The Helitowcart is a towing device.
After installing his wheels the operator hooks tow cart to helicopter.
He then lifts the helicopter nose slightly and triggers movement in the desired direction.
The machine easily moves the helicopter forward and backward.
Helicopters are hooked to tow carts using safe attachment systems.
This towing concept offers impressive towing capability with compact machines.
The Helitowcart is equipped with high quality electronic controller. It ensures impeccable precision and long term reliability. Acceleration and Deceleration are impeccably controlled. This system ensures trusted helicopter handling in crowded hangars.
The Helitowcart is battery operated. Hangar personnel adore its clean, silent and fume free operation. The machine has a long autonomy between charges. Recommended 12 volts deep cycle batteries are readily available worldwide. The included battery charger is automatic. Battery chargers are 115/230v. It can be left unattended during charging process.
Traction wheels are independent from each other. Each wheel has its own motor resulting in great performance. The V600 models are also equipped with a de-rated gear mechanism that multiplies torque. This design delivers very powerful traction.
Smooth ride on pneumatics
The Helitowcart is equipped with pneumatic wheels. The large tires provide a smooth ride over pebbles, hangar rails and broken tarmac. The wider wheels can be fitted with winter cables for tough winter conditions. Pneumatic wheels contribute to the superior traction the Helitowcart is known for.
Universal Towcarts Design
The V600 series Universal Tow carts have an impressive mechanical design. They are built to offer exceptional power and traction. Each traction wheel has its own 300 watts motor. Wheels are set-up in pairs linked by de-rated gear mechanisms .This ensures that should one wheel loose contact with ground , its power is transferred to its sister wheel for maintained traction. The unit is also equipped with a high quality controller that ensures unsurpassed precision.
In addition to a power switch located on the joystick a Main Safety Switch is located on the tow cart cabinet. This switch allows operator to completely turn off tow cart. It allows to switch from its tow cart function to its APU function (option). This system makes tow cart management very easy.
This 24v electric lift is operated by its own 300 watts motor. For optimal lifting capability both motor and lift are each fitted with de-rated gear mechanisms. This provides exceptional torque and precision. The lift is also equipped with an adjustable head that allows to raise attachment system higher for particular needs.
The V600 series are operated with a joystick. This high quality unit works in tandem with the controller located inside the tow cart. Together this joystick and controller offer great precision. A true pleasure to operate. In addition to controlling direction, the joystick allows to adjust speed and informs operator of battery charger level. It also offers trouble shooting guidance. The joystick being linked to the tow cart by cord ensures the operator keeps physical contact with the machine and thus acts as a safety warning against unfortunate distractions while handling helicopters.
