You Ask. We Help. Your FAQs answered for the JP30L

Like the JP30, the JP30L Electric Tug was designed to provide one of the most efficient and economical methods of moving aircraft. This towbarless tug was designed with a 3 foot extended deck to provide a longer reach for use on aircraft with setback nose gears, like the Dassault Falcon aircraft. The added length allows for a second set of batteries which makes the endurance of the JP30L a favorite among towbarless tug operators everywhere.

JP30L Electric Aircraft Tug Video Overview:

You Ask. We Help. Your FAQs.

What is the towing capacity on the pintle hitch?
The draw bar pull on the pintle hitch will be limited by the available traction since there will presumably be no load in the cradle. There is not a published value but it will be under 3000 lbs DBP.

The unit works great moving our C680 plus! We also saved around $10K for getting this unit instead of a Lektro 8700 towbarless aircraft tug.
We have been using the tug more than our old one. The battery stays charged and it is more reliable. This is a plus for us when we are have huge aircraft coming in on a daily basis. CGSE has gone up and beyond to make sure that we are happy and everything is working great! Overall, it runs great and we are happy!!!
