I have one of these and love it!! I use it for my 182T and it works great and I can tow my plane over 100 yards and back a few times. It twists and turns in the middle for ease of use. Much better than others without the swivel.

Fantastic little tug! Moves my E55 fully loaded with no problem at all and the swivel joint makes turning out of the hanger a breeze! This thing is built to last for sure and is great for moving the jet ski trailer after installing a ball on the rail behind the jaws. Highly recommend to anyone needing a tug!

I would definitely suggest it! I love how I can turn my plane without having to lift tug, worth the money.

This little tug is a BEAST. Worth every penny and no back breaking efforts are needed to operate it.

not enough power, nor is the tug heavy enough for ease of use. Not a recommended for 3550lb aircraft (c182)
