Trepel Challenger 430 Aircraft Tractor


Adaptable medium-size aircraft tractor.


The CHALLENGER 430 is a conventional aircraft tractor that has the capacity to handle pushback, repositioning and maintenance towing of aircraft up to a fully loaded Boeing B777.

The mechanical lock-up clutch of the new generation of power shift transmission reduces fuel consumption when moving at higher speed.

The hydro-pneumatic front axle suspension provides best possible driving comfort for the operator.

The liftable power pack compartment minimizes downtime of the tractor and reduces maintenance costs.
