Product Information

The P60Z is a three-wheel electric tow tractor from Linde ideally suited for a range of industrial applications. It was designed to provide maximum operator comfort, minimize operator fatigue, increase productivity and lower lifetime costs. With a nominal towing capacity of 13,000 lbs and an unloaded traction speed of 11 MPH, the P60Z electric tow tractor also offers an exclusive range of optional equipment to ensure that it is highly versatile and can be adapted to any application. As standard, a multi-position, rear-towing coupling is included and the carrying compartment at the rear of the chassis has a load capacity of 330 lbs.


  • Modern Styling & Powerful Towing Capability
  • Compact, Rugged Design for Excellent Maneuverability & Versatility
  • Smooth, Energy Efficient, Virtually Noise Free, Digital Traction Control
  • Ergonomically-designed Operator’s Compartment
  • Heavy-duty High Performance Design
  • Integral Chassis Suspension & Low Center of Gravity Provide Both Excellent Anti-roll Handling Characteristics & Superb Stability


The Linde P60Z tow tractor is powered by a 3.2 kW separately excited drive motor that is mounted transversely on the drive axle. The tow tractor’s rear wheels receive power via a rugged drive axle and differential. A microprocessor-based, digital, high frequency control system works in conjunction with the drive motor to enable precise speed control and acceleration, ensuring safe operation and high productivity. Because of this highly efficient system, a high number of work cycles can be achieved between each battery charge. The manual steering on the P60Z tow tractor is light and responsive. Minimal steering effort is needs on the part of the operator to ensure high maneuverability and minimal operator fatigue.

The latest finite element stress analysis techniques were used when designing the chassis of the P60Z tow tractor to ensure maximum strength and stability. A lower, pressed steel section provides rugged strength and rigidity to protect all major components. The battery is located between the two axles for maximum stability. The top section of the tow tractor is made up of the hood and seat pan. These are robust, double-skinned, impact resistant, polyethylene moldings. Easy access for maintenance and battery changing can be accomplished by tilting back the seat pan of the P60Z. Excellent ride characteristics are assured by the integral full suspension of the chassis.

Three independent braking systems are included on the P60Z tow tractor. These include hydraulic drum brakes on all three wheels and a hand lever operated parking brake that mechanically connects to the rear wheels. The third braking system consists of electrical regenerative braking. This occurs when the accelerator pedal is released, when the opposite direction of travel is selected or when the accelerator is released on a grade. When electrical regenerative braking occurs, electrical energy is returned to the battery, minimizing wear on the service brakes.

As standard, two headlights, side and rear lights, brake lights and a seven-pin trailer lighting socket come equipped on this Linde tow tractor.

Operator Comfort

The operator compartment on the P60Z Tow Tractor is accessed by a low step, and includes a spacious, uncluttered floor plate covered with a textured, non-slip rubber mat. Safe, efficient and comfortable operation of this tow tractor is achieved thanks to the layout of the pedals, direction lever, steering wheel and controls. Operators know exactly what is going on with the P60Z at all times with the help of the combination instrument panel. This instrument panel tells operators when the parking brake is applied, shows when brake fluid is low and indicates travel direction. The panel also includes a driver alert, turn signal indicator, drive motor brush wear warning, and drive motor temperature warning, which is combined with progressive traction slow down. Maintenance intervals and battery charging schedules can be planned with the instrument panel’s battery discharge indicator and hour meter. This ensures the P60Z tow tractor is at its best at all times. Operators will enjoy the storage space provided for drinks and a clipboard. A document pouch is available on the fully adjustable PVC-covered operator seat.
