What are tow tractors?
A tow tractor is a specialised, compact vehicle used for towing and manoeuvring heavy loads in industrial settings. Also known as a tugger or tow truck, it is designed to transport various types of trailers, carts, or dollies within warehouses, distribution centres, and manufacturing facilities.
Tow tractors provide an efficient and flexible solution for material handling tasks, allowing operators to move multiple loads simultaneously and reducing the need for multiple forklifts. With their sturdy build and towing capacity, tow tractors streamline operations, increase productivity, and contribute to a safe and organised working environment for efficient logistics and material handling.

How often should I take tow tug refresher training?
It is advisable to undergo refresher training for manual handling equipment approximately every 3-5 years. However, it’s essential to consider your specific circumstances for a more accurate time frame. If you haven’t used tow tugs regularly or have been away from operating them for an extended period, it is recommended to undergo refresher training before resuming operations. Additionally, if there have been changes to the work environment or if you identify unsafe work practices, relevant employees should undertake necessary training to address any knowledge and skill gaps.
