Pushback tugs –
Electrify your
Ground Handling!

Double Nose Wheel up to 95t

Eliminate the Waiting Time for a conventional Pushback Tug!

See, what British Airways and Tech Insider say about the innovative way of pushing back aircraft!

British Airways is using 28 Mototok SPACER 8600 to push back airplanes. Using this new electric robot has resulted in a 54% reduction in delays at Heathrow Airport. It has also reduced emissions and is surprisingly easy to maneuver.

See, what Tech Insider says about the innovative way of pushing back aircraft with the SPACER 8600 and the SPACER 195.

Reduce the average time of waiting for pushing back the aircraft!
Every minute of waiting for the pushback tug costs money. What, if the access time to a pushback tug tends towards immediately?

No governmental driving license required.
Only specialized and authorized staff is permitted to push back aircraft with a conventional pushback tug. What, if everybody of the staff would have the permission to pushback the aircraft?

Get access to a Mototok pushback tug immediately

Get access to a pushback tug immediately!
Our concept is to provide up to three boarding bridges with an electrical Mototok tug. Push back the aircraft just in time.

Easy to Use

The loading and operating process is carried out with the utmost security and precision. In addition, it runs fully automatically on many models such as the Spacer.

Operating Procedure 1

The engaging procedure can be started automatically by pressing just one button on the remote control.

Operating Procedure 2

Drive the Mototok with opened hydraulical door and lowered platform towards the nose wheel of the aircraft until the nose wheel touches the sliding table. Then press the start-button on the remote control.

Operating Procedure 3

The hydraulical door closes. If necessary the sliding table is adjustable for fitting smaller nose wheels.

Operating Procedure 4

The sliding table presses the nose wheel towards the closed hydraulical door until a specified pressure is reached.

Operating Procedure 5

The platform lifts up and raises the nose wheel.

Operating Procedure 6

The securing paddles lowers down and clamps the nose wheel gently and safely – ready for moving the aircraft. The whole procedure takes 10-15 seconds only.

The Mototok central processing unit: Mototok goes digital!

The Mototok Central Processing Unit

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

  • Towing and braking forces
  • Oversteering protection and counter steering
  • Voice announcements
  • 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, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Apple Safari, Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox).

Mototok goes Digital

Log in to the system

The quickest log in can be done via a RFCI-card and an appropriate 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.

Safety first:
I-OPS – Intelligent Oversteering Protection System

Oversteering Protection

Achieve more safety in your daily operation: Intelligent Oversteering Protection System (I-OPS) with Auto Countersteering Function is our newest contribution to prevent damages on the nose gear whilst shunting and pushback operations. Equipped with several sensors which measures the forces and torques on the nose gear, Mototoks counter steer algorithm commences, when the torque reaches a set limit. Damages of the sensitive nose gear is hereby impossible.

The difference to conventional oversteering protection systems

With I-OPS oversteering is nearly impossible. I-OPS takes action actively and not only with a simple alarm or when it is too late.

How this works

The intelligent oversteering control of the Mototok prohibits an oversteering incident by intelligent torque measurement and auto counter steer. When the measured torque is reaching a critical value of the set torque limit, a counter steer operation will be performed immediately.

  • Intuitive and easy handling
  • Information for operators over the display of the Mototok and over electronic speech synthesis with the wireless headset
  • Information for technicians over Mototok APP with Laptop or tablet
  • mergency release of the aircraft in less than a minute

The forces and torques acting on the nosegear are measured by several weighing cells. Mototok's Intelligent Oversteer Protection System (I-OPS) prevents too high torques and initiates a counter steer action whilst either pulling or pushing the aircraft.
