Support Equipment

Spika Ground Support Equipment

Our support equipment is designed with one goal in mind – to improve the efficiency of your operations. Whether you need ground support equipment to assist with your aircraft maintenance activities or are looking for a welding cart to improve the safety of your welding facility, you can count on Spika equipment to provide high quality, user friendly equipment that will make your life easier.  

Transportation

Some of our products are designed to transport tools, parts, and equipment around your facility. Our trailers, for example, can be loaded with engines, gear boxes, or even helicopters and towed to their destination. Our racks and carts will hold large and small components and are easily moved around your facility, keeping everything at point-of-use and eliminating wasted motion.

Store and Support

Other products are designed to store or support your equipment.  Our industrial-duty jack stands support up to 14 tons, and our railcar jack stands support 70 tons. Shoring stands and trestles support a helicopter for access and maintenance, while our blade racks securely store rotor blades while removed.

Most of our support products, however, are designed to both store your equipment and allow it to be easily transported wherever required. Almost all of our support equipment features:

Aluminum Construction

All-Aluminum Construction

Aluminum is lightweight and corrosion resistant. It can support large load capacities without adding unnecessary mass, allowing equipment to be moved easily.
