LEKTRO unveils new snow plow attachment for AP88 and AP89 series

LEKTRO has successfully completed winter testing of its new AP8850SDA-H hybrid towbarless aircraft tug, as well as produced the first commercial snow plow attachment for a towbarless tug ever. Testing was conducted at several locations for the new hybrid tug, which was unveiled for the first time at the NBAA 2015 static display, where it positioned many of the aircraft on display. The winter testing was conducted in Aspen, Colorado (ASE) and proved itself very capable of handling aircraft of various sizes in snowy and wintery conditions.

While conducting the hybrid’s winter trials, LEKTRO had heard several of their customers note that airport contractors can often take quite a while to reach FBOs and clear the ramp. They couldn’t justify getting their own snow clearing equipment, but it would be nice to utilize the equipment they already had. The new AP88/89 Series Snow Plow Attachment brings a new realm of versatility to their towbarless aircraft tugs. Now, users no longer have to wait for a contractor to clear their ramp–they can get a start on it with their LEKTRO. Check out the video below!
