An economical lavatory truck system, the LC270-Insert is a self-contained unit that bolts into any long-bed 3/4-ton pickup truck. The cabinet is a heavy-gauge aluminum enclosure with a grip-strut working step. The waste hose sits in a special drip-tray that contains spillover until it can be flushed back into the waste tank through the integrated drip-tray drain. All tanks and compartments are enclosed in high-density foam insulation with onboard heaters to keep the unit ramp-ready in low temps.
AERO also provides a turnkey lav truck system including both truck and installed insert tank. Please contact AERO for details.
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.
