TWIN COMMANDER 500 AIRCRAFT JACK MOUNTS
« on: May 28, 2018, 12:08:27 pm »
I am looking for the nose and wing mounts for the jacks so I can lift my 500A and do a gear swing. Anyone have any idea where to find them or what they look like so I can manufacture them myself?
Please email me at bobby@caribbeanexport.com

does it require a nose jack?  I figured all Commanders only required two wing jacks and you tied the tail down to jack against?

Glenn,
That is why you are a hero member and I am a newbie. One day soon I will know something about my darn 500A and will hopefully join the class of whatever comes after Newbie.
I got my jack mounts and lifted the plane only to remember that I need a hydraulic mule too.
The search for a mule and knowledge continues into 2019

I think Glenn is awol from this site. He must be having too much fun with the beech 18.

Check with Tronair. They make very nice ground support equipment. I bought a set of there wing jacks for my 210 and paid for them the first year when we were able to do annuals in my hangar.

Thanks Eric.
He had responded to my ill typed request for wing and nose jacks only to find out that there is no nose jack. Just wing mains and tail tiedown

I found one in my neighbors hangar that I can borrow. I had priced them out on Tronair but they are crazy expensive. I was just going to buy a reversible pump and use that. I still may do that anyway but Im out from under the gun on necessity now.

Hangar neighbors are almost always a good thing to have... especially when they happen to have what you need 8)

You also don't have to have a mule and can remove plugs from an engine and just use it to crank up gear.
