Tiger Tugs announces the introduction of their new model 8.0B helicopter transporter. The new Tiger Tug Model 8.0B is specifically designed for the Bell 429. Special outrigger arms reach out and down to gently lift the 429 using the ground handling wheel bolts. WithÂ our unique wireless remote control system,Â you can maneuver your helicopter in tight hangar spaces effortlessly,Â while controlling it from any vantage point. TheÂ Tiger TugÂ system eliminates theÂ need to have an extra personÂ watch for hangar incursions. The model 8 is designed to lift helicopters weighing up to 8,000 lbs.
Tiger Tug has also developed a version of the model 8.0 especially for the Armyâ€™s LUH 72 helicopter. The frame is designed to provide safe clearance for the IR camera ball under the nose.
