We Know Pushback Tractors for When It Comes Time to Haul One!

Pushback tractors are designed specifically to fit underneath of the nose of an airplane, securely maneuvering the plane through the airport either to a hanger for repair and maintenance or to different gates to pick up passengers. While many planes are capable of moving themselves along the ground, the reverse thrust or powerback can be damaging to nearby buildings or the engine of the plane itself.

Pushback tugs help pilots safely move planes along the ground, using a bypass pin. When these tugs are moved from airport to airport, keeping them safe and intact is
critical to their ability to safely move. We make sure that your equipment moves from
airport to airport without damage.

How To Ship an Airport Pushback

Shipping an airline pushback tug is a job for experts. Although these trucks are lighter than most equipment we ship, it's important to protect them during transport, especially the pins that attach to airport jets, for safety. Typically, airport tugs ship on step-deck trailers and can be transported without an escort convoy.

Expert drivers are needed to navigate through the complicated road ways leading to airports safely. The expert logisticians at Heavy Haulers can take care of necessary paperwork to get your pushback tug safely through airport security.
