Heli handler, options?

Postby rogaland » Wed Oct 2 2019, 03:18

At the moment we are using a 3.5 X 3.5 heli dolly to move the b206 in and out of the shed. But it require us to leave the dolly/platform outside, not ideal as we leave it outside for days. I've been looking at better options and came across this Youtube video (16 sec into, below), moving the H125, to me it looks like a custom built (extended) electric pallet jack/truck. 

Anyone have seen similar build?

Yeah Lifesaver helicopters in Sydney and Moruya use one on their BK'S
Modified Crown Lifter - Not sure on how they come about them though.

Thanks Rescue520,
I'll have a look at their configuration. It shouldn't be too complex for a steel fabricator to customise it, I imagine.

I also had a look at this https://www.helitowcart.com/helicarrier/lightduty[url]Heli Tow Cart[/url] - very similar setup

Yes I have a Crown Walkie Stacker that has been extended for a 206L works great. I bought mine 2nd hand from the Aviation Trader.
You will just have to keep an eye out for 1.

Thanks Wooduck, I will look out for one, we might just get a steel fabricator build one based on the pictures I've seen on the internet.
