Tow Behind: Tow Work Platform Assists Engine Maintenance

Posted: April 10, 2015

This lift platform was designed and built for a client to do engine maintenance work on DC9 aircraft. The tow behind unit was designed to be towed behind a standard tug and incorporates locking casters to fix it in place for work. The guardrails were designed to be folded down at the midrail, which allows the platform to roll under the engine housing from any direction. The pneumatic/hydraulic power unit makes the lift platform suitable for use throughout the entire hangar area.
