Maximum power with a traction battery

There is a reason, after all, why the name ‘electric tow tractor’ starts with the word 'electric'. The tractor is fully electric powered. Besides the fact that it is more environmentally friendly than a petrol vehicle, the electric tow tractor also offers another major advantage; the fact that it runs on a fully charged traction battery. An electric vehicle can use its maximum power immediately, but a petrol vehicle can only use its maximum power once it has achieved a certain number of revolutions. The electric tow tractor uses its power efficiently, which means that the maximum result can be achieved immediately.

Used tow tractors

Steenks Service does not just sell tow tractors, but also allows one to exchange them or purchases them from you. We have a large number of used tow tractors which are offered at attractive prices.

All used tow tractors are also sold with a warranty, and naturally include the high-frequency battery charger.

Without having to dish out for a large investment all at once, they are still able to use the electric tractors of Steenks Service, for an extended period.

AGV tractors

Steenks Service also supplies AGV tractors. The AGV tractor stands for Automatic Guided Vehicle. In other words, an electric tow tractor which can operate a pre-installed route, without the need to be manned. Operation is fully automated, which means that internal transport can be carried out without a driver. The AGV tractor can be connected to your loading and unloading system, for example.

By means of induction technology and embedded cables, the AGV tractors know exactly which route to follow. They are also equipped with a laser scanner, which recognises obstacles on the route. This means that you can deploy your personnel more efficiently, but moreover, that safety is guaranteed.
