Description: The 6-H aircraft tug model is the tug of choice for those who need to lower the tail to enter a hangar, and might also need to handle nose-wheel fairing aircraft. The nose-wheel is loaded the same as the Model 6-H, and then it can be raised by a hydraulic jack up as much as needed to a maximum of roughly 9'', thus lowering the tail by approximately double this amount. Additionally, it is easy to use because of its' unique “Throttle Grip Control” system utilizing a hydrostatic transmission and a 6HP variable speed gasoline engine. 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 makes this unit a great choice. All of these features simply make this aircraft tug the best in the industry!
