Universal Platform | Repositions Easily for Use on Either Side

The UH-72 Lakota Daily Maintenance Stand supports access to, and inspection and maintenance of, the UH-72 Lakota and other similarly sized aircraft, including the Bell 407, Bell 212, EC145, and R44. Manufactured primarily from 6061 and 6063 aluminum, the maintenance stand has 24” of manual height adjustability and removable, self-storing guardrails that utilize Spika’s fully-captured, tool-free camlock bolting system. The stand is equipped with vertically telescopic guardrails to accommodate overhead obstructions and a horizontally telescopic rail to provide 360-degree fall protection during tail rotor maintenance. The extension ladder easily adjusts to a 20-degree pitch at any height, and link bars may be used to connect multiple deck modules together as a system. Rotating inboard outriggers facilitate easy placement of the deck over skids. Impact foam on the leading edge of the platform, as well as under the deck, keeps both personnel and equipment safe.
