Lindbergh Aircraft Tug Co. has introduced a new small electric airplane tug that pulls up to 4,000 lbs.
The new battery powered, walk-behind, electric airplane tug, called the AircraftCaddy 4K Jr., is designed for one person to push and pull an airplane in and out of a hangar, company officials said. This design came from customers inquiring on a simpler, and more cost effective tug that only pulls and pushes smaller planes without having all the flexibility of some of the company’s larger tugs, officials add.
The AircraftCaddy 4K Jr airplane tug has smooth acceleration and braking systems that eliminates the rough starting/stopping of gas powered clutching systems, officials said.
