This year, the engineers at Electro Kinetic Technologies, Inc. have been hard at work constructing the newest innovations in electric material handling capabilities. With the introduction of the
all-new Pony Express 1061 LITHIUM and 1061-HD LITHIUM electric tuggers, the electric tugger line is more powerful than ever, with each tugger able to pull or push a load of up to 1500 lbs. and 2000 lbs., respectively.
These new products feature a wide range of capabilities, including lithium iron phosphate swappable battery packs, and the tuggers’ namesake. This innovative tech allows for 24/7 operation, leading to more efficient project timelines and major cost savings. The battery pack weighs less than 34 lbs., yet delivers the performance you would expect from a 40 Ah lithium iron phosphate battery. Unlike other lithium technologies, these batteries have UN38.3 certification allowing for global safe transport.
Another key feature of these brand-new electric tuggers is their Bluetooth® compatibility and smartphone monitoring app. Not only will the battery pack itself tell you when its charge is getting low, but you can monitor the status right from your smartphone. Operators using this technology will save time and energy from not needing to haul a dead battery all the way back to the charging station, and money savings are a given with battery life being extended 2-3 times.
