MAINTENANCE PLATFORM, ADJUSTABLE, MECHANICAL, AIRCRAFT
(TYPE B-1) PART NO. 1560-EG-100 NSN 1730-00-529-6235 EIC: UAT
THEORY OF OPERATION
Front Wheel Brakes.
The tongue steers the back wheels and allows the operator to move the platform into position more easily. The tongue
can be removed when the platform is in position.
The wheels swivel or can be locked to roll in one direction. This allows the operator to move the platform sideways
to get it close to the work. Movement of the platform can be stopped by hand operated brakes on the front wheels.
The platform can be immobilized by jacking the wheels off the ground, using the immobilizing jack handles located
at each corner of the frame.
The jackscrews are positioned by means of a hand wheel and support the load of the platform. No additional locking
Static Discharge Reel
After the platform is positioned and immobilized, the static wire is pulled from the reel and attached to an earth ground
by means of alligator clips. After use, the static wire is returned to the reel.
