The JP75SC SOFTCAPTURE® tug is equipped with the patented SOFTCAPTURE® cradle which allows the tug operator to safely capture aircraft from the driver’s seat without the use of straps on the strut or any part of the nose landing gear. This saves time and money by allowing you to move aircraft without getting off the tug. The SOFTCAPTURE® mechanism eliminates the negative "strap capture" events so common when the strap is wrapped around the strut. The unit is designed to fit most common dual nose-wheel aircraft.

Standard Features:
  • Connect to the aircraft nose landing gear from the driver's cockpit or at the fender next to the aircraft nose landing gear (NLG)
  • All contact is made on the aircraft NLG tires only, no contact or straps on the oleo strut or NLG
  • Designed to fit most common dual nose-wheel aircraft
  • JP75SC - Two - 8 HP continuous duty drive motors coupled directly to brake/torque hub results in fewer moving parts (no chains)
  • Proportional drive with steering position sensor
  • Battery charge indicator with hourmeter
  • Fully automated, multi-tap battery charger
  • 16 - 6 volt batteries
  • Rear suspension system compensates for uneven ramp surface, dampens transmitted vibration for passengers, crew and operator
  • Power steering
  • Heavy duty long life torque hubs
  • Regenerative dynamic motor braking for long battery life and very smooth deceleration
  • Redundant hydraulic service foot brake
  • Automatic parking brake
  • Solid rubber tires
  • 10 micron hydraulic system filtration
  • Covered storage compartments with rubberized coating on aluminum diamond deck cover
  • Headlights and rear facing lights
  • Strobe light and side marker lights
  • Horn
  • Finish: Durable Powder Coat Tronair Blue
  • Custom colors and graphics (customer logo) available

Safety Features:
  • Throttle speed limit safety switch reduces unit speed when approaching the aircraft with cradle down
  • Forward motion safety switch disengages the throttle when the forward motion safety bar contacts the aircraft nose tire, this prevents the operator from pushing on the nose tire
  • The gate lock and cradle locator safety switch locates the cradle and stops the "cradle down" movement when the cradle is lowered to the ground, the gate lock prevents "cradle open" movement when the cradle is up
  • The parking brake release safety switch allows the unit to "roll" during the capture so the aircraft doesn't move, the hydraulic foot brake remains functional at all times
  • JP75SC - Controlled acceleration and deceleration joystick operated throttle
  • Emergency stop
  • Fire extinguisher
