TBM-700 Towing

Mon Jul 25, 2011 12:30 am

Hey gang. I've got a universal towbar with attachments for the TBM-700. There are 2 sets identical sized sets of holes on the nosegear assembly, one is about 6 inches above the other. The towbar fits equally well in either set of holes. Does anyone if one of the sets of holes is better than the other for towing purposes? Thanks in advance.

Where I work, I've most commonly seen the bottom holes used with the tow pins. I've found that I get better clearance from the prop.
To actively root against anybody is just low, and I hope karma comes back at you with a vengeance
