Aircraft Positioning Units/Tugs for Airport Operations, MRO, FBO & Aircraft Production

2003: Kersten Eckert, Pilot, owner of the first Cirrus in Europe and founder of Mototok International GmbH, was annoyed every time he wants to fetch his machine from the very back position of the hangar.

With a conventionally diesel tow tractor it was an awkward task. He thought by himself – that must be done very much easier! And started with the unique idea of a towbarless electric driven and wireless controlled tug: The first Mototok was born.

Over the years Mototok International grew up tremendeous and expanded its range of products. Nowadays you can find Mototoks towing aircraft up to 195 tons all around the world on airports, production plants and even military aircraft carrier.

Due to its compact design a Mototok can be used for all kind of tasks in a hangar, on the apron or anywhere you want!
