Ground-support equipment manufacturer Lektro sold the first of its new AP8350 towbarless tugs to Monticello Air, Napa, Calif., which will use it to tow an Adam A500 piston twin. The AP8350 is designed for sub-10,000-pound airplanes like very light jets, according to Lektro, but not for heavy-duty users like FBOs or large fleet operators. Specifications include a two-horsepower 36-volt traction motor, electronic speed control, built-in 12/24/30-volt GPU, battery charger, deadman foot-operated parking brake and optional four-step ladder that attaches to the operator’s back rest. Like many Lektro tugs, the AP8350 uses the company’s patented universal nose gear lift cradle, which can raise single- and
dual-wheel nose landing gears.
