The Eagle XL-30 aircraft pushback tractor features a towing capacity of 136,078 kg (300,000 lbs), being able to move short to medium-range, narrow-body aircraft such as the Boeing 737 or the Airbus A320 family, in all surface conditions.
Its four-wheel drive characteristic improves traction and control in dangerous driving conditions, including snow and rain, by engaging both sets of wheels. This aircraft tug also provides versatility by enabling the operator with the option to switch from four-wheel steering or crab steering. The latter provides extra flexibility in tight corners and limited spaces as it allows the aircraft pushback tractor to move sideways by turning the wheels in the same direction.
This low-profile tow tractor allows the operator to handle the aircraft in a safe and efficient way, featuring an ergonomic operator compartment and built-in safety instruments and features, including a hot-shift transmission protection, low oil or high temperature shutdown system, emergency brake override protection and built-in side marker and strobe lighting.
Equipped with a Tier 4i diesel engine, this aircraft tug meets the latest emission standards by possessing a sophisticated engine control system, which allows the engine to maintain combustion efficiency and minimise emissions.
The Deutz TCD Interim diesel engine features a rated output of 89 kW (120 HP) at 2800 rpm and a capacity of 114 litres (30 gallons). It comes complete with a heavy-duty air cleaner, capable of handling severe environments, and a dry replacement element.
