    Rating 40 EZ for 8GCBC Scout
    Found the Scout with recommended tire pressure was at my limit to manually move it. The EZ 40 with Scott Tailwheel adapter is a good fit keeping the EZ level when attached. Was not confident with the 1/4" engagement of the axle bolt head because it is possible to disengage and then risk damage. This is not directly a PowerTow responsibility but I provided both PowerTow and Alaskan Bush Wheel how the bolt head can be extended an additional 1/2" by TIG welding a standard steel hex nut extension bored for grease chuck clearance. That solution works well. The unit has adequate traction and power but requires downforce on the handle to launch and to climb over the 3/8" higher hanger floor. Overall easy to start, smooth clutch and good build quality. I agree with the 5 star but think PT should take responsibility with ABW for the issue with the short axle bolt engagement and risk of aircraft damage in the pushing direction.

    Whoopee, my struggle is over! For years, I've hassled with pushing my 172 up a slight incline of crumbling asphalt, over a small threshhold bump and into my hangar. I couldn't see whether it was lined up because I had to bend over to get traction, usually resulting in multiple "missed approaches." With snow or ice on the ramp, forget it. The 40EZ solves all those problems. It gives me excellent control of speed and direction, I can stand up straight and see the tail, and traction is not a problem. I considered all of the available tow products, and I'm glad I picked the PowerTow. Unpacking and assembly took about an hour, everything fit perfectly, and the engine started on the first pull. I spent a while testing and breaking in the clutch belt, per the instructions, until it would idle without moving. Hookup is easy. The only difficulty is hooking up when the nose wheel is angled, but it's no biggie, just angle the 40EZ to match. I didn't get the casters, but don't need them. Haven't tried the snow chains yet. Great product, worth the money.
