News & Innovations

Power. Persistence. Endurance. 

»SHERPA« is the very first baggage and cargo tow tractor from Goldhofer.

This modular vehicle can be customized and configured in line with the respective tasks: three different diesel engine power rates, an electric driven version with Lithium-Ion battery, three different cabin variants and five different ballasting classes are just the beginning!
Thanks to extremely easy and safe operation, low and wide cabin access as well as ergonomic axle and seat suspension, this comfortable vehicle ensures optimal workflows. Compact dimensions, a 360° view for the driver and a large number of other convenient functions ideally complement the well-thought-out »SHERPA« concept. And, while the maintenance effort for
this tow tractor has been reduced to a minimum, its large diesel tank can hold enough fuel for two shifts. At the end of the day, this means that you’re looking at extremely high levels of availability and reliability.
