PowerPush


SCHOPF Maschinenbau GmbH’s PowerPush differs from other towbarless pushback systems in that it attaches to the main landing gear and does not lift the aircraft. Aircraft movement is performed by the smooth application of rotational forces to the tires by means of four friction drive rollers. During pushback the PPU is remotely controlled by the headset man. On pushback completion, the PPU is removed from the aircraft by remote command and returns to the operator after the aircraft has departed. PowerPush is faster, safer and cheaper than alternative pushback systems.
