The new BISON family from Goldhofer will make its first public appearance at the International Airport GSE Expo in Las Vegas, Nevada, later this year.

From October 2 to 4, 2018, Goldhofer will present its completely new conventional aircraft tow tractors in the Rio All-Suite Hotel & Casino, at booth 713, which will be hosted by Flite Line, a Goldhofer company in the US market.

Inspired by the national mammal of the US, the BISON family has been designed for reliable and efficient pushback operation. Based on 70 years of experience, this is a completely new vehicle family that combines state-of-the-art technology with a unique modular design. The family comprises three sizes but this is just the beginning of a herd that will grow within the next few years.

At the International Airport GSE Expo, Goldhofer will showcase two BISON D models (with diesel engines) and one BISON E model that is equipped with a battery drivetrain. Thanks to the modular product platform of the BISON family, a BISON D can be converted into a BISON E at any time. This allows the operator to go green without having to exchange vehicles.

The same concept has already been implemented with the SHERPA family from Goldhofer, which will be represented in Las Vegas by a fully electric SHERPA E model.
