Aero-Tow's Lil Sherman is an aircraft mover designed
to allow one person to easily move a single or twin
engine aircraft.  Adaptors are available for a wide
range of aircraft and can be attached to either the
nose wheel or tail wheel.

The swivel front frame compensates for forward cantor
of nose wheel of aircraft while turning.  This keeps the
wheels of the tug on the ground for better traction,
The Lil Sherman also has adaptors that enable
attachment to aircraft with wheel fairings.
Lil Sherman is powered by a 24 volt electric drivetrain.  This gives it the power to move aircraft up to a
maximum of 6,000 pounds.  The unit comes complete with 2 - 12 volt sealed batteries and an automatic
battery charger.  The charger should be plugged in whenever the tug is not in use - it will automatically shut
off when the battery is charged.

Lil Sherman also has lights that allow for illumination under the aircraft.
Please note:  the Lil Sherman is a powered towbar.  Turning the aircraft is similar to turning an aircraft
with a regular towbar - the nose gear (or tail wheel) is the pivot point and the turn is made by moving the
towbar left or right.  With a powered towbar this means lifting the wheels of the tug slightly off the ground
to slide the wheels of the tug left or right.
