GSA Advantage!

Regardless of the type or weight class of your aircraft, with the nosewheel cradled at the front of the tug, LEKTRO eliminates all but one pivot point. This reduces turn limit damage, virtually eliminates jackknifing and gives the LEKTRO its renowned maneuverability. Greater control, greater confidence, greater profits. In many cases, the length of a LEKTRO aircraft pushback tractor is less than the length of a towbar alone. This gives operators greater control in confined areas and allows for tighter hangar stacking capabilities, easily maximizing your hangar's capacity and increasing your return on investment. The LEKTRO towbarless aircraft towing vehicle can also be used to raise the nose of a plane, dropping the tail of the aircraft and moving it into a hangar that would otherwise be too small.

Versatility on wheels
Known as the Swiss Army knife of the flightline, the LEKTRO is one versatile aircraft tug. With a built-in ground power unit (GPU), your LEKTRO can start everything from single engine trainers to turbine-powered aircraft. It is perfect for intermittent and light duty electrical backup. Ask our sales force about options for step ladders, our handy cargo deck for tools, storage space for supplies or luggage.

The all-weather tug
Without a carburetor and ignition system, the LEKTRO starts up easily in coldweather. Its limited slip differential, traction tires and chains give it excellent handling under a variety of winter ramp conditions. With the cradle safely holding the plane's front wheel, slippage in snow or on ice is eliminated. You can witness our LEKTROs on the service line in severe winter climates, such as you will find at O'Hare Airport in Chicago, Illinois or JFK in New York.

Built to last
Made with all-steel construction and the highest quality components available, each LEKTRO is as much state-of-the-art as it is work of art. We are constantly researching ways to improve our LEKTROs. We have our own certification equipment to continually increase our LEKTRO performance and modify our product to better serve industry needs.

LEKTRO towing capacity ranges from single engine trainers to Boeing 737 (180,000 lbs.) The next model currently in design will be capable of handling up to 250,000 lbs.

There are over 4,000 LEKTROs in operation, working in almost every industrialized country in the world. And, at LEKTRO, we maintain customer records and parts information on every LEKTRO ever sold.
