Part of a range of robust, reliable, high capacity ramp containers and pallet dollies. Compliant to IATA and European CE Standards and specifically designed for arduous service over many years on busy airport ramps.
The ACD72 with its carrying capacity of 7000kg, has a load bed with air-cargo inverted castors and lead on rollers along both sides and rear end. Heavy duty lift up stops are fitted in correct position to retain multiple ULD types and sizes. The load bed is in-filled with formed walkways and grip-faced tread plate and forklift pockets on the underside of chassis.
The running gear consists of two twin wheeled swivelling castors at the front with 50mm diameter king-pin and off set hub with heavy duty taper roller bearings and two twin wheel fixed units at the rear.
The highly effective brake system is activated by raising the tow-bar to an automatically latched position, the tow-bar itself features a 75mm towing eye fitted with a 30mm ring section. Release is by a foot pedal mounted on the tow-bar. The eye is prevented from touching the ground by a sprung device. Adjustment is incorporated to keep the eye at coupling height when the tow bar is at rest. The rear hitch is a heavy duty ‘E’ type with a captive spring loaded 33mm diameter pin which can be retained in the open position.
This unit comes equipped with hi-visibility markings on the surround frame, corners and both sides of the tow-bar.
