I have to tell you I was hesitant for a long period of time, mainly cost $. My 182E backcountry machine is heavy & does not give up movement easily, Newtons Law. This, in itself, limited my ability & of course concerns of personal injury were constantly at the forefront. We fly for freedom, it is who we are as pilots. This now essential (in my mind) piece of equipment, guarantees us the ability to exercise that freedom without restriction. It is liberating to a great degree,,,,,at any time you can take advantage of a cool, crisp morning or an evening jaunt around the pattern on the sunset. Scale of 1 - 10,,,,,100. If you are on the fence, jump off, you will not regret the decision. Tell Jim I sent you, he will take of the details as he always does.

I got my husband a robot of a year ago. Ive intentionally waited this long to leave a review to see how well it works (or not). Well, my husband loves it! He used to use a converted mower/tug, but had to battle with keeping it running. He now hooks up the Robotow and moves our Mooney in and out with ease. Our hanger has rather large tracks to go over so weve made plywood boards to assist as a ramp on either side of track. It helps a little. The only downside I would give this item, is battery life/ power. It could use more amperage and longer life. We do get about 3 or 4 uses ( in and out = 1). On the last use we have to give a little punch over the track. Im now wanting to get an extra battery for his birthday!! We love it!
