Product Category

LEKTRO 86 tow tractors are designed to tow aircraft with a MTOW up to 18,143 kg (40,000 lbs), making them ideal for towing many single-engine aircraft up through many corporate jets.  Aircraft nose wheels are secured with the patented universal nose gear lift cradle and soft nylon strap, which eliminates tow bars and is far less complex than hard capture systems common on most towbarless tractors.  All electric power and a very tight turning radius makes the LEKTRO 86 the ideal tow tractor for tight hangar aircraft positioning and moving aircraft on congested flight lines.  Perfect for FBOs and other general aviation operations.
