    4 of 5 MiniMax Rv8A September 1, 2022
    Reviewer: Dilger, Al from Bakersfield, CA United States  
    Does a good job, I would like to see the lugs on the fork be adjustable which would make it a little easier to set up, also I think the small wheels should be standard rather than an option

    5 of 5 Small tug, big performance! March 17, 2022
    Reviewer: Shawn Easley from Cleveland Heights, OH United States  
    I recently purchased a minimax tug -Milwaukee 20v- for my Vans RV7a. There's a slight incline into my hanger which made putting my plane away rather difficult and nerve-racking.  I could do it manually,  but it required me to rush-push the plane over the high-spot. I became increasingly concerned that the little sped-up/momentum I needed to get the plane over the hump could result in damaging the tail by not stopping in time.
    The Minimax=problem solved! It's a very well designed and built product. Bravo to MM!

    4 of 5 RV7A MINI TUG. A Nice Product-But... December 17, 2021
    Reviewer: William Ippolito from Newport Beach, CA United States  
    I am not sure if they sent me the correct parts? I ordered the RV7A extensions but no instructions were included.  A telephone query supposedly explained it but I could not identify any of the details quoted to me when I actually looked at the tug. However they didn't seem to be needed so I spent $24.95 plus tax etc for nothing.

    5 of 5 Excellent Product September 1, 2021
    Reviewer: RV-7A Pilot from Mt Vernon, IA United States  
    The tug is very capable and removes the roadblock of moving my plane (RV-7A) back into its hanger. There are ramps over a 2” tall lip in front of hanger. Manually moving the plane was becoming a deterrent to flying. This tug eliminated this deterrent.  I’m a very satisfied customer and would recommend it to others.

    It paid for itself the first time I used it !  So nice not to grunt and fart trying to get the bird back inside.
