The Iron Tire has a weight capacity of 18,000 lbs., covering a large variety of single and twin engine airplanes.
The Iron Tire is equipped with two universal tow bar attachments so the dolly can be quickly towed to the airplane and easily moved around the hangar.
The Iron Tire can be used on a flat tire no matter what condition the flat is in. If the tire is off of the bead, shredded, bound in a brake caliper, or just simply flat, our product will still get the job done.
The Iron Tire does not touch any part of the airplane other than the tire itself. This protects the user from causing further physical damage to aircraft components such as brake lines, linkages, seals, shrouds, paint, or other structural parts.
The Iron Tire does not require the aircraft to move or roll when being used. In fact, aircraft mechanics providing design feedback suggest not rolling a flat tire even a few inches.
Because the device only has heavy duty swivel casters, perfect alignment of the device with the aircraft is not an issue since the product is self-aligning (extending the lifetime of the casters).
The Iron Tire has a multi-directional frame and does not rely on single-direction pulleys or wenches. This makes the process of separating the aircraft from the dolly quick and easy.
