3 of 5 Tail wheel tug June 1, 2024
Reviewer: Chad Perkins from Ida, MI United States  
It will definitely move the airplane, front boards and backwards in a straight line, I think my Airplane, which is a MX seven is probably a little too heavy because with the straight handle is very awkward to hold the tail up in the air. The drill keeps coming loose from the driveshaft inside the unit constantly, and I have to make a turn in my hanger in this machine will not do that because it has both wheels that drive, I will probably get a different gearbox and with a single output I think that’ll allow it to turn. I am probably also going to change the handle and put a universal joint in it so I can have a little bit of a bend so it’s not so awkward .

5 of 5 Awesome January 24, 2024
Reviewer: 907herb from Eagle River, AK United States  
I was having trouble getting my cub back in the hanger after it started snowing.  Bought the tug and now it is not a problem. I have the longer handle and regular tires.  Just wonderful.

5 of 5 Tugger that works September 7, 2021
Reviewer: Larry Rhoads from Raymore, MO United States  
The unit works as advertised.  The speed setting on the drill covers a full range of motion from a slow walk to a full run.  My Sopwith weighs about 1000 lbs and the unit moves it smoothly.  Everything arrived in good order and went together well.  The hardest part of the assembly was getting the driveshaft installed.  It took a couple of tries to get the alinement correct.  Works great.

5 of 5 Citabria tug August 5, 2020
Reviewer: Bill Mc from Novato, CA United States  
The unit works very well on my Citabria 7gcaa. Because of the T/W wt (85lbs) I recommend the longer handle. The De Walt drill motor has plenty of power & battery life.
