Description

Not every aircraft or space craft has reverse on its engines and using reverse could inflict FOD (Foreign Object Damage. Well, not in KSP, but anyway).
That’s why you need a pushback truck - for towing aircraft / space craft around KSC.
 
This particular model is suitable for light craft, up to 40 ton.
Tow bar is placed very close to the ground for towing craft with low clearance between the nose gear and hull.
Another version of this truck for bigger craft is available.
Light Pushback Truck (w2)

 
The truck utilizes Special High-Torque Wheel - while looking almost like standard Ruggedized Vehicular Wheel, this one is seriously geared down. It has higher torque and greater grip in exchange for relatively low speed and higher power consumption along with significantly greater price and weight (hence, the total weight of the truck is more than 10 ton, which is good for towing).
 
It also heavily relies on welded parts - the frame, tow bar, and clamps are welded due to high stress experienced by these parts. You can find those parts here

 
Built in the SPH in KSP version 1.2.2.
 
Happy towing!
