Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - Disabled Aircraft Services is pleased to release our latest upgrades to the versatile line of the PlaneSkate. The 4K 2nd Gen. debuts a new tray design built to accommodate lower-profile aircraft wheel struts, as well as an easy-leader on the winch to ensure the winch strap is properly retracted when recovering the disabled aircraft; this also includes the line of upgraded Grainger wheels that have been used for the last six months. These new design changes increase the 2nd Generation’s structural capacity by 30 percent.
Designed for aircraft 10,000lbs gross weight or less, the 4K 2nd Gen. will reduce runway closure time due to an aircraft flat tire to less than 10 minutes. Weighing in at nearly 300lbs, it is the most durable aircraft flat tire dolly on the market.
The 2nd Gen. also accommodates aircraft with wheel fairings, Newer Cessna’s low-profile gear, tail wheel aircraft, making it easier to load aircraft with a flat tire.
Built with the worst weather conditions in mind, the 2nd Gen. 4K takes on any hard-surface runway, taxiway, or ramp to keep your airport running efficiently 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
