Aero-TV: A Moving Experience! - Best Tugs' New 'Alpha'

The Alpha Will Move Items Up To 4,500 Pounds…

Best Tugs introduced a new model at AirVenture 2017. Mark Patey, the owner of Best Tugs, told Aero-News CEO and Editor in Chief Jim Campbell that the new tug has all the digital technology that is available on their other tugs, but at a lower price.

According to the company's website, the Alpha will move items up to 4,500 pounds. Its pivoting design allows the operator to turn and move the plane without picking up and adjusting the tug. The Alpha is built with the same ingenuity and technology as what has been tried and tested on every other Best Tugs tug.

The Auto Throttle on the tug can make up to thirty changes a second in order to maintain a constant speed, even on slopes. It also has programmed codes that will trip to prevent damage to the aircraft being towed. Pulse-Width Modulation (PWM) is the technology used to give the tugs full torque and power at any speed.

Patey said that the Alpha was designed to meet the demand for a tug in the under-$3,000 range.
