5 of 5 Cessna 172 Tug June 13, 2024
Reviewer: Roy Uptegraff from Mc Kees Rocks, PA United States  
After looking aorund on the web and watching a few minimax tug videos on YouTube, I purchased the tug.
The delivery was prompt, the assembly was straight forward, and the performance of the tug is great.

5 of 5 Cessna 172M April 16, 2024
Reviewer: Jim Croome from Sandersville, GA United States  
The Drill Tug worked fantastic in moving my 172 around.  I have to push it up a slight hill backward and it has no problem moving it right along.

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!
