Reliable Performance

The Series 1191 is exceptionally energy efficient with the Linde digital controller (LAC) and a powerful 4.5kW sealed AC drive motor that promotes impressive pulling power. With remarkable pulling capacity of 13,000lbs., and a 270 lb. drawbar pull, the Series 1191 (P60) is always at the ready to tow a multitude of goods and is ideal for internal and external applications.  The heavy-duty steel chassis and impact resistant upper structures allow for maximum structural integrity, delivering a truly stable and rugged vehicle.


Tow tractors can transport and deliver multiple loads with the addition of a variety of trailers.  These trailers ensure the ability to transfer many loads to various locations across short and long distances, including in-house transports and supplying assembly lines.  Sorting orders is fast and efficient and last-minute loose items can be added to the trailer seamlessly.  In addition, loading products can be accomplished from either side of the trailer attachments, allowing quick loading stops. 

If the goal of your operation is to have limited stock on the floor, The Series 1191 Electric Tow Tractor can be supplied and ready to replenish depleted materials at a moment’s notice.  Transporting goods with the Series 1191 is a stress-free process and allows the need for fewer operators on the floor while moving the same amount of product.  Fewer operators equals less congestion on the warehouse floor and a lower risk for accidents.
