The universal low profile transportation/shipping stand is designed for supporting and conveying aircraft engines of different types both within maintenance areas and transportation by road, sea and air. The engine cradle is mountable/dismountable from the transporter stand and normally secured during transport at four positions on the transporter stand by means of locking pins. The engine on the cradle can be protected from damage by means of an optional bumper bar assembly at each end of the stand.
The transporter stand is supplied with castor wheels as standard.
