BTM

Battery TUGGER MANUAL

The Battery Tugger Manual (BTM) is a battery transporter with mechanical loader, ideal for the maintenance shop or for facilities with a small battery fleet. The BTM series has been specifically designed to remove batteries out of lift trucks for servicing batteries, performing preventative maintenance and to change out batteries when necessary. The manual operated hand pump jack allows you to raise the roller bed to meet the height of most stand up lift trucks. Its single pin steering mechanism make this truck operate like most hand pallet trucks. The BTM uses special steel roller bearings in the oversized front load wheels to reduce static load resistance. This unit allows virtually anyone to push a 3,000lbs battery with little effort.

The gear reduction mechanical drive aids in pushing and pulling the batteries in and out of the lift truck while the operator manually cranks the handle similar to a boat winch.

The battery carriage is available in two convenient sizes of 24” or 36”.

 

  • Minimum Battery Size: 6.5” W x 25” Long
  • Maximum Battery Size: 22.25 W x 40” Long
  • Max Battery Weight: 3,200 lbs
  • Battery Connection Type: Chain Hook
  • Overall length: 56”
  • Overall Height: 56”
  • Carriage lowered height: 4.25”
  • Carriage Max Raised Height: 22.25”
  • Overall Width of 24” battery carriage size: 38.5”
  • Overall Width of 36” battery carriage size: 50.5”
  • Shipping Weight of 24” battery carriage size: 692 lbs
  • Shipping Weight of 36” battery carriage size: 762 lbs

BTSE

Battery Tugger Stepped

An evolution from our trusted BTE series, the BTSE adds flexibility without compromising performance, safety or durability that have made our tuggers the number one battery changing choice for over 35 years.

With a comprehensive array of fitments and options, all BTSE models offer flexible step configurations to suit multiple battery sizes and rollout heights for battery capacities up to 5,000 lbs and fitted with our reliable 1,800 lbs electromagnetic extraction system.

Engineered with fully welded uni-body construction and finished in a premium acid resistant powder coating, the BTSE utilizes the same powerful and reliable electromagnet extraction system as our man aboard systems to deliver smooth, reliable and damage-free changes battery year in and year out.

  • Automatic time-out on magnet ensures long service life and protects against excess discharge on host truck battery
  • Simplified maintenance and spare parts to deliver years of hassle-free service
  • One-year product warranty and five-year warranty on the magnet only
  • Built to last with robust unibody construction and finished in acid resistant powder coating

CBTE

Cobra Tugger

The Cobra Tugger offers a safe and reliable solution for light duty battery changing applications. Mounted on a walkie or forklift, the Cobra Tugger is a simple and cost-effective way to manage low volume change requirements with a capacity of up to 2,300 lbs.

Combined with a fully electric drive system and a powerful 900 lbs electromagnet extraction, the Cobra Tugger has the same rugged uni-body construction as the BTE series and is equipped with many of the technologies employed on our larger units, including tough battery sliders, added safety features and innovative slider bed design. The low-profile design and simple user controls allow operators to quickly and effectively perform changes in a safe manner.

  • Powerful 900 lb four-pole electromagnet push/pull mechanism improves change speed and substantially reduces the risk of injuries to the operator
  • 2,300 lbs capacity and 24” compartment width allows for extraction and transportation of most sizes of batteries
  • Lead rollers with slider beds
  • Slider bed design restrains the battery automatically, requires no maintenance, and eliminates the need for a time consuming and fragile battery restraint system
  • Built to last with robust unibody construction and finished in acid resistant powder coating
  • Suits most common roll-out heights while still permitting access into our Battery Wash Station directly
