|The 6-H model AirTug® is the tug of choice for those who need to lower the tail to enter a hangar or are working with a lip 3/4″ or greater. The nose-wheel is loaded onto a platform which can then be raised by a hydraulic jack up as much as needed to a maximum of roughly 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 6 HP fixed speed gasoline engine. 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. All of these features simply make this aircraft tug the best in the industry!|
