Airport Pushback Tractor & Tugs Our airport push-back tractors and tugs make a risky airport procedure safe and easy. Our airport push-back GSE equipment allows your aircraft to be pushed backward and away from an airport gate by external power. Pushbacks are carried out by special, low-profile vehicles called pushback tractors or tugs. Keep in mind we offer financing on most of our GSE Equipment.
