The Eagle TT-4 aircraft tow tractor is ideal for moving small to mid-size corporate aircraft and military helicopters, such as the Cessna Citation family, Hawkers, Learjet, among others weighing up to 24,948 kg (55,000 lbs). Capabilities vary depending on surface and weather conditions.
When surface conditions are wet, the maximum towing capacity is 24,948 kg (55,000 lbs). When towing in snow, the maximum towing capacity is 13,608 kg (30,000 lbs).
With the choice of a gas, diesel or LPG engine, all compliant with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emission standards, this aircraft tug offers the opportunity for the buyer to choose which engine is the most appropriate for the required work. The torque, fuel tank capacity and service weight will vary depending on the type of engine chosen.
In addition, maintenance and service costs of a diesel tug are traditionally lower than gas-powered tractors. LPG powered tugs are quieter in use than the diesel alternatives and their exhaust fumes are less offensive as well.
With a low-profile design, ergonomic operator workspace and front and rear hitch sight tunnels, this unit provides the operator with a safe and efficient method of handling the aircraft. It comes standard with a power-assisted steering and braking system, front and rear brakes, side and top engine access and low oil and high temperature shutdown system. Its mid-operator design allows the operator to “slide-in and slide-out” safely and quickly.
