TowFLEXX – Unique Tow Trucks

TowFLEXX is manufacturer of electric aircraft tugs “Made in Germany”. Our models cover a wide range of aircraft, from small aircraft to turboprop and 60 ton business jets.

The larger towing vehicles are towbarless and remote controlled. A unique 360° turntable increases safety enormously and gives TowFLEXX the unchallenged USP.

Turn the aircraft on the spot

Towing an aircraft with a conventional tug requires a lot of space. In addition, every movement must be carefully considered to avoid major damage. To be able to turn the nose gear, the aircraft must be moved back and forth. In addition, utmost care must be taken to avoid oversteering and damaging the sensitive nose landing gear when maneuvering.

360° technology with patent pending

With Towflexx the above mentioned worries are history. The remote controlled aircraft tugs (series 3 and above) are equipped with a unique turntable, which allows the tug to rotate 360° around the landing gear, while the nose wheel remains in the starting position. This is not only unique, but innovative, safer and moreover profitable for the user!

From own demand to the whole world

Long before the establishment of Towflexx there was the wish to get the own aircraft out of the hangar with less effort. In the beginning this was just an idea for own purposes, but within a very short time this idea gained a lot of attention. The label “Schleppmaxxe” was created and the first tugs were produced in small series.

Tugmaxxe becomes Towflexx

During the last years the international requests grew, so that the decision was made to change “Schleppmaxxe” into an internationally working term: the birth of Towflexx.

more usable Hangar Space


more Revenue


higher Efficiency


reduced Damages

More Space means more Revenue

The remote-controlled aircraft tugs are extremely maneuverable and flexible thanks to their 360° technology. This gives the user the possibility to use the entire space in the hangar, because no space is needed for the tractor to maneuver. This allows more aircraft to be placed in the Hangar, generating up to 40% more revenue.

Reducing Costs

Neben erhöhten Einnahmen können gleichzeitig Kosten gespart werden. Weshalb Sie durch Towflexx Geld sparen können? Ganz einfach: zum einen wird nur eine Person benötigt, um die flexiblen Flugzeugschlepper zu steuern, wodurch Personalkosten gespart werden können. Des Weiteren werden Schäden am Bugrad vermieden, weil es keine Schleppstange gibt. Das Bugrad ist auf einem frei drehbaren Drehteller gelagert der verhindert, dass dieses sich verdrehen kann.
