DESCRIPTION ASSEMBLY INSTRUCTIONS
 
This tug ships with a 20V Dewalt power system. If you want more power, the 60 Volt Dewalt power system must be purchased as an option.

This tug works on PA-28 and PA-32 fixed gear aircraft

Cherokee Six, Archer, Dakota, and 235 requires 60 Volt Dewalt power system found above in the "Product Options".


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.

If you are purchasing Wheel Weight Hubs you must click HERE to purchase 2 - 25 lb. cast iron weights.
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


NOTE:
Some tow plates are located very close to the nose gear fairing. Attach your hand tow bar to tow plate letting it rest atop the fairing. Viewing from the side, note if tow bar handle is above or below a visual level line from tow plate. If level or above, you must purchase the tow plate in the "Product Options" above for fairing clearance and optimal towing performance. If below level, it isn't necessary .

5 of 5 Its the perfect little tug August 6, 2022
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Culver, IN United States  
When I started doing research on what tug to buy for my Cherokee 180, everyone kept telling me to look into the Minimax Tug because It’s the perfect little tug.  Well, I bought one.  Yes it’s little but it packs a big punch.  I’m completely satisfied with the product.  It does exactly what I need it to do.  It’s a really well thought out design coupled with high quality parts.  100 percent satisfied.

5 of 5 minimax tug review March 1, 2022
Reviewer: steve johnson from 1B9  
i have two aircraft closely positioned in my hangar.  moving them breathtakingly close to each other by hand was scary.  my friend nearby has a minimax; so, i borrowed it for a few trials.  i became convinced.  purchased the "heavy duty" version and love it!  i can focus on the maneuvering without the strain of pushing or pulling the aircraft in the hanger.   worth the price in peace of mind as well as vastly improved capability .

5 of 5 Minimax Piper Wheel Pants Tug September 1, 2021
Reviewer: David Reynolds from Logansville, GA United States  
Very happy with the tug. The only issues I had was in the assembly - hard to get the link between the drill and transmission properly seated because the foam centering plug wasn’t centered - mage a cardboard piece. And the video instruction wasn’t for the Piper tug - mounted the bracket backwards the first time.
It works really well and was very cost efficient.
