Description: Same great power and moving capacity as the larger gas powered unit, but in an electric model! The EL3-H model AirTug® is the tug of choice for those who need to lower the tail to enter a hangar, and might also need to handle nose-wheel fairing aircraft. The nose-wheel is loaded the same as the Model 10-H, and then it can be raised by a hydraulic jack up as much as needed to a maximum of  7'', thus lowering the tail by approximately double this amount. Additionally, it is easy to use because of its' unique “Twist Grip Control” system utilizing a hydrostatic transmission and a heavy duty electric motor. We guarantee your safety with our “Return to Brake” feature that absolutely prevents any unintentional movement of the plane when the throttle grip is released. There is no metal to metal contact, no gears to shift and no jerky clutching systems to quickly wear out. Finally, its’ pinpoint handling allows the operator to pivot as tight as desired as a result of the differential transmission. This combined with a twist grip control and a large, handle-mounted Caster makes this walk-behind aircraft tug a great choice. All of these features simply make this aircraft tug the best in the industry!
