Works great for dragging or pushing my Pacer around. Collapses to fit into the luggage compartment but Ill probably do as others did and drill another hole by the T part of the handle so you can slide the handle through the pipe instead of having to turn the handle around. Nice length clearing the elevator and giving good leverage. Paint is thick, soft, and will probably chip off with more use but its a tool to be used and not for show.

Game changer for getting the Champ in and out of the hangar. Fits fine on Scott 3200. Anything heavier than the Champ at gross (~1400) would be a challenge to push even on the level.
