With an innovative pivoting system, the Alpha A3 is able to protect your plane like no other tug on the market. The pivoting arm eliminates the need to pick up your tug to change directions, which puts unnatural and unnecessary stress on your nose gear.
A revolutionary pivoting design in combination with a differential drive system has helped eliminate the top causes of tug induced damage by allowing your tug to rotate around your plane rather than picking up and adjusting your tug. The Alpha A2 will save your plane, and your back, from unnatrual strains and stresses.

Move more than your aircraft
Every tug comes installed with a computer software optimized for your specific plane. Nose gear damage and nose gear shimmy are completely avoidable with your Alpha.
The hybrid system allows your tug's motor to act as a generator and recharge its batteries as the tug is slowing or stopping your plane. This means your tug will last longer on a single charge and extend your batteries life.
Every Best Tugs makes up to 30 adjustments a second to maintain a constant speed, even on slopes. That means your plane will move just as smoothly coming out of the hangar as it will going in. Safe guards are also programmed in that will trip to prevent you from damaging your aircraft.
A3 will help you move your plane into the tightest corners of your hangar. Even at a slow crawl, you will have the A3's full torque and power at your disposal.
