Description: Same great power and moving capacity as the 6-S gas powered unit, but in a QUIET electric model! The EL8-S model AirTug® is extremely easy to use because of its’ unique “Thumb Throttle” system utilizing an electric transaxle with differential and on board Smart Battery Charger. 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.  All of these features simply make this QUIET, aircraft tug the best value in the industry!
