The eJP-12 continues the co-development efforts between Eagle and Tronair. Powered by dual AC electric drive motors, the eJP-12 features Zero Degree Technology for industry leading turning capabilities. Operators will be able to position aircraft more precisely as the motors independently turn to reduce the space required to maneuver. The eJP-12 is designed to safely and efficiently move regional and large cabin business jets in all weather conditions.

Advanced control systems combine with integrated sensors providing oversteer protection and an aircraft selection system to limit torque. The vehicle can operate as a sit down model or enters creep mode when the steering column is adjusted to a stand up position. The automatic parking brake always engages upon stopping to maintain overall safety during operation.

Eagle has been manufacturing the industry’s most reliable and functional tow tractors for 50 years and now produces the eJP line of towbarless tractors. Designed and manufactured in the United States, the eJP-12 is backed by factory direct service and support. With a robust product line and the strongest warranty in the industry, we pride ourselves on providing the highest level of quality and customer service.
