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.

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.
