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.

5 of 5 Tail dragger August 29, 2019
Reviewer: Ken Lifland from McKinney, TX  
When I first got the tug it would not move my Cessna 120 and was hard to use. Brandon when out of his way to help me resolve the issue (I needed to add the weight option) to my tug....like magic it works

5 of 5 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.

5 of 5 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
