Tow tractors P30

Space-saving tow tractor solution

Maneuver and transport materials in narrow aisles safely and with agility

Linde Material Handling's P30 electric tow tractor and platform truck are perfect for flexible and safe transport over short and medium distances; even (and especially) when there is very little space available. The truck features precise self-centering power steering that the driver safely controls using the ergonomic two-handled steering unit. In addition, the P30's compact design makes maneuvering narrow aisles easier. The powerful three-phase motor accelerates quickly to its maximum speed. For comfort and stability while driving, the trucks are equipped with an adjustable backrest and a full-suspension standing platform with a nonslip floor covering. The P30 has a maximum load capacity of three tons. It can reach a maximum speed of 10 kilometers per hour.



The compact design of the steering unit prevents wide-sweeping movements, increasing driver safety. . While driving, the driver always remains within the protective confines of the truck, behind a four-millimeter-thick steel chassis. In addition, the ergonomic steering unit handles provide a safe grip and protect the hands. The nonslip floor covering also increases the stability of the driver. When cornering, the truck automatically reduces its speed. Hill-start assist prevents the P30 from rolling backwards on gradients.

  • Start driving on uphill gradients without rolling backwards


A full-suspension platform and an additional cushioned foot mat prevent the driver from experiencing strong vibrations. Additionally, the driver can adjust the backrest to his or her exact height to relieve strain on the back while driving. Wide, spacious storage compartments are available so that the driver can always have all of his or her tools close at hand. All control elements are intuitive and ergonomic, making them easy to use.

The P30 features a powerful 3-kW three-phase motor, which accelerates quickly to its maximum speed, even when the truck is pulling its maximum three-ton load capacity. This provides increased handling performance even during rigorous continuous operation, together with effective brakes, which ensure that the truck comes to a stop quickly. Precise power steering and compact design are also important. Power steering simplifies many maneuvers when limited space is available.

  • Maximum speed with and without a load
  • Effective brakes
  • Precise power steering
  • Compact design


The truck undergoes a quick service test after every 1000 operating hours. The technician then reads all of the truck's data using the CAN bus interface and checks it on a laptop. The relevant service components can then be easily accessed. The three-phase motor is maintenance-free.
