---------- 2001 AND NEWER MUST ORDER "Cessna Side Hubs" OPTION ---------

This tug is a turn key operation and ships stock with 28V power system(Drill, battery, and charger).
Designed for maximum traction!

If you have a smooth concrete, or epoxy painted hangar floor, we recommend buying our Traction Tape or Wheel Weight Hubs option to prevent tire slippage.
If purchasing wheel weight hubs, click HERE to purchase 2-25lb. CAP cast iron weights.
These are the ONLY weights which fit our weight hubs.

Some tow pins are located very close to the nose gear fairing. Attach your hand tow bar to tow pins letting it rest atop the fairing's HIGHEST POINT. This may require you to insert a thin straight edge between the top of fairing and bottom of tow bar. (A combination square metal rule is perfect) Viewing from the side, note if tow bar handle is above or below a visual level line from tow pins. If level or above, you will need the "Cessna Side Hubs" option. If below level, you're good with stock forks.

4 of 5 Aircraft Tug December 13, 2019
Reviewer: Adam Joiner from Vinemont, AL United States  
I have used the tug two times and Both times the tires spun on the concrete. However the tug has plenty of power to pull the 206 if I can get it to catch traction.

5 of 5 Loved my Minimax Tug Cessna 182 September 6, 2019
Reviewer: Gregory Garcia from Sacramento, CA United States  
I assembled my tug in about 45 minutes and it worked on my Cessna 182 perfectly.  I have a slight slope coming out of the hangar and it performed without a hitch pulling the aircraft out and pulling it into the hangar easily over the hangar door rails.  My daughter manipulated the aircraft turning the nose gear without any difficulty.  I haven't tried to tug the aircraft any farther than in & out of the hangar but there's always plenty of battery power.  I always leave the battery on the charger after every use.  I'm completely satisfied with the Minimax Tug and would recommend it for any Cessna 182.  I did have to apply a little pressure on the top the first time over the hanger door rails but now with a little speed it performs with no pressure at all.
