I have one for non-retracts with wheelpants. It pushes great, traction can be an issue if the hangar floor is slick when pulling with it. Plenty of power to push/pull my 235 in/out of the hangar with a slight incline.

I think the ones for planes without wheelpants drives a wheel that engages the nose tire instead of having wheels/tires itself. That would likely resolve the traction issue.

I like that it breaks down and fits in the baggage compartment. I also like no oil to change, no gas to fill, and if the battery goes bad, I can go to Home Depot and get another.

One battery charge gets me about 4 in/out cycles.
