Basic tail dragger tug April 11, 2019
Reviewer: S. Gray from WA  
Because of a lot of reasons we don’t need to get into today was the first day the tug really got some use.  It’s right on.  Works perfectly.  And easy to use.  I did use it on the slowest setting because I’m new to it.  I was concerned about turning but that proved to not be an issue.  It works like a tow bar but I don’t have to put in any effort to the get the job done.  Great product.  But one comment: I ordered a second battery and don’t think that is needed.  One battery seems to be all anyone would need for normal ops.  It’s hard to believe that something this simple does such a great job.

Brushless DeWalt drill motor June 27, 2017
Reviewer: Steve from Washington  
I just updated by tail wheel tug with the new brushless Dewalt and it made a huge difference, significantly improved power over the previous Dewalt

Taildragger Tug August 4, 2013
Reviewer: Gilbert Pierce from Germantown, TN United States  
I use this tug on grass and up hill and also up a ramp. It is equipped with the snow tires. Even when muddy it does a great job. As a previous reviewer mentioned, set your tail wheel low in the cradle and practice. A little practice gets you the hang of maneuvering the airplane. It makes moving my airplane much much easier.

Set tire low in cradle. July 21, 2013
Reviewer: Mark J. from MD United States  
I was told that practice makes perfect using this tug. Definitely true. I was fighting the tug instead of letting it do the work. I set the tire low in the cradle to keep it from swiveling. That I think was the key.
