Q: What adapter comes with the tug?

There is a universal adapter included.

Q: Does this come with an adapter for a Bonanza A36? Also what handle does this come equipped with. I see two different versions.

Per the manufacturer: For the Bonanza we just need to know if he has the castle nut on his nose gear or not. The unit comes always with the first adapter included. This comes with the standard handle.
