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 TWIN.

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.

Safety First

Thanks to the hydraulic nose wheel paddles Mototok holds the nose gear in a safe and fixed position. This feature prevents effectively the nose gear from slipping out of the nose wheel opening of the Mototok. So a „Brakeman“ in the cockpit who stops the aircraft in this case is not necessary. 

Turning Point

A nosewheel is basically offset in order to remain safely on track during take-off and landing. Due to this, ground position point A is not identical with construction related axis B on the landing gear.

Turning Point

Due to this design-related inclination of the nose wheel suspension, the nose wheel tilts sideways during a rotation of the Mototok. The hydraulic safety paddles automatically compensate this and gently fixes always the nose wheel securely in position.

These safety features, combined with the ease and convenient usage, distinguish the Mototok from its competitors.

Minimum space requirement

Compared to other towing principles and towing systems Mototok excels in every discipline and convinces with minimal space requirements for maneuvering. This shows the following comparison:

Conventional tow tractor with a tow bar

Conventional tow tractor with a tow bar

Maneuvering with a towbar means “steering by moving“. Turning the nose gear and moving the aircraft are two inseparable motions when using a tow bar. Turning the nose wheel is only possible when the aircraft is moved backwards or forwards. The aircraft has to be moved several metres for the nose gear to turn and move the aircraft into another direction. This in turn increases the space needed for extensive manoeuvering.

  • Many different tow bars have to be stored for different types of aircraft
  • High risk of accidents and damage of the aircraft
  • Minimum second person as a „wing walker“ needed because the driver has no overview from his position
  • High maintenance level due to combustion engine

Other towbarless tugs

Other towbarless tugs

This principle means also “steering by moving“. The space requirement for maneuvering is approximately the same as with using a tow bar.

  • Winches and straps for fixation often needed
  • Minimum second person as a „wing walker“ needed because the driver has no overview from his position
  • The vehicles have big dimensions and need a lot of parking space

Other towbarless tugs

Tugs with a rotary table

This type of tug loads the nose gear on a rotary table.

  • Loads only from the left or right side of the aircraft – not directly from the front or the rear
  • No automatic fixation of the nose gear – there is no technical way to route hydraulic power onto the free rotatable platform
  • Undefined behavior of the free rotary table whilst pushing the aircraft. During pushing, the rotaring table has to be fixed in position. So the assumed advantage of an oversteering protection thanks to the free rotation of the table is nullified.

Other towbarless tugs

Moving an aircraft the innovative way – with Mototok!

Manouevering with Mototok is the easiest by far. The fuselage and wingtips remain in position whilst turning the nose gear on the spot for manoeuvering. With Mototok both turning the nose gear and moving the aircraft are two completely different movements – the deciding advantage of the Mototok tug sytem. The result is a minimum requirement of space whilst shunting the aircraft. This example shows that turning an aircraft by 90° reduces manoevering space to a circle.

  • Best overall sight thanks to remote controlled maneuverings
  • No winches, no straps, automatic convenient and automatic quick nose gear loading
  • Low maintenance thanks to full electric drive
  • Lowest space requirement when pushing or pulling the aircraft
  • Safe thanks to oversteering protection
 
 

Turning on the spot for minimal space requirements

Convenient Usage

Loading the nose gear is as simple as tapping a button on the remote.

Docking takes a matter of seconds from the rear or front of the nose wheel. Simply drive the Mototok up to the nose wheel. The wheel is then hydraulically fixed firmly in position and raised – ready for take off! All this with no awkward strap, no inconvenient winch. No bolts or tools are required.

  • Radio remote controlled operating under an industrial frequency code approved for airports
  • Automatic connection to the aircraft‘s nose wheel with one tap on a button of the remote
  • No straps, no winch, no tools required
 
 

Convenient usage: Docking takes a matter of seconds

Great choice – depending on your needs
