The Might-E Tug is a multi-purpose 3-wheeled electric towing unit designed to move a wide variety of objects ranging from carts and bins up to small planes and cars. It was developed by Canadian Electric Vehicles in their manufacturing facility in Errington, British Columbia.
The Might-E Tug was first built in 1997 and largely resembled the present day model. Since then, improvements have been made to enable larger manufacturing as well as longer life span and reliability. A Super Duty version has also been developed for larger applications.
Powered by a 24 Volt lead acid battery pack, the Might-E Tug holds 100 amp hours of energy and is capable of offering 3/4 Horsepower through its direct motor to transaxle drive train. Weighing 200 pounds, it is capable of outputting 140 pound force capable of towing 2000 pounds. The user operates the Might-E Tug by the tiller handle which includes a key switch, dead man switch, charge indicator and potentiometer throttle to allow for variable speed in both forward and reverse.
The Super Duty Might-E Tug was designed to pull objects too large for the regular Standard Duty. Compared to its counterpart, the Super Duty weights 390 pounds and is capable of towing 7000 pound objects with its 280 pound pulling force. It is powered by a 24 volt lead acid battery pack containing 220 amp hours of battery life.
