Manual Handling Solutions for the Construction of High-rise Buildings

As the world’s population grows, the demand for high-rise buildings is also increasing. However, the construction of these structures requires significant manpower, materials, and equipment to move heavy loads from one point to another. At Tractive Power, we have a range of tugs and power pushers which are ideal for use on a construction site.

We are a leading designer and manufacturer of electric tugs. Which have been revolutionising the construction industry for years now. We understand that the construction of high-rise buildings is a complex, long and sometimes challenging task.

Our tugs simplify the process of moving items. Which would otherwise require large amounts of manpower, and in the process could even cause injury to your workforce. Our electric tugs can help to simplify this process and increase efficiency. With our products, construction companies can move heavy loads. Including steel beams, concrete blocks, and other building materials with ease, saving time and reducing the risk of workplace accidents.


Benefits of using tugs when constructing high-rise buildings


The ease of use is the main benefit of utilising tugs in the construction business. Our equipment is designed to be intuitive, so your employees can start using it right away. Our tugs and pushers are also highly manoeuvrable, which means they can navigate tight spaces, doorways and corners with ease. This can be especially beneficial in crowded construction sites where space is at a premium.

The reliability of our battery-powered tugs is a requirement for industries with tight deadlines, such as the construction sector. Our equipment is built to last and is designed to withstand the rigours of daily use. We use high-quality materials and components to ensure that our equipment is reliable and durable. This means that you can expect years of trouble-free operation from your investment.

Manoeuvrability is a huge advantage of our electric tugs. They are able to move with ease in tight spaces, making them ideal for construction sites where space is often limited. Our tugs are compact, agile, and easy to operate. Making them suitable for moving heavy loads in and out of elevators, through narrow corridors, and around obstacles.

Using electric tugs on your site also reduces the reliance on manual labour and reliance on your workforce. Which can be time-consuming and physically demanding. By using our tugs, construction companies can move heavy loads with minimal effort. Allowing workers to focus on other critical tasks.


Health and Safety


At Tractive Power, we understand the importance of safety on construction sites. That’s why our tugs and pushers are designed with safety in mind. Our tugs are equipped with safety features to ensure safety whilst they are in use. We also provide comprehensive training to ensure that your employees know how to operate our equipment safely and effectively.




In addition to improving safety, efficiency and the risk of accidents on construction sites, our electric tugs help to reduce carbon emissions. Traditional methods of moving heavy loads can include the use of cranes or forklifts. When powered by diesel engines, these will emit harmful greenhouse gasses into the atmosphere.

Whereas, our electric tugs are powered by rechargeable batteries. They produce zero emissions, which makes them an eco-friendly alternative.


Customisation of Tugs


Our electric tugs are also highly customisable. Which means that they can be tailored to meet the specific needs of construction companies. If you’d like to know more about our bespoke tugs, please get in touch with our team of experts.


Training and servicing


Our team is committed to not only providing high-quality tugs but also the training to go alongside this. Meaning that your workforce is able to use our tugs efficiently, effectively and safely. We use the latest technology and manufacturing processes. This ensures that our electric tugs are durable, reliable, and efficient. We also offer after-sales support, including maintenance and repair services, to ensure that our customers get the most out of their investments.
