Electric Airplane Tug Applications

The AircraftCaddy 4K. Jr. Electric Airplane Tug is specially developed for moving small planes with or without wheel pants that weigh up to 4,000 pounds. It is a battery-operated tug with a heavy-duty steel frame, and it can be easily operated by just one person.

The AircraftCaddy 4K Jr. moves an airplane carefully at the speed of 0-2 mph. Being a walk-behind tug, it gives the operator better control when maneuvering the aircraft; therefore, reducing the risk of accidents. Its smooth acceleration and braking systems ensure that the plane will not experience rough starting or stopping. Also, its ergonomic design and quiet electric motor reduce the risk of physical injuries and hearing impairment, and make it easier for the operator to fully concentrate on the task of moving the 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."

Cary A.

"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

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

Jeff Mailing

"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

"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

"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)"

Tim Robertson

"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

“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!!!"
