5 of 5 Excellent Addition June 15, 2023
Reviewer: Douglas Reed from Kingwood, TX United States  
I had had my Tiger for 5 years and used the manual tow bar without too much trouble until recently where I have another aircraft in my hangar. Because of the tight space and the slight uphill slope getting into the hangar the minimax was the perfect solution. the quality of the unit was excellent and it handles the job of moving the aircraft into tight spaces much easier. I would recommend the minimax to anyone who wanted a budget friendly solution.

5 of 5 Great tug, fast shipping/great customer service May 24, 2022
Reviewer: Patrick Bailey from Fort Worth, TX United States  
The tug is a quality product. Fit and finish are perfect. The tug arrived 3 days after I ordered it. In that shipment the easy mover attachment was for a different plane. I contacted the company and a new one was shipped out the next day. I highly recommend this product and this company.

4 of 5 Good product, but needs a tweak or two November 23, 2021
Reviewer: Rob  
Got the mini-max with Milwaukee power system for a 4 seat GA aircraft.  I live in a snowy region so I also purchased the snow tires, wheel weight hubs and the speedy mover.  Everything about the mini-max works great except the snow tires with the speedy mover and the heavier Milwaukee are not designed well together.  The snow tires are larger tires and the speed mover attachment needs to be longer to deal with the extra size of the tires.  When you combine it with the heavier Milwaukee power system over the DeWalt, it can hardly stand upright without falling over.  It is literally teetering on the edge of tipping over.  I haven't added the wheel weights yet but I'm hopeful with the wheel weights on that it will provide enough forward ballast to help keep it standing up when not in use.  The only other alternative will be to have someone cut and extend the speedy movers for me.
