Electro Kinetic Technologies' electric lithium tuggers offer Bluetooth capability for battery monitoring along with swappable batteries.

The Pony Express 1061 LITHIUM and 1061-HD LITHIUM electric tuggers are able to pull or push a load of up to 1,500 (680 kg) and 2,000 lb. (907 kg), respectively.

They feature lithium iron phosphate swappable battery packs which allow for 24/7 operation. The battery pack weighs less than 34 lb. (15 kg) but delivers the performance of a 40 AH lithium iron phosphate battery and has UN38.3 certification allowing for global safe transport. With Bluetooth compatibility and a smartphone monitoring app, the battery pack will alert when its charge is low.


The tuggers can be hitched to a variety of carts with a compact design to navigate tight and narrow spaces safely. The ergonomically designed tiller head is adjustable, allowing each operator's correct height.
