4 of 5 Nice little tug. Fast response to minor issue. June 16, 2020
Reviewer: MPB from DAMMERON VALLEY, UT United States  
Like the tug. When I bought the airplane, the owner threw in his very cumbersome, bulky tug. Functional but hard to use. The DA40 has a non caste ring nose wheel and it’s tougher to push straight back than my old 172.
The shipment was missing the hardware pack, so I left a message on a Sunday and got a same day response. They shipped it out on Monday.
Assembly was pretty easy, even with a broken collarbone. Tug is pretty light and easy to use. . I did not get the wheel weights but it works just fine without them

1 of 5 DA-40 tug_ Total time used less then 10 hours July 11, 2019
Reviewer: Peter Kwan from Markham, ON Canada  
They sold me a discontinued product without any disclosure. Two weeks after my order of the Tugs they launched a modified new transmission tugs while I am still waiting for my Tugs to come. If the company could be more thoughtful to the clients they could have advised me and I would have wait and make the purchase after the new transmission is finished. Total time used of the tug less then 10 hours and now go to garbage.

5 of 5 Diamond DA40/50 Tug September 5, 2016
Reviewer: Danny Ellis from Pocahontas, AR United States  
I recently had some problems with the transmission on my 3 year old tug that was covered by the lifetime warranty. They replaced the transmission free of charge and it is working like a charm! Thanks Minimax!

5 of 5 Great product June 6, 2013
Reviewer: Vincent R from OK  
can't believe the power! Get out of the way. My castering nose wheel makes it kind of hard to steer in a turn. Took some practice but now its easy to turn.
Would recommend to anyone without hesitation.
