Created for the busiest and most demanding customers, the LC270-RJ3 series units are the most durable and robust carts available on the market. A heavy-duty galvanized frame completely wraps the unit, protecting it from potential damage. The cabinet is constructed of heavy-gauge aluminum with a grip-strut work deck. The waste hose sits in a special drip-tray that allows any spillover to be flushed through the integrated drip-tray drain. All tanks and compartments are completely winterized and totally enclosed in high-density foam insulation with onboard heaters to keep the unit ramp ready in the most extreme climates (fluids and storage compartments).
As stand-alone units bolted into a trailer, the Gasoline LC270-RJ3G is the industry’s only “convertible” lav cart: it can be inserted into a 3/4-ton pickup truck to change the carts from towable to drivable (see the LC270-Insert, pictured below). The 46-inch (116.8cm) deck height (made of grip-strut and diamond-plate steel) is low enough for servicing regional jets but provides plenty of height for servicing larger jets. The RJ-Series carts set the standard for quality in aircraft ground support equipment.
The LC270-RJ3 Lavatory Service Cart utilizes AERO’s popular, stand-alone LC270-Insert tank system. The 100-gallon (378.5 liter) fill/flush tank holds an immersion heater for insurance against frozen blue lav fluid, and the 170-gallon (643.5 liter) waste tank features easy access for flushing, with FDA-approved, pump-less gravity drain and closed waste valve. The pump, waste valve, flow meter, and fill hose sit in the insulated and heated, split-lid rear compartment. A stow nipple holds the waste coupler and hose out of the way when not in use, and the 12-foot (3.66m) waste hose sits in a special drip-tray that contains any spillover until it can be flushed back into the waste tank through the integrated drip-tray drain.
The LC270-RJ3 – like all of AERO Specialties’ lav and water carts – comes complete with all required hoses, couplers, and fittings. The waste valve can be configured to meet any operation’s dumping requirements.
