Eagle eTT-16 Electric AWD Tow Tractor

Product Description

The Eagle eTT-16 electric aircraft tug is able to tow business or regional aircraft, including Boeing 737, McDonnell Douglas MD-80 and Bombardier Global Express, weighing up to 77,564 kg (171,000 lbs), depending on the weather conditions.

This low-emission tow tractor features an environmentally friendly 80V A/C brushless motor, which eliminates preventative maintenance. Brushless motors are generally more efficient and powerful than regular brushed motors.

In addition, it features four-wheel drive which provides torque to all four wheels simultaneously, increases traction and towing in all-weather condition and enhancing acceleration, as well as four-wheel steering, which improves manoeuvrability.

Front and rear wet disc brakes provide more stopping power and will require less adjustment and maintenance over time than dry disc brakes.

With a low-profile design, the operator will benefit with front and rear hitch visibility alongside with simple and efficient hitching by using the unit’s inching feature. The ergonomic operator compartment provides a comfortable and safe workspace and can accommodate the operator and up to two passengers.

The optional “smart charge” system maximises efficiency as it allows the battery to be opportunity charged (charging typically takes place anytime the tow tractor is not in use). It also minimises loss of productivity as there is no need to change batteries while the operator is working. A secondary traction battery can also be added for longevity during increased periods of use.

The zero-emission aircraft towing tractor comes standard with the following features:

  • Power-assisted steering and braking system
  • Zero-emission 80V A/C electric drive
  • Four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering
  • Front and rear inching switches
  • Front and rear wet disc brakes

The following options can be added to this aircraft tug if required:

  • Front and rear e-hitch
  • “Smart charge” system which allows the battery to be opportunity charged for increased efficiency
  • Extended battery pack
  • Operator cab
  • 2,000-hour preventative maintenance kit
  • Custom paint

The Eagle eTT-16 electric aircraft tug has the industry’s longest and strongest warranty, three years or 3,000 hours, with parts and technical support available globally.
