The Eagle eTT-12 Electric Aircraft Tug is able to tow aircraft weighing up to 58,967 kg (130,000 lbs), in normal operating conditions, with its environmentally friendly 80 A/C electric engine. This aircraft tug features an all-wheel drive (AWD), with weight distribution between the front and rear wheels for balance, push back and towing traction.
The eTT-12 Eagle Aircraft Tug comes as standard with limited slip rear axles, which prevents slippage by automatically transmitting more power to the wheel that has more traction rather than the wheel that is spinning. This feature also allows normal differential action during turns. It is an important feature since this is not available on any other brand of aircraft tug.
This low profile aircraft tug features front and rear site tunnels, providing the operator with unobstructed front and rear hitch visibility. This coupled with the advanced hitch alignment system and e-hitch positive locks make quick aircraft turns safe and routine. It also features front and rear inching switches for one-man hitching operation.
From the operator’s standpoint entry and exit to the eTT-12 Eagle Tug is quick and easy as it has the lowest stepping height and advanced ergonomic seating in its class.
