RACKLIFT™ RL2000T Electric Tug

The RackLift RL2000T electric tug eliminates employee injuries caused by excessive push/pull associated with manual forces applied to roll cabinets manually or move loaded carts.   The tug does all the hard work with the push of a button found on the ergonomic handle that adjusts to the user’s height.  The variable speed control operates in forward or reverse up to three miles per hour (4.8 km/hr).  The panel includes an on/ off switch, emergency stop button, horn and battery level indicator.   The automatic sleep mode conserves battery power when not in use.  The tug comes to a controlled stop if the operator lets go of the controls.

The RL2000T is designed to tug weights up to 2,000 pounds (1,134 kg) so it’s an ideal match to pull the RL5000E or RL3000.  The unit accommodates a wide range of standard and custom hitches.  (ordered separately)

The tug is designed to handle harsh industrial environments with its heavy duty powder-coated steel construction and foam-filled never-flat drive tires.  The tires are also non-marking, maintenance-free tires ideally suited to the data center.
