The Aircraft cargo loader
The Aircraft Cargo Loader is a rapidly deployable, high-reach mechanized aircraft loader that can transport and lift up to 25,000 pounds of cargo and load it onto military and civilian aircraft.
The loader built by Galtech industries is highly mobile and can transport a full load of cargo at a maximum speed of 17 mph. Its versatile deck elevates from 39 inches to 18 feet, 4 inches high and employs a powered conveyer system to move the cargo on or off the aircraft. The deck has pitch, roll, and side-to-side adjustment for quick and efficient interface with all military and commercial cargo aircraft, including the B-747, L-1011, and DC-10. The loader has a 100-inch wheel-to-wheel width for loading/unloading and transport operations. The loader is easily configured from operational to transport mode, which reduces the width from 170 inches to 109 inches. The chassis is also hydraulically adjustable to facilitate driving the loader on or off of C-130, C-141, C-5, or C-17 aircraft when it is transported.
