Only Mototok Aircraft Tugs generate more Space in Your Hangar and on the Apron

More Safety, More Space, More Revenue!

100 % visual control around the aircraft. No knocks. No collisions. No towbars. And optimum use of limited space! Only mototok aircraft tugs are capable of manoevering a plane’s nose a few millimetres away from a hangar wall and, above all, quickly and efficiently prepare all other aircraft or helicopters in the hangar for their next duties.

Pushback capabilities included

Need a combination of an aircraft tug that is excellent for operation both inside and outside the hangar and a pushback tug that is both compact and powerful? Here you are! Watch this video and read more here …
