The AircraftCaddy 4K/8K is no doubt the ultimate solution for moving aircraft in and out of the hangar. It makes moving aircraft quick & easy. Our caddy allows you to move your aircraft by yourself! This high-quality aircraft tug can assist in moving the aircraft over grass, gravel, or uneven pavement. Most importantly, it prevents injury, as you no longer need to push aircraft by hand. We have connections for various aircraft with wheel pants, as well as the cradle scoop option for any non-wheel pant aircraft.

The AircraftCaddy has twist grip variable speed for forward and reverse directions of 0-2 mph. You can choose to winch aircraft or scoop it up depending on the make and model. Once secured, the tug can make tight turns without exceeding any limits of the nose wheel.

"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-"

Brent Barbour

"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."

Jeff Mailing

"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."

Cary A.

"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."

Laverne Macking

"I look forward to getting plane out of the hanger and putting away is easy!"


“Easy to refer people to you/your AircraftCaddy unit when you have such a great product”

Nathan P

"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!!!"

Stewart McMillan - Task force tips

"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!"

Steve Dalrymple

"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."

Michael B - - Montana

"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)"
