Lindys 35K aircraft tow tractors push, pull and maneuver airplanes up to 35,000 lbs in an FBO or hangar for the airplane industry. Our airplane movers come with either a rigid mount wheel guide or an easy-on roller cradle that slides effortlessly under the nose wheel of any airplane. Once the tire of the aircraft is loaded in the cradle of the aircraft tow tractor, the cradle has a 5th wheel style turning that allows our aircraft tow tractor to turn a full 180 degrees underneath the wheel of the aircraft without turning the wheel or steering mechanism of your aircraft. The lever handle and cable system on our airplane movers locks and releases the easy-on cradle when loading and unloading aircraft. Or the rigid mount wheel guide works great aircraft with wheel pants.
Lindy's Aircraft Tow Tractor Operations»
After Lindy's Aircraft Tow has secured the nose wheel of the aircraft safely in the wheel cradle on the tow tractor, one operator can easily maneuver aircraft in tightly stacked airplane hangars or when staging on an airport ramp. Our airplane movers have a smooth acceleration and braking system resulting from variable speed twist grip handlebars with forward and reverse 0-2 mph operations that eliminates the jerkiness found in gas powered aircraft tow tractors. Plus, the quietness of the electric motor allows the operator to safely manipulate their airplane without the loud, aggravating, unsafe noise that goes with operating a combustion engine aircraft tow.
