Built on our popular MP-250 base, the more powerful MT-290 is equal parts modern workhorse and mobile workshop. Its efficient AC motor offers impressive acceleration, even when towing loads of 16,000 lbs.* Its all-steel construction and four-wheel vibration dampening design ensure a smooth and stable ride even on bumpy surfaces. This agile, round-the-clock tow tractor effortlessly maneuvers through challenging areas, including doorways. A multi-purpose tugger boasting a long-lasting industrial battery with easy under-the-seat access.

  • Battery-saving efficient DC/DC converter equalizes battery cells by converting 36V or 48V to 12V for accessories. Batteries are therefore discharged more evenly, resulting in better output and a longer battery life.
  • AC controller with sealed connectors paired with multifunction display allows for precise speed control for greater safety and vehicle performance. Includes indicators for speed, battery state of charge, hour meter, odometer and fault warnings. Password-protected parameters and monitoring capability.
  • Robust long-life industrial batteries no more mid-shift recharging! These powerful batteries can last a full shift, even with long distances. Supports Opportunity Rapid charging. Encased for easy replacing. Various options and models available.
  • High-efficiency asynchronous AC / Direct Drive motor offers better control for full motor performance, as well as higher possible speeds and better torque at low speeds. Maintenance-free brushless electric motor equipped with temperature and speed sensors.
  • Powerful automatic electromagnetic parking brake increases safety by automatically applying the parking brake whenever the vehicle stops moving or is shut off. Also doubles as an emergency stop. Entirely sealed to protect it from debris, elements, etc.
