The perfect tug for your Grumman. It works with all models of the AA1 and AA5. This tug ships with a 20V Dewalt power system. If you want more power, the Milwaukee 28V power system must be purchased as an option.

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.

The wheel weight hubs are only the hubs and do not come with the weights themselves. The weights ship for free from the vendor in the link.
NOTE: These are the ONLY weights which fit our weight hubs

5 of 5 Minimax Grumman Tug May 9, 2021
Reviewer: Judith Rice  
I ask myself,  "Why did I wait so long to purchase the Minimax tug for my Grumman AA1A?!"  Incredible quality and customer service.  You won't regret any purchase regardless of aircraft.

5 of 5 Quick Repair January 22, 2021
Reviewer: Larry Tatsch from Princeton, NJ United States  
Due to a problem that was mostly my fault, I bent a part on my new Minimax. I called Brandon, we troubleshot the problem and he quickly sent me a new part at no charge. It's now reassembled and ready for me to use on my Tiger again - this time correctly! Excellent customer support.
