Small airports must operate differently than the more sprawling international airports. Instead of handling large cargo planes or servicing massive 747s with dozens of passangers, they cater to lightweight craft that are often privately owned. Traffic is also much less demanding, so the airfield's teams can devote more time to each visitor. Most pertinently, the relative lightness of the planes means that heavy-duty equipment is not as necessary for the airfield.

Manual aircraft tugs are substantially smaller and weaker than the kind used at international airports. Their defining feature, though, is their manual nature. They attach to the front wheel of a light aircraft, and they have a handle that you can use to pull everything. The clever design allows for a transfer of force that makes moving aircraft much easier with these devices than pulling them with your bare hands.

When you need a high-quality manual aircraft tug, Powertow has your back. The creations in our collection are all just strong enough to haul the kind of aircraft that typically stop at small airports. Some can carry as many as 15,000 pounds. They are also easy and safe to attach and handle, making them more convenient for yourself and your staff. Explore our selection today.
