The Kitfox has a gross aircraft weight of 700 lbs.  With the tundra tires and rear tundra tail wheel its a hump to push the plane up hill into the hanger.  We cane up with a $35.oo Harbor Freight special!

We used a solid tire furniture mover with a tail wheel adaptor we made and  welded on.  Great for pushing and turning the plane with all those sticky tires on the tarmack.

We reconned the lake shore for a trip up coming next week for drop offs and trails into the lake.

Back to our aircraft dolly.  We used a low cost dolly with solid tires.  Remember the sticky tundra tires making the plane impossible to push by the aircraft holds.  We welded on a tail wheel holder and instant success! Outstanding in use Kane Klassics Ktifox Aircraft dolly.

 

The low cost homemade tail wheel dolly works outstandingly!

Once the welding was finished a can of red spray paint touched it all up.

Look for more uses of the airplane as we go into winter.  In a high desert like the Reno area the best flying is in the winter.  Cold stable air, unless a storm is upon us.
