Remote Control Steering & LIfting
Tiger Tug has been designed with the customer in mind. With our unique
remote control system you can maneuver your helicopter in tight hangar spaces
effortlessly while controlling it from any vantage point. No longer do you need to
have an extra person watch for hangar wall incursions. You, the operator can
now see all as you position your helicopter into its parking location!
True Scissor Lift Capability
When you position your Tiger Tug under the helicopter with the saddles lined up,
this alignment stays that way as you now raise the supports to safely nest into the
cross tubes. No need to guess where the saddles will end up after they are raised.
This avoids that possible damage to the belly skin that can happen by just missing
the cross tubes! With our remote control system, you are right there watching the lift
take place. It is not necessary to walk back and find the raise switch and lose the
ability to see if the saddles end up in the correct place.
Tiger Tug exclusively uses the Heli-Saddle supports, which provides the safest
non-marring system on the market to protect your valuable investment. Our patent
pending rail and support system provides a safe and efficient way of cradling your
helicopter for transporting. The Tiger Tug uses solid rubber drive tires. No more
having to remove and repair multiple hard to get at pneumatic tires. The optional
equipment GPU system has a built-in safety feature for disconnecting the GPU
cables automatically if the GPU wasn't removed prior to taking off. Built-in smart
charger that monitors and charges each deep cycle battery independently according
to its needs. Tough powder coated frame resists rust and corrosion and stays
looking new for years. Custom color and graphics packages are available
