The TUG Model TMD-180 air start units are designed from a clean sheet of paper, these units offer lower operating costs and decreased environmental impact.

One of the many standard features of the TMD-180 air start units is the dual-pressure regulators with an "On Demand" automatic engine throttle control system. The operator simply selects either the air start or the air packs mode and the control system automatically adjusts the pressure and throttle settings. Benefits of the "On Demand " system include fuel economy, decreased maintenance, and noise control.

Safety, reliability, and maintainability are key ingredients of our design; decades of experience with both commercial and military GSE provide practical and efficient products. Standard features such as large access doors, remote lube oil drains, and maintenance-free batteries ensure ease of service. These exceptional features, combined with our famous worldwide parts and support make the TMD-180 air start units the best choice for your operations.
