Product Category

LEKTRO 89 tow tractors are designed to tow aircraft with a MTOW up to127,005 kg (280,000 lbs), making them ideal for pushbacks and towing narrow body aircraft including the B757 and regional aircraft.  Aircraft nose gear are secured with a torque sensing turntable cradle and soft nylon strap, which eliminates tow bars and is far less complex and easier to maintain than hard capture systems common on most towbarless tractors.  Electric power and a tight turning radius makes the LEKTRO 89 the preferred tow tractor for airline push back operations.  Diesel/electric hybrid options available for extended use applications.
