Helicopter Tug Applications

The HelicopterCaddy electric helicopter tugs are designed specifically to push, pull and tow helicopters up to 15,000 lbs for ground handling towing applications . Our lightweight helicopter tugs are designed for towing a Robinson Helicopter by one person on airport tarmac or rough terrain. The helicopter tugs smooth acceleration allows the helicopter dolly to slowly inch under the helicopter tow pin for positioning the lift kit. The HelicopterCaddy tugs lift kit raises the nose of the helicopter for better traction over humps, inclines and slippery conditions. The helicopter tow turns up to 180 degrees under the helicopter for easy maneuvering.

When the helicopter tractors are safely secured to the helicopter tow pin , one operator can easily maneuver the helicopter. Our helicopter tow carts have a smooth acceleration and braking system with forward and reverse 0-3 mph that eliminates jerkiness. The Robinson tow is powered by three 36V 85 amp batteries while the rotor tugs built-in charger makes recharging easy at the end of the day, or any time the helicopter tow cart is not in use.

"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

"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 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!"


"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 , 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

"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

"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.

"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-"
