The VThrust Aero Tugger makes it quick and easy to move nearly all light airplanes using an off-the-shelf 18-24 volt drill as its power source. The Tugger can move airplanes up to 3,000 pounds (empty) including those with wheel pants — even up 3% grades.
Built of stainless steel, the Tugger is corrosion free. A toe-controlled nose gear engagement requires no bending or stooping. Two drive wheels add stability and better traction on wet surfaces and make for easy maneuvering in tight spaces.
The cordless drill detaches easily so you can still use it for its originally intended purpose. When the Tugger is not in use, its dolly wheels allow for easy movement around the hangar.
Made in the U.S.A., a VThrust Aero Tugger that is steerable is available for $1,495. One that is unsteerable is available for $1,195. Adapters are available for Beechcraft aircraft ($29.95), Piper aircraft for fixed gear with wheel pants ($29.95) and a set of two for Diamond DA-40 aircraft ($59.95). All other aircraft work without an adapter.
The required cordless drill is available through Sporty’s or at any local hardware store.
