Helicopter ground handling wheels are used to lift a helicopter off the ground for easy movement in the hangar or on the ramp. They are attached to the skids, allowing for the user to easily balance the aircraft during maneuvering without the tail hitting the ground.
Our ground handling wheels provide a portable and dependable solution for the maneuvering of your helicopter. This model of mechanical ground handling wheels allows for movement of Bell 206 “Jet Ranger” and TH-67 Creek model helicopters by means of heavy-duty tires and an integrated locking system. By applying force to the included 48″ (122cm) handle bar (not shown), the helicopter may be lifted off the ground and the ground handling wheel automatically locked in place with the engagement pin when the proper height is reached.
This set is designed for the Bell and Agusta-Bell 206 “Jet Ranger” and TH-67 Creek military model (high or low skids). This dual-wheel design reduces twisting by providing equal pressure on both sides of the tube. Therefore, the stress and strain associated with single wheel systems is greatly reduced. A special cammed-out area locks the wheels onto the skid tube pins, eliminating the need to install any pins into your skid tube. The aircraft is raised approximately 3″ as the wheels are rotated into position and automatically lock via a spring-loaded “L-pin.” To lower the helicopter, pull the pin and slowly lower the bar.
