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

5 of 5 Boss Tug June 25, 2021
Reviewer: Kent Williams from Port Alsworth, Alaska, United States  
the assembly was fast and easy, and they shipped it to me ahead of schedule so that it could get a free ride to Alaska.  it even works well in the gravel in front of my hangar that has a fairly strong slope.  it helped greatly to let a little air out of the tires!

4 of 5 Nice but... April 6, 2021
Reviewer: Steve Hill from Moriarty, NM United States  
The box was damaged but the only damage was a bend in the tail wheel plate. Straightened it out at the cost of some powder coating. Easy to assemble. Mods will be reqd to work on our 1950 Bellanca 14-19. It just barely fits on the tailwheel because of the scissor mechanism on the aircraft.  The tail lift lever hits the rudder when turning.  The 210# on the tailwheel is within the advertised wt limit.  I thought traction would be OK on bare concrete but the wheels spin until you get it moving with a good push. We have the Milwaukee powered version.  Wheel weights might have been worth it.  Their clever trick to avoid needing a differential works somewhat but turning is still hard.  A free-wheeling mode would be nice since it is slow getting the unit back in the hangar.  It high-centers on the 1 inch angles at the base of the Stack Doors which will require a ramp.  I am hoping that our investment will provide a good starting point that will work after modifications and more practice.
