HeliBasket LLC is the leading provider of Helicopter Maintenance Platforms and Remote Cargo Hook systems to the United States Army and National Guard.

Today our platforms are Aluminum and Composite with design lives in excess of 25 years. We guarantee no oil canning decks and the strongest structures in the industry. Walking surfaces are rated at minimum medium per OSHA requirements. The work decks do not retain heat, are drainable, provide excellent grip in all directions and are easily cleaned. Auxillary step components do not tip fore or aft. Excellent grip allows the steps to be placed in any position on the deck.

HeliBasket LLC platforms have an extremely low FOD footprint, the lowest in class. Our frames and steps are welded whenever possible. The aluminum frame extrusions have a minimum 0.250 inch wall thickness for superior strength. The systems are designed for the full military mission; in the hangar, in the field, and ease of deployment. All HeliBasket LLC maintenance platforms are designed to be towed at up to15 MPH. Actual deployment time ranges from 30 minutes to zero minutes. The specifically designed caster assemblies provide superior ramp towing, cargo aircraft winching and hand manuvering. The limited hardware is stainless steel with Nyloc self locking nuts. The Pintle Tow Bar assembly was designed by HeliBasket LLC to also accommodate alternate military and commercial tow bars. Each frame has 5000 lb tie down fixtures for ramp areas, 463L pallets and other means of deployment.

These new designs are not relegated to single airframes, but fit multiple airframes providing full OSHA and ANSI compliance. They are designed to roll on and off, unhindered, over the ramps of the C-130 through C-5, NATO and AN124 cargo aircraft.

HeliBasket LLC platforms are fully configured with retractable grounding cables, FOD boxes and repositional Computer stands. All main wheels have locking casters and foam filled pnuematic tires. All caster frames, hand railings, and toe plates are powder coated. The tire brakes incorporate an over center positive lock with 0.250 inch steel powder coated face plates

The HeliBasket LLC platforms are shipped fully assembled with a 3 year warranty.

All components and materials are US manufacture.
