Product Description

The Eagle EB2-10 Bob Tail tow tractor is North American airlines and western military GSE’s preferred all-weather, multi-purpose, high-speed cargo tractor, capable of towing ground support equipment of up to 43,091 kg (95,000 lbs) at 40 kph (25 mph).

With over 40 years of experience, the Eagle Bob Tail design has proven to have an unmatched commercially demonstrated, reliable drive train and braking system. This high-speed tow tractor features a Ford F-750 cab and chassis, providing the operator with a strong and stable tug.

The Ford cabs are comfortable and safe. The operator is able to have direct hitch visibility due to the rear hitch sight tunnel. For extra protection and to ensure ballast, this cargo tug features a heavy steel tubular grill guard and side protection for its front and rear bumpers.

Equipped with a 170 litre (45 gallons) diesel tank and a rated output up to 242 kW (325 HP), this cargo tow tractor has fuel capacity for working long periods of time and covering long distances. Complete with a heavy-duty air cleaner suitable for severe environments and a dry replacement element.

The recognition of the Eagle Bob Tail unit as the leader in high-speed, long-distance, cargo-towing has made many companies attempt to replicate the same power and precision. However, the Eagle Bob Tail is still the go-to ground support equipment tow tractor.
