The MOTOTOK SPACER is a fully electric, wireless transmission controlled, heavy duty wing walker towbarless pushback tug which loads and unloads the nose wheel automatically. It is equipped with a gimbal-mounted nose gear platform with hydraulic cylinders for compensating for the tilt of the nose gear while turning. Like every MOTOTOK application, it turns on the ground at the same point as the nose gear, avoiding shunting of the aircraft while in a stopped position. Because of the shallow design and the microprocessor control of the two electric hub drives, the aircraft can be positioned even in the tightest of spaces.
