How To Choose The Right Aircraft Tug

Airplane Tug Pre-Purchase Checklist

With so many choices, it’s no wonder why aircraft owners have so much trouble settling on the aircraft tug that is just right for their needs. As one can imagine, not all tugs are created equally, nor will they work with every type of airplane.

Airtug LLC gives the aviation consumer numerous choices amongst their family of tugs that are widely known in the industry under the Airtug and Dragger brands respectively. Our airplane tugs can be seen pushing and pulling numerous types of aircraft in many places around the world.

Starting with the most economical option as well as for tailwheel aircraft under 1500 pounds, you will probably get by with our manually operated tug model known as the Tail Dragger Dragger® S-2. This provides the average individual with a much better and safer alternative to pushing and pulling on different parts of the airplane not intended for such force. Lets not forget that it’s also much easier. However, some individuals with even the lightest weight aircraft may desire a tug with a motor.

Choosing the right aircraft tug can make your experience at the hangar a happy one. Nothing worse than getting to the airport and not being able to get your airplane in or out of the hangar. For the budget conscious consumer, Airtug manufactures tugs known as Draggers starting at just $1595 for our gasoline powered version and $1695 for our electric powered version. For aircraft owners operating heavier equipment and that want the ability to move an aircraft like a pro but for thousands less – our Airtug brand of tugs are perfect.

Deciding on the right aircraft tug can be simple if you answer the following questions. How much do you want to spend? Are you moving more than one plane? How much does your plane weigh? Is it a nosewheel or tailwheel aircraft. Do you want an aircraft tug that keeps the nosewheel on the pavement or one that lifts it off the pavement? Do you like the idea of a battery powered aircraft tug or gasoline? These questions coupled with others specific to dimensional issues will help you make the right decision.
