Trepel challenger  700 aircraft tractor

Cost-efficient large aircraft tractor

The CHALLENGER 700 is a conventional aircraft tractor that has the capacity to handle push-back, repositioning and maintenance towing of all wide body aircraft including a fully loaded Airbus A380.  The mechanical lock-up clutch of the new generation of power shift transmission reduces fuel consumption when moving at higher speed.  The liftable power-pack compartment minimizes downtime of the tractor and reduces maintenance costs.
