Tail Dragger Tug

This tug ships with a 20V Dewalt power system. If you want more power, the Milwaukee 28V power system must be purchased as an option.

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

The tug is doing perfectly.  I love the precision it gives me in running the plane in and out of a tight space.  Thank you.

4 of 5 Happy with tug on Piper Cub November 27, 2013
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Norton, KS United States  
I am happy with the tug on my Cub as it will save a lot of wear and tear on me and the struts, etc. where I usually push.  I can maneuver the Cub into the hanger very easily and quickly now.   I like the simplicity of the tug, plus I always have a drill handy if I need one, and it's light weight and small.  Very close to being perfect.

5 of 5 Nice November 19, 2012
Reviewer: Dr.B. from IA  
Surprised at all the assembly req'd. when I got it. Heavy too! Not a big deal I guess and kind of fun really. A friend bought a built tug and the shipping was over $300. It does not perform as well as my Minimax and he paid twice what I paid. I am very happy with it and the minimax folks are very nice to deal with. That is a real plus IMO.
