Specialist electric tow tug for HGV/articulated trailers

Available with either 20t or 40t capacity

The V-Move Trailer Mover allows you to easily move trailers using a 5th wheel coupling. It is available with either a 20t or 40t towing capacity and it has many different options and set-ups so it can fit budget and needs.

The tow tug is fully electric which means it is ideal for both indoor and outdoor usage.


Configuration options

As standard, the V-Move Trailer Mover comes with charging lead, batteries & a fixed-height fifth wheel coupling.

If budget allows, you can add numerous options to your trailer mover:

  • – Hydraulic height-adjusting fifth wheel coupling
  • – Power steering
  • – Air compressor & tank to release air brakes
  • – Connector for trailer lights
  • – Enhanced battery


Battery & charging

Our V-Move electric tow tugs can operate one to two full working days on a full charge. This depends on usage and environment. Enhanced batteries are available on request.

Our chargers are external and use a standard UK 3-pin plug socket. The charging box must be wall-mounted to help with air circulation. The charger plugs into the side of the tug without having to remove batteries.

Full charging takes 5 to 8 hours which is perfect for charging overnight. The charger has a trickle function which means you do not have to worry about overcharging.
