|This towbar model TY-TB-FTD can be used to tow most aircraft with a nose wheel gross weight of up to 4,000 lbs. For use as a flat tire dolly the max load should not exceed 6,000 lbs. This towbar can also be used in cases where it is necessary to lower the tail of the aircraft to get into some T-Hangars. This towbar is very easy on the aircraft. The strap and tires absorb the startup shock. If you turn past the limits (donít), the nose wheel will slide on the pan. With the tow bar mounted on the front of the tug, drive the towbar up to the front of the tire. Stop a few inches short. Place the rubber protected hook or strap around the strut and winch it up on the pan to the stop.|
