The rugged, heavy chassis is fabricated from 10 mm thick steel plates that protect the drive unit housed within the front end.
Generously rounded corners at the front minimize chances of impact while maneuvering in tight spaces.
The traction battery is strategically located at the front end to utilize the force of its weight on the front drive wheel and ensure suf???cient traction even when the tow truck pulls the full rated load.
The AC traction motor, gearbox, and polyurethane drive wheel form a well integrated, robust and powerful drive unit for the tow truck.
The brushless AC drive motor offers the benefits of higher energy efficiency, quiet operation, lower heat losses, longer battery life and superior driving control besides being maintenance free.
The AC microprocessor-based programmable MOSFET controller governs the traction system and guarantees a smooth, energy efficient control of the machine.
It allows us to program the machine performance parameters to suit various applications and user requirements.
Instrumentation includes an ignition switch, full function tiller handle for steering, acceleration and forward/reverse direction control, battery discharge indicator,
hour meter, and an emergency stop switch.
A 24V, 320 Ah lead acid battery with a 5-hour rate of discharge is the power source.
A tough, steel door with a toggle lock clamp keeps the battery in place while a roll-out system enables a quick change within minutes.
An electromagnetic brake on the traction motor makes the braking system integral with the drive. By either removing his thumb off the butterfly throttle switch or aking his left foot off the operator-sensing pedal, the driver automatically applies the fail-safe electromagnetic brake, bringing the truck to a stop.
The operator sensing pedal on the floor guarantees safety by disconnecting the drive circuit instantly and applying the brake when the operator takes his left foot off this pedal.
This electromagnetic brake also acts as a fail-safe parking brake even on slopes making the tow truck very safe to drive.

For the most energy efficient and safe operation, it is desirable to have the towing bar as close to horizontal as possible. To achieve this condition while
accommodating different vertical positions of the towing device on trolleys, Godrej Tow Trucks have a towing pin bracket that can be set at 3 different vertical positions on the back plate of the chassis.
Further, since the towing pin bracket is bolted to the frame, it is easy to replace it with any other kind of towing attachment that suits your specific needs.
The board is less than 150 mm (6 inches)off the ground, making it possible to virtually ‘walk’ into or out of the truck. This, along with a spacious operator area is of vital importance when the operator has to get on and off the truck frequently, to hitch or uncouple the trolley(s) from the towing pin.
A cushioned backrest that stretches the full height of the back plate on the chassis provides an excellent support for the operator at all times.
