are also standard on the SmartMover.
