The Landing Gear Access Stand provides safe access to all maintenance locations of the main and nose main landing gear. The base frame is designed to adjust to most wheel assembly configurations on main and nose gear. The hydraulic height adjustment, one hand lateral operation and full swivel and lock casters allow single technician placement and use. The ATACS bumper pads at the top of the stand as well as the Rubber D bumper pads on the landing gear side ensure the aircraft interface is protected. Ensuring aircraft and technician safety was paramount with the design of this stand. The Main Landing Gear Access Stand utilizes anti-fatigue and anti-slip ladder rungs and fall resistant anchorage on the upper ladder. A corrosion resistant powder coat finish ensures the longevity of the stand. A rigid tow bar for long distance towing can be included in the design.
Although designed for specific landing gear access tasks, this stand is also suitable for various maintenance inspection and technical operations scenarios.
This unit has been designed for and tested on the following aircraft:
- Boeing B737, B747, B757 (both in the main & nose gear positions), B767, B777, B787
