Eagle Tugs

The compact low-profile diesel Eagle TT-12 AWD is designed specifically for large regional, corporate, and military aircraft. The All Wheel Drive (AWD) power train provides superior traction and performance in all weather conditions. The TT-12's low profile design, all wheel drive (AWD), hitch-sight tunnels, and standard power steering and braking make it the most functional aircraft tug for regional airlines, corporate flight departments, and fixed base operators (FBOs).

  • Unparalleled reliability and factory-direct service and support is the Eagle Tugs advantage.

You Ask. We Help. Your FAQs.

Have a question? Just ask us! We would be glad to help.

Is there a cab option for this tug?
There is a cab option that can be added on the TT-12. It is heated with an overhead adjustable vent and fan. It also was a wiper. The door can be removed with just six bolts for summer ventilation and both side windows open.

There are a couple negatives about a cab. The tractor will not be able to drive under wings, and the operator is less engaged with the environment.

If you do want the cab option quoted, please advise at the time of requesting a quote.

Sell or Trade-In

We can purchase your used TT-12 (or similar GSE items like it) and apply it as a credit for new GSE, or buy it outright directly.

We have only had the tug for a short time but it works as advertised. No issues at this time. We use our tug to move a wide array of aircraft. When the tug arrived CGSE arranged for a flat bed tow truck to be here to unload it from the tractor trailer.
It is awesome piece of equipment. It performs much better than our old tug. We recently upgraded our fleet with Global express and Gulfstream 450's, it is much safer with our new TT-12 compared to our old TT-8.
The Eagle TT-12 is a big improvement over our older TT-8. The TT-8 wasn't able to handle the larger aircraft. The TT-12 moves the Gulfstreams and Globals with ease. Not only does it move them with ease but you have the confidence of knowing you are in control now and not the aircraft. Safety is always a priority and using the TT-12 gives you that extra edge of safety for moving the larger aircraft.
