most 3 wheel lift trucks you find today will be electric
electric lift trucks are not designed to do any type of pulling at all.

overloading the drive system with more stress than it is already designed to pull (pulling the truck and its rated capacity) will cause you more problems down the road than you want to deal with.

you will need to find you a tug that will be able to handle pulling that load.
