GSA Advantage!

Tows up to 85,000 pounds (38,555kg)

The added 36 inch extension of the AP8750C-ALM adds the capability to maneuver around the stabilator of the Blackhawk while towing as well as providing more clearance between the operator and aircraft nose on aircraft such as the A-10 or Eurofighter. The towing capabilities of the smaller Lektro tugs are maintained. The built in stepladder allows access to over wing or higher parts of the aircraft saving extra trips to the hangar.
