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.
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.
Easy to refer people to you

Really an awesome machine... I will recommend this unit to others
Yes , the caddy arrived and I already have it up and running. I love it. Really an awesome machine. Thanks for getting my caddy built and shipped promptly. I will recommend this unit to others.
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 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!!!
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.
The only regret is I wished I had bought it years ago.
I look forward to getting plane out of the hanger and putting away is easy!
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-
...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)
Aircraft Tow Applications
The Lindbergh Aircraft Tow is no doubt the ultimate solution for moving aircraft’s in and out of hangars. They make moving aircraft so easy that you do not need to hire many employees to get the job done, enabling you to save on labor costs. High quality new and used AircraftCaddy Aircraft Tows come with the necessary features to minimize the effects of various hazards that are found in an airfield, and they can help you keep your aircraft in a good condition.
While aircraft tugs make it a lot less physically demanding for you to move an aircraft, it still requires manual effort. You have to pull or push the plane to the desired location. Remote controlled aircraft tugs allow you to move and maneuver your aircraft by just pressing a few buttons. Most importantly, it gives you the freedom to walk around the airplane when it is being towed, enabling you to make sure that it will not come into contact with obstacles that are in its way. By moving your aircraft with a remote control, you do not need to walk back and forth or have another person stand behind the plane to check the stopping distance.
Lindbergh Aircraft Tug Co. offers a remote control option with all its tugs. The remote control comes with slow forward and backward, and emergency stopping functions to minimize the risk of bump and collision damage.
