Linde Material Handling has expanded its range of electric tow tractors with the launch of its latest P20 model with a two tonne towing capacity, making it capable of pulling up to five small trailers.

This new addition has a compact design and extends the company’s existing range of tractors, previously covering the 3 to 25 tonne towing capacity band.

Primarily intended for indoor use, particularly in confined spaces, the tractor is suitable for a wide range of applications. Its chassis width of 600 mm and 3-wheel configuration ensures high manoeuvrability, allowing the vehicle to be operated in tight corners in factories, warehouses and stores.

The Linde P20 tractor is also available as a platform truck, with a carrying capacity of 400 kilogrammes, for use in production environments such as the automotive industry or to aid maintenance crews carrying around heavy tool boxes. In addition, the option of increased ground clearance from 40 to 80 millimetres ensures that both tractor and platform truck are capable of outdoor use.

These models have a maintenance-free 1.5 kW AC drive motor and their batteries can be replaced either laterally or vertically for quick changing in multi-shift applications.
