Well before the first Bell 505 Jet Ranger X was delivered to its debut customer in the summer of 2017, Helitowcart was planning how to move it.
The Quebec-based company has long been a pioneer in ground handling equipment, but as with countless makes and models before, the Bell 505 had some specific requirements.
Helitowcart has adapted both its light duty V900 and its newly released multi-terrain, heavy duty V1000 series for the 505 Jet Ranger X. The Heli-Carrier has a reputation for effortless handling in tight spaces. Compatibility with the 505 makes it a perfect choice for private owners and commercial operators, he said.
The versatility of the Heli-Carrier, which even includes a remote-controlled option, has so far generated sales from Bell 505 customers in Chile, Australia, the United States, United Kingdom, and across Canada. And that might be the tip of the iceberg as Chinese operators begin to take possession of many more.
“We are always improving our products,” said Perron Caissy. For example, Helitowcart is now converting its popular Robinson towcarts to remote-controlled units, he noted. “If a customer has a need, even if it sounds impossible, we’re always willing to look at it. That’s how we have evolved.”
