Electrify your Ground Handling
and Pushback operations.

A big idea in a small format. Name: Mototok. Distinguishing features: Fully electric drive. Revolutionary in its simplicity. Extremely compact. Uniquely flexible. And very high performance. With the remote control feature of the Mototok, the operator is able to move anywhere around the aircraft to see every vantage point. The operators eyes never leave the aircraft while it is in movement.

Find a suitable solution for each of your applications.

Mototok has many years of experience in all areas of aircraft maneuvering. By closely analyzing ground operations and the resulting needs, Mototok has developed a range of machines that are ideally suited to the various tasks. What unites these machines is safety, reliability and ease of operation by ground personnel.

Mototok.
Tons of benefits.

Strong.

Maximum torque from speed 0 - the unique advantage of an all-electric drive.

Extremely powerful electric motors driven by high-performance, maintenance-free batteries with high cycling capability, regulated and controlled by two microprocessors provide enormous driving forces. The high initial torque ensures smooth acceleration, particularly at the start.

Electrically powered.

Green technology with low maintenance.

Take advantage of the benefits of all-electric propulsion: low operating costs, low maintenance, and a reduced carbon footprint on the tarmac and in the hangar. Our batteries are virtually maintenance-free and impress with their long service life. Depending on the area of application and the weight of the aircraft to be maneuvered, one battery charge lasts for up to several days without recharging – and recharge is done quickly within 3-6 hours.

The newest generation of several Mototoks can be ordered with an on-board charger that allows you to charge the Mototok at any 400V CEE industrial socket with up to 16 kW.

Remotely controlled.

High maneuverability due to freedom of movement of the operator

The remote operability of a Mototok is an advantage in all areas of ground handling. It gives an excellent all-round view, on the airfield and in the hangar. With the remote control, the operator can walk around the aircraft during manoeuvring and inspect all important and collision-prone points himself.

Safe. Fast.
And convenient.

Fully hydraulic lifting platform with automatic and sensor-controlled nose wheel fixation

Docking an aircraft is a matter of seconds: Simply press a button on the remote control to initiate the automatic loading process. The whole process is finished in about 15 seconds – ready for takeoff.

No straps, no winch, no crawling under the aircraft to fix the nose gear. All elements that clamp the nose wheel are hydraulically movable and are monitored by sensors.

 
 
 
 
 

Highly manoeuvrable. For optimal mobility in tight situations.

Because of its compact dimensions and the non-required towbar, the Mototok tug is highly manoeuvrable. It securely clamps the nose wheel and lifts it. To turn an aircraft on the spot, the Mototok only needs a circular area with a diameter roughly equal to the wingspan.

Fixing the nose gear without stress.
Fully hydraulic and sensor monitored nose wheel platform.

Due to the aircrafts design, the nose landing gear is mounted at an specific angle. Manoeuvring an aircraft with a double nose wheel with a towbarless tug therefore results in the rearing up of the outer wheel when the steering angle is strong.

Mototok balances the lifting of a nose wheel by means of the safety paddles. A gas accumulator is used to compensate the pressure on the paddles. At any steering angle, the nose wheels are thus securely and yet flexibly fixed, so that the nose gear is not subjected to any additional stress

All Mototok movements are controlled by low-maintenance hydraulics. Since mechanical and logical processes must be controlled, most Mototoks are equipped with a multitude of sensors that monitor the sequence of the respective process.

No stress for the nose gear

Oversteering Protection. Safety for the nose gear.

With the help of the optional Oversteering Protection System, excessive stress on the nose gear due to oversteering or other destructive forces is eliminated. When a defined torque is reached, the Mototok warns the operator and shuts down if the warning is not heeded. If the Mototok is equipped with our I-NPS (Intelligent Nosegear Protection System), the Mototok initiates a countersteering to eliminate the overtorque situation. The Oversteering Protection System is available for both single and double nose wheel.

This feature is recommended if unhooking the torque link of the nose gear is not intended or not possible.

Ground Handling goes digital. The Mototok cloud.

Mototok comes with a central processing unit (CPU) for features and adjustments relating to

  • Towing and braking forces
  • Oversteering protection
  • Unit diagnostics
  • Log files
  • User access

The CPU can be linked with any mobile device (smartphone, tablet or laptop) via Bluetooth, WLAN or USB and a standard internet browser (like Microsoft Edge, Apple Safari, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox). Once you are linked to the system, you are able to manage many kinds of adjustments of the Mototok.

The log in can be done via a RFCI-card and a card reader on the machine. According to the authorization level, the user is able to move the Mototok, check or adjust the settings or read out the log files.

Mototok turns exactly around the same spot as the nose gear turns itself. That results in no movement of the aircraft's wings or fuselage during turning the nose gear whilst in stopped position.

symbol-round-view

All-round view.

No knocks, no collisions, no wingwalker: Our high-tech radio remote control with worldwide safety approval on and off the airport provides 100% circumferential visibility to keep tight spots in plain sight.

More Flexibility. Advantage through a wide range of possibilities.

symbol-wheels

Capable for a wide range of Aircrafts.

Hydraulic diameter adjustment for different wheel sizes – one Mototok tug moves every corporate aircraft regardless of its size, weight and wheel diameter.

symbol-traction

Full traction. 

Mototok gives you the highest traction through its special tyres. And due to the sum of weights of the aircraft and the Mototok itself in combination with the high powered electric drive with its high torque you will master all shunting tasks even on slippery ground like on snow or ice,

symbol-battery

Plug and Charge. 

Quickest charging times in the industry and no special electrical requirements. Move airplanes up to 2-3 days (depending on workload) without recharging. With our pushback machines you can manage up to 25 pushbacks with one battery charge. And with Mototok's built in ground power unit (24/28V) in most of our models you can start up the aircraft engines without using a second unit.

This is what our customers say. Mototok convinces.

Our Mototok is the second best piece of equipment in the hangar (the airplane is first)! The ease of operation and the ability for one person to safely maneuver our plane in and out of our hangar because of the industrial remote control wing walker feature is unbeatable. This is a quality machine, very reliable.

Steve Nelson, Aviation Manager & Chief Pilot, TLS Aviation LLC

I didn't need to build another hangar to increase my revenue, purchasing the Mototok did that for me.

Karl Danielson, Vice President Aviation, Dragon Leasing

The Mototok has been an invaluable tool in our FBO business. In addition to creating more space in our hangar which leads to the increase in revenue, it has also increased our efficiency in quick turns and staging of aircraft. Usually pilots video the Mototok moving their aircraft and are amazed at its capabilities. It’s absolutely been a great buy for us!
