Electric Model EL3-S Aircraft Tug w/Fixed Platform


Description: Same great power and moving capacity as the larger gas powered unit, but in a QUIET electric model! The EL3-S model AIRTUG is extremely easy to use because of its’ unique “Throttle Grip Control” system utilizing a Hydrostatic Transmission, Heavy Duty Electric Motor, powerful Batteries, and built-in Battery Charger. We guarantee your safety with our “Return to Brake” feature that absolutely prevents any unintentional movement of the plane when the throttle grip is released. There is no metal to metal contact, no gears to shift and no jerky clutching systems to quickly wear out. Finally, its’ pinpoint handling combining twist grip control with a large, handle-mounted Caster makes this walk-behind Airtug a great choice. A light is also built in for ease of of seeing under the fuselage at night. All of these features simply make this QUIET, aircraft tug the best value in the industry!
