Loves that it is a nice/industrial unit- not motor on stick
He got the unit- he said it was HUGE- way bigger than he thought it was going to be but he LOVES it.. Loves that it is a nice/industrial unit- not motor on stick- he's been running his plane around for just fun- Loves it, really happy with our product and service-
...it is absolutely awesome
We have been using the tug for about 8 months now and it is absolutely awesome. I kick myself every time I use it for being so stupid to have used the tractor for 11 years!!!
The aircraft caddy works great!
The aircraft caddy works great! I am really impressed by the quality and by the service I have received from your company. Having lived 7 years in Rochester, I am very familiar with the Minnesota work ethic so this does not surprise me at all! Thanks again!
It is definitely one of the best purchases I’ve made since owning an airplane.
I’ve had my 4K Jr. aircraft caddy for 3 years. It has been 100% reliable. Overall, I could not be more pleased with my Caddy. It has taken all of the work out of moving my airplane. It does it quietly, unobtrusively, and easily. It is definitely one of the best purchases I’ve made since owning an airplane.
My husband loves it
Yes we have opened it up. My husband loves it, he took his plane out of the hanger and pulled it to have gas put in he said that it pulls his plane great and was very easy to use. I have to say he wasn't too sure when he first got it because of the size and weight of the unit, but once he used it he is loving it. Thanks again for working with me to set him up with the Aircraft caddy unit.
Easy to refer people to you

...bought about a year ago and just loves his unit
He just wanted to let us know that we have an awesome product- He bought about a year ago and just loves his unit. He said he has used a variety of things from tractors, vehicles, gasoline tuggers in past and ours is perfect- moving his KingAir. (AircraftCaddy 15K)
I am the envy of the airport
This thing is worth every penny. I am the envy of the airport and even lent it to my hanger neighbor yesterday to get his twin in.
Aircraft Tow Tractor Applications
One unique feature on the aircraft tow tractor, AircraftCaddy R/W (Rider/Walkie) is the riding platform and handle bar that allows an operator to either ride-on when traveling greater distances, or walk-along with to maneuver the AircraftCaddy and aircraft in and out of tight areas in a crowded hangar. This versatility eliminates the need for multiple tractors and gives the operator greater flexibility.
It’s designed for one person to safely and easily maneuver and tow aircraft in and out of tight spaces in hangars and also for towing aircraft longer distances like pre-flight staging on a runway, ramp or refueling.
The AircraftCaddy R/W tow tractor has a smooth acceleration and braking systems that eliminate the rough starting and stopping of gas powered clutching systems. Also the quietness of the tows electric motors allows an operator to manipulate an aircraft while having the full use of sound, site, touch and feel.
