For sale: Priceless 701E Tug - $1200, Destin FL
I bought this here on beechtalk, used it for about a month and then stumbled upon the remote control tugs, and $6k later, I don't need the priceless tug
I'm selling it for what I paid for it, which is roughly half the retail price at $1200
Here's the original ad from Phil Sprang, 1st owner:
I purchased this tug new at Sun-n-Fun in 2013. It has served us well. One of the greatest features of this tug is that the transaxle has a differential in it and the yoke has a swivel point in it. What that means is that you can turn without having to lift the tug off the ground. One handed aircraft movements are possible.
The manufacturer, Pricless Tugs is in Lawrenceville, GA and I have been to the factory. They claim a 4500 lb capacity. We've been moving our 3000 lb 182 with ease. It is currently set up with Cessna adapters however adapters for most GA aircraft are available from Priceless.
This tug is fully electric and I replaced the batteries in March of 2015. Last year, the original transaxle failed and I took it back to Priceless and had them replace the transaxle. I was offered the option to upgrade to a new, heavy duty, version which I did, at my cost.
The new price for this tug is approximately $2500. I'm asking $1200.
The tug is located at KCCO, Newnan, GA. It will fit in a 182 and I suspect also in a 172 are anything larger. I'm willing to deliver it within 100 miles. If you are farther away and need truck shipping, lets talk. The best way to contact me is via Private Message.
