V1060 series - HeliCarrier for Wheeled Helicopters
Get a Quote
The HeliCarrier V1060 series device was created to tow helicopters equipped with wheeled undercarriage. These machines are designed to handle helicopters by lifting and carrying the helicopter nose wheel.
The V1060s are an addition to the powerful V1000 Heli-Carrier series. The units offer great flexibility as they can perform tight radius turns for precise helicopter positioning.
Aiming for versatility, these carriers can serve more than 35 helicopter types (see compatibility page) as well as planes such as the King Air and light jets.
Also Available : « Combi » for Skids & Wheels
The V1060 Combi models allow using the same HeliCarrier for skidded and wheeled helicopters.

We determine the appropriate attachment strap or hook according to the helicopter types for each fleet. For Twin Nose Wheels we usually supply straps (included with carrier), but we can also add a Strap Hook if desired. For Single Nose Wheels we add a Tow Bar Type Hook specific to helicopter.
For specific needs we are open to develop custom adapters for attachment and/or bucket configurations. Contact us.
Pulling Helicopter Into Bucket
Multiple models to best suit your needs.
Skidded and Wheeled
A combination of the V1060 and V1020 or V1022 with bucket, attachement arms and longer legs. Providing compatibility with both wheeled helicopters and skidded helicopters.
Fits best under helicopters with lower underbellies or fitted with accessories such as antennas.
A combination of the V1060 and V1062. Keeping the smaller support wheels of the V1060 to roll easily under low underbellies, and using the very large traction wheel and three times more powerful traction motor of the V1062 to roll over challenging terrain.
Oil Platform Landing Net
All large pneumatic wheels to roll on tough landing nets along with corresponding extra powerful traction wheel motor needed for such demanding task.
Wheel type, wheel size and corresponding traction motor capability are the main variances from one model to another.

20" x 8" (51 x 20cm)
|Hydraulic Pump:||Gear pump. Max. 4500 lbs (1590kg)
8.5.c.c. per rev. High flow pump for faster speed.
|Oil Tank:||Large Oil tank for 100% Duty Cycle. Greater oil quantity helps maintain low temperature and thus lowers energy consumption|
|Drive Motor:||Using only 4 hp of the 20 hp. availble / up to 10 kw capacity / 48 volts / fan cooled continuous use 80% duty cycle motor.|
|Electrical System:||48v DC Motor / 12v valve driver / 24v to APU (option).|
|Converter:||48v-to-12v Converter added to ensure batteries discharge equally. Prevents uneven long term battery performance.|
|Batteries:||Carrier requires 4 x 12 volts Deep Cycle Batteries (size: Group 27) Our model: BAGM27 absorbed glass mat (AGM).|
|Autonomy:||Varies with oil pressure setting, traction motor model, helicopter weight & surface condition 10 hangaring-cycles of approx x 500'(150m)|
|Battery Charger:||Included. 115/230v / 18 amps.|
|Hydraulic Traction Wheel Motor:||1200 lbs Pull Capacity @ 3000 psi||3000 lbs Pull Capacity @ 3000 psi|
|Slope Brake System:||Hydraulic lock valve ensures controlled speed on slopes & curtails free rolling when machine is not in function|
|Operation:||Right hand grip slider button controls low speed horizontal movement. Left hand grip slider button controls vertical movement. For extra safety: Fast speed requires holding both grips. Index finger on left hand grip activates fast speed mode.|
|Turn Radius:||Capability to perform very tight turns. Direction wheels has 200° rotation range. Ideal for tight space.|
