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.

Advanatages

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
