VET towing tractors have a key role in airports, they are used for transport of equipment such as passenger stairs, cargo loaders, air starters, cleaning/service equipment and most often as tow tractors for towing multiple trailers with baggage.
These tractors can also be used as push-back tractor for smaller airplanes (with appropriate equipment).
Airport are most often application but this vehicle type can be wherever high power electric vehicle is required.


Self-supported chassis is built for front and back towing, chassis is mostly built from 10mm steel plates which ensures rigidity and harsh application suitability.
High powered drive axle with high steering angle on front axle allows extremely small turning radius for size of this vehicle.
Driver cabin accommodates driver and co-driver, seats are equipped with suspension, steering wheel is tilt and height adjustable. Loading area is positioned behind cabin for transport of small amounts of baggage or appropriate equipment.

Electric drive:

Use of electric vehicles is becoming a must have, environment protection and use of vehicles in enclosed areas are main points for decision to go electric.
Low noise transaxle with coaxial motor, multiple wet disc brakes, high torque and speed is a basis for this vehicle.

Mode of operation:

These vehicles are exposed to harsh application, especially during tourist seasons when airport capacity is on the limit, reliable equipment is a must have to ensure non-issue operation at worst case scenarios.


We have taken special attention on manoeuvring capabilities, turning in small spaces is enabled with high visibility cabin, hydraulic steering, high turning angle, and light and accurate steering wheel.
