Description: Same great power and moving capacity as the 10-S gas powered unit, but in a QUIET electric model! The EL3-S model AirTug® is extremely easy to use because of its’ unique “Twist Grip Control” system utilizing a hydrostatic transmission, heavy duty electric motor, powerful Batteries, and on board Smart Battery Charger. We ensure your safety with our “Return to Brake” feature that prevents any unintentional movement of the plane when the twist 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 QUIET, aircraft tug the best value in the industry!
