Exclusive rotary hitch and four in one versatility make this tractor unique.
An Omni Directional Vehicle (ODV) represents the first major innovation in ground support vehicles in fifty years. Rated by total load capacity, the G Series tractors are designed to cover avaiation towing applications up through 90,000 pounds. All four models utilize the Hammonds’ patented radial hitch which enables the tractors to maneuver and precisely manipulate aircraft like no other concept. Having omni directional capability, the ODV can move in any radial direction from a fixed point and rotate 360° without moving from that spot. Attached to an aircraft through the radial hitch, an ODV provides smooth, precise control in a fraction of the space required by traditional tractors.
4 in 1 versatility
Hammonds offers the industry’s only tractor capable of performing four major ramp functions. Quick-change attachments converts the ODV into a versatile tow bar tractor, a towbarless tractor, snow plow or rotary broom.
Never having to make needless maneuvers or large steering arcs saves time, stress and wear on eqipment, aircraft and personnel. Requiring only the area it occupies to maneuver in any direction, an ODV eliminates lost motion required by conventional four wheel vehicles. An ODV makes awkward positions a thing of the past.
The exclusive rotary hitch...
Every ODV has a circular hitch that completes an outer ring around the tractor. A Pintle connection can be rotated and locked at either the front or rear of the tractor. In addition, the hitch can rotate freely around the entire circumference making it possible to position the tractor drive wheels relative to the object being handled with surgical precision. Packing a hanger takes on a whole new meaning with an ODV. More aircraft safely stored in less space means more revenue.
