In 1969, the genesis of today's air cargo industry occurred. Eagle was there to answer the airlines' call for an all-weather, high-speed cargo tractor which had not yet been invented. Eagle successfully engineered and developed the Ford F350 Bob Tail for United Airlines at Detroit Metropolitan Airport. Within two decades, the Eagle Bob Tail had become the narrow and wide body cargo towing standard used by all North American and British Airlines, and also for military GSE. In the mid 1990's, some cargo customers tried using industrial tractors, converted to high speed use, as Bob Tail replacements. However, by the early 2000’s the converted industrial tractors had demonstrated a track record of unreliability, and excessive driver fatigue and discomfort caused by a lack of suspension. Because of these problems with traditional tractors, Eagle Bob Tails have continued to be the leader in high-speed cargo towing.


What the Eagle Bob Tail high-speed cargo tractors offer:

  • Eagle Tugs was the originator of the Bob Tail design over 45 years ago.
  • The Ford F750 Chassis has an unequaled commercially-proven, reliable drive train and braking system.
  • Power steering and braking, ventilated front and rear disc brakes, and heavy-duty wheels and radial tires.
  • Ford cabs are ergonomic, comfortable and safe.
  • Air Conditioning is standard (can be deleted upon request).
  • Rear sight tunnel for direct hitch visibility for the operator.
  • Heavy steel plate body and front & rear bumpers, including a heavy tubular grill guard and side protection.
  • Unparalleled reliability and factory-direct support is the Eagle Tugs advantage.
