MUSKEGON, Mich. — SAF-Holland has introduced faster-turning landing gear.
The Holland Atlas FastGear can be lowered at a speed of 1.8 turns per inch of travel in high gear, making it the fastest landing gear in the industry, according to the company. It claims the landing gear can be lowered minutes – not seconds – faster than traditional landing gear, increasing driver productivity.
Two models are offered: Atlas FastGear, weighing 156 lbs with a 140,000-lb load carrying capacity and 27,000-lb side-load capacity; and the Atlas FastGear HD, weighing 182 lbs, with a 170,000-lb capacity and 34,000-lb side-load capacity.
The new systems come with SAF-Holland’s 10-year NoLube lifetime warranty. The NoLube feature uses a sealed grease tube that completely surrounds the elevating screw, coating the screw when the leg is raised or lowered.
