The LC270E-Insert is a self-contained lavatory servicing unit that bolts into a long-bed 3/4-ton pickup truck and utilizes an electric motor to pump fluids. The rotationally molded polyethylene waste and fill tanks are housed in an insulated, corrosion-proof aluminum compartment with a grip-strut top deck that provides a safe and stable platform for easily reaching the lav port on the largest aircraft. The heated split-lid rear compartment holds the pump, waste valve, and fill hose. The LC270-Insert is another example of AERO Specialties’ high quality and user-friendly ground support equipment products.
Why buy an insert?
While complete lav and water service truck systems are common, AERO Specialties offers customers a much-appreciated alternative: potable water and lavatory service inserts that mount on the customer’s vehicle.
These systems allow for great flexibility; since the insert ships by itself and installs on a customer-supplied truck, freight costs are drastically lower. Additionally, the units can later be separated from the truck and mounted on a cart or other fleet vehicle.
Installation is simple and takes most customers only a few hours; the cart bolts to the truck bed and wires to the truck battery with the included wiring harness. Inserts are also available as stand-alone units with a dedicated battery. If needed, AERO can provide the truck or install the insert on a customer-supplied vehicle (with nominal installation charge).
Aircraft handlers worldwide appreciate the adaptability of AERO’s insert system and have many of these units in operation globally.
