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.

5 of 5 Tug for Grumman Tiger November 9, 2021
Reviewer: Wayne Bunker from Cape Carteret, NC United States  
Overall very pleased with the Minimax Aircraft Tug.  It is very well built and easy to assemble and the instructional videos on putting it together are well done.  I have a slight incline to deal with and traction is challenging at times but very workable.  Fortunately my hangar and driveway is broomed concrete.  I was going to paint/seal my floor but will not do that for traction reasons.  Highly recommend the quick move wheel option.  They work very well.  Hooking it up to the nosewheel takes some getting used to but you will get the hang of it overtime.  The tug arrived slightly ahead of schedule which was nice.  Solid and effective product for the price.

5 of 5 Minimal tug for Grumman Tiger October 8, 2021
Reviewer: Frank lunn from Chatham, NH United States  
This unit is solidly built, exactly what you would expect for Made in the USA! The transmission is built like a Mack truck! I found it quick and easy to assemble. I do agree that the accessory wheels really speed the process of locating the tug. The extended handle prevents back sprain. Excellent product.

5 of 5 Drill Driven Tug for Grumman September 23, 2021
Reviewer: Michael Havertape from lake Alfred, FL United States  
Easy to use, line up and connect. Ten times more
convenient to use than the other brand that I had. Default drill has plenty of power and I was surprised how quickly it can move my plane.
