5 of 5 Awesome! April 20, 2023
Reviewer: Paul Weinheimer from Amarillo, TX United States  
Does the job nicely. Apply some light down pressure and works like a charm. I’ve got a gradual incline of 1in of rise per 12in and the 20V is plenty. I can’t push it up my slope on my own and this device is just the extra I was looking for!

5 of 5 A great solution to our back breaking problem! July 8, 2022
Reviewer: Kathryn Reid from North Vancouver, BC Canada  
We are a flying club with a hangar for our airplane that was impossible for one person to push the plane back in.  It has a small lip at the doors and is a little uphill.  With the Minimax tug, getting it in solo is a breeze.  We are very happy with this purchase.   It takes a little practise to manoeuvre smoothly but the learning curve is shallow and member orientation is quick.
