Remote Control Tug

Product From Aircraft Spruce & Specialty

The iTowBot's loading sequence is as easy as driving the unit directly under the nosewheel of your aircraft. The iTowbot is engineered so that when the aircraft loads, the weight of the loaded aircraft does not inhibit its zero-turn capability. This allows the operator to articulate the aircraft in a manner that places it ahead of all other towing equipment. A foot-operated release allows the operator to unlock the swivel carriage and merely back out from beneath the nosewheel.
