The RC-135 Landing Gear Stand (LGS) offers first-class, state of the art, access to the RC-135 aircraft. It’s a complete modular system that when combined with other options such as lights, electrical and pneumatic circuits, and toolboxes gives personnel the ability to operate on the aircraft while minimizing traveling up and down the ladder. We use not only Finite Element Analysis but proof load testing to confirm that each design is rated for a 1000 lb. load capacity.
MANEUVERABILITY AND STORAGE
Although a compact design, the Landing Gear Maintenance Stand has ample room for storage of various pneumatic and power tools and even aircraft parts. This customized fall protection stand designed specifically for the RC-135 with ASTM Carbon Steel and 6061 aluminum construction is maneuvered by 2-3 personnel. The tough iron core of the casters and its unique design allows it to be fully transported by truck and easily set up in minutes by 2 personnel.
LIFTING PERSONNEL TO NEW HEIGHTS
The Landing Gear Maintenance Stand comes equipped with a hydraulically operated steel scissor lift that gives stability and ample lifting power to each platform. The average vertical travel is 20″.
FALL PROTECTION AND OSHA COMPLIANCE
The guardrails are removable and interchangeable and still provide fall protection and OSHA compliant safety. All of the walking surfaces are equipped with antislip surfaces to help minimize any slips or falls. The RC-135 Maintenance Stands are one of the most sturdiest designs on the market. It’s made to withstand the beating that maintenance personnel dish out!
We stand behind our products with a 3-year warranty. Each fall protection stand also comes equipped with an Operator’s and Maintenance Manual that describes how to properly operate and care for your stand.
