Tow Tractor

A Tow Tractor is a material handling vehicle used to pull a trailer to transport pallets of goods or raw materials in warehouses.  It has the ability to tow multiple trailers at the same time.  It is very similar to pallet trucks; however, it does not have front mounted forks.

We offer certification on the Tow Tractor from the following awarding body: NPORS.
