1) The stated towing capacity is valid for towing on normal ground conditions without an incline of more than 1 %.

2) Depends on the ordered drive motor and the design of the hydraulic system

3) This prevents the nosewheel from rising and slipping out of position. The securing device is hydraulically lowered onto the nosewheel and securely locked at the push of a button. Standard: mechanical securing system.

4) In most aircraft, the generator voltage is 28.4 V. The 25.6 V on-board batteries are charged with this voltage. With the mototok ground power supply, the on-board voltage can be maintained and used to start the turbines.
