Eagle RTT-18

Extremely efficient, 48V A/C electric tow tractor that can tow up to 18,000 lbs. Fully adjustable seat for both Stand-up and Sit-down operation. Designed to be used with optional "smart charge" battery and charger systems to allow for opportunity charging at shift changes and breaks to provide 3 shifts of operation without having to change batteries.

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.
