Toll Dnata have taken delivery of their second Bliss-Fox 70 tonne F1-500 pushback/tow tractor from Nepean Group , to meet the demands of Emirates’ new A380 service to Australia. The Fox 70 tonne F1-500 pushback/tow tractor was delivered on schedule for the arrival of the first Emirates A380 flight into Sydney in February.
The performance of Toll Dnata’s original F1-500 tractor, delivered 18 months ago, coupled with Bliss-Fox’s high level of support, convinced Toll Dnata to go with Bliss-Fox for their second F1-500 pushback/tow tractor. According to Toll Dnata, the Bliss-Fox 70 tonne F1-500 pushback/tow tractor can deliver and commission the unit on time.
The Bliss-Fox 70 tonne F1-500 pushback/tow tractor is suitable to the demands of moving the new generation of A380s, and has a high power of 450 kW. The Bliss-Fox 70 tonne F1-500 pushback/tow tractor features line-of-site, driver comfort and has a full width enclosed cabin. The Bliss-Fox 70 tonne F1-500 pushback/tow tractor is also available as a 54-tonne version for A340 and B747, and can be scaled up to the 70 tonne/A380 capability with the inclusion of drop-in ballast.
