This is an Engine Dolly used to move aero-engines around the assembly facility and under Handling Specialty's custom four-post engine lifts for on and offloading. The unpowered version of the dolly includes a hydraulic hook-up; enabling the support arms to allow the engine to enter the dolly, which then holds the engine in place.
In order to move the dolly, a towbar assembly is included which can attach to multiple forklifts.
This unit is also available as an MGV - manually guided vehicle system - with control panels on board for a more automated experience. This allows the unit to travel through assembly operations at the will of the operator, who uses a handheld control. When the unit requires charging or planned maintenance the MGV is easily parked away from the assembly floor.
