At the request of a major U.S. auto manufacturer, Eagle Tugs accepted the challenge of creating an industrial tow tractor that would allow them to standardize their global fleet. After years of research and design, with the collaboration of ergonomic and safety engineers and continuous feedback from tow tractor operators world-wide, the Eagle RTT was born. Eagle Tugs proudly introduces this new generation of electric tuggers that are energy-efficient, ergonomically-correct, and flexible enough to meet material handling needs across multiple manufacturing and distribution platforms.
The RTT was designed to maximize reliability and reduce unproductive "down-time". With its solid steel plate construction and its vibration reducing front and rear suspension, the RTT features an unsurpassed 1,000-hour Preventative Maintenance schedule. Adding to the RTT's reliability is its high-efficiency A/C electric drive, which requires no preventative maintenance. When you team this with a "Smart Charge" battery and charger, the result is a material handling tool with unparalleled productivity that can streamline any operation.
By choosing the Eagle RTT as the standard for your entire tow tractor fleet, the result is reduced cost of ownership by having one set of replacement parts, fewer maintenance personnel, and reduced operator and maintenance training time.
