With the help of a towing bar, our towing tractors can also push back small- and medium-sized aircraft and manoeuvre the aircraft from parking to start position.
Equipped with their own chassis and a sufficiently high weight, the Comet towing tractors provide an optimum load distribution. The permanent hydrostatic four-wheel drive ensures precise, safe push-back action.
Our product portfolio comprises tractors of category I and II which can tow aircraft of up to 150 t MTOW (pursuant to IATA AHM 955). In many cases, Comet towing tractors with their multi-functional application options for example in cargo handling are the economically sounder alternative to classical aircraft tractors that can be used for push-back jobs only.
One of the main advantages of our tractor range is the individual adjustment to the customer's requirements. Besides the extensive selection of standard equipment, there is a large number of additional features which make push-back operations even more efficient and the ground personnel's job much easier, for example special couplings or mirrors for optimum view, etc.
