The TLD TMX-50 series is the first and only AWD & AWS tractor specifically designed to safely tow business jets, helicopters, military airframes, and the full spectrum of regional and narrow-body airline aircraft. Able to tow up to 148,000 lbs. (67,000 kg.) in good weather, its wide towing range makes it the most versatile and comprehensive unit on the tarmac today. Equally at home handling a single-engine GA aircraft as it is moving the largest of corporate jets, the TMX-50 is truly “right sized.”
The TMX-50 is available in three configurations:
- Max DBP: 8,500 lb.
- Max Tow Weight: 85,000 lbs.
- Largest Aircraft Capability: G500
- Max DBP: 11,350 lb.
- Max Tow Weight: 113,500 lbs.
- Largest Aircraft Capability: G650
- Max DBP: 14,800 lb.
- Max Tow Weight: 148,000 lbs.
- Largest Aircraft Capability: B737-500
The TMX-50’s compact design, standard 4-wheel steering, and all-wheel drive allow for exceptional traction in all climates while providing the maneuverability required for precise aircraft positioning and hangar stacking. It also features advanced ergonomics and controls, such as the point-of-use inching feature – which solves the time-consuming problem of lining up the final few inches of the towbar lunette & tractor hitch (for final alignments to be controlled right at the hitch). And with seating for three, the TMX-50 can tow more than just your aircraft, securely transporting your entire team during longer towing applications.
The optional cab is environmentally controlled, and features a panoramic windshield for combined viewing of hitches, towbar, and the aircraft. This means with or without a cab, you get the same optimal safety awareness while using the TMX-50.
As with all TLD tractors, the TMX-50 utilizes only heavy-duty industrial components. Designed for direct and easy access to all components, you will experience significantly less downtime with these units. The TMX-50 is offered in 3 different variants with towing capabilities up to aircraft up to 148,000lbs. Standard engine is US EPA T4F/EU stage 3B and optional Tier 3/EU stage 3A are available.
