The model 4100 is the perfect tool for self loading smaller wheel assemblies primarily found on light aircraft. The extreme angle of the handle allows for maximum clearance from body parts and fender covers. Hand operation enables you to easily use directly under wings where pedal operation would be more difficult.
The Model 4100 can handle wheel weights up to 1025 pounds, tires ranging from 7 1/2 to 22 inches in diameter and widths up to 7 inches wide. The built in linear ratchet provides smooth and controlled lifting and lowering of tires. The unit uses four, 3 inch double ball raceway casters and is available in right and left hand configurations.

It's bright color and integrated flag reminds you to remove before flight. The rubber cushions ensure that your finish will be protected. They are lightweight and portable. Perfect for carrying in the plane wherever you go.

Wings & Wheels adjustable height, light weight wing stand kit
* uncut these are tall enough for assembly aids for many tall high wing gliders and some tow seaters that require very tall stands.
wingstandnew2.jpg (118770 bytes)When the builder of our original wing stand kits finally decided to retire it became necessary to look for a new alternative. After seeing carpenter tools, high school band sheet music stands and even step ladders with carpet stapled to the tops it became obvious that something better had to be found before too many wings were sent to early graves from suddenly being dropped and damaged. Even wing stands supplied from trailer and some glider manufacturers were too flimsy and were less than satisfactory.

wingstandnew2tall.jpg (101157 bytes)The new stand from W&W is simple but study, light weight and folds up nicely for compact storage. Offered complete and ready to use or for far less cost  the W&W wing stand kit can be assembled  for nearly 1/2 the cost in less than an hour with simple hand tools and detailed and illustrated instruction sheet supplied.

Admittedly, not everyone wants to spend the time building and some just don’t have the skill or tools to build their own stands from scratch. The stands
supplied in the W&W Kit  require only some simple modification to serve as good wing stands. Aswingstandnewknockdown.jpg (134988 bytes) supplied the stand has no top plate and they are far too tall for most glider assembly so they need some modification. Cutting the legs, center posts and support beams plus some re-drilling of bolt placement as outlined in the supplied instructions can be accomplished by most builders in less than an hour. I’ve done some the work for you and even added a top board with foam pad already installed. These stands adjust for height from just over 3’ to nearly 5 feet high!) and have a quick-pin to hold them in addition to the tightening knob. Completed stands are suitable for most wing weights (I put my over 200 pound weight on these to test) Legs fold and top lifts off for storage.
You do the work and save $70.00! Lightweight, adjustable height wing stand kit

Wing Wheel

The Wing wheel consists of adjustable wing holder compound of three fiberglass parts connected together by steel band and from aluminum swinging fork with fiberglass spring and 16 inch wheel. The fork with the spring provides the suspension and restrains shocks from the ground. All three fiberglass parts of the wing holder are covered with smooth black adhesive foam and are painted with polyester gelcoat ensuring long operating lifetime. All steel parts are zinc galvanized and aluminum parts anodized to ensure good anticorrosive protection.
The wing holder attaches at the wing from the leading edge side after undoing of the closing lock. After the proper locating at the wing fasten the closing locks, the holder will pull together. Drive slow and carefully when towing the glider (max 10kmph, 7mph)! The wing wheel should be adjusted for some types of gliders before first use.
The wing holder chord length and thickness can be changed after your request between 48 - 60cm deep and 12 - 19% thickness. Also the height of the fork is adjustable between 75-90cm. This wing wheel is really universal!

Towing Bars
Tow bar allows you to tow the glider by a car equipped with the ISO-50 ball towing connection. We have elegant solution both for light or heavy gliders. For heavy gliders we consider: gliders with water ballast with MTOW over 525kg, two-seaters, open class, self starting powered gliders.
 The system intended for heavy gliders doesn't lift the tail of the glider, it only pulls/pushes and steers the direction, the glider rides on the tail dolly. The towing bar connects to the tail dolly by robust steel tube hinge with closing lock. To mount/dismount the towing bar, simply raise it up to the angle of 45° and pull out from the tail dolly hinge.

For Light Gliders

Towing bar allows you to tow the glider by a car equipped with the ISO-50 ball towing connection. We have elegant solution both for light or heavy gliders. For heavy gliders we consider: gliders with water ballast with MTOW over 525kg, two-seaters, open class, self starting powered gliders.
For other gliders as club class or standard class gliders you can use the light towing bar.  The Towing bar for light gliders is connected to the tail dolly and bears the tail of the glider for the tail wheel or tail skid.
The towing bar hooks to the prolonged dolly wheel axle by two hooks. The tail wheel or tailskid holds in a steel holder, whose position and height is easily adjustable for any glider.
The installation is very easy and safe. Our Towing bar is made mainly of anodized hardened aluminum, the weight is only 4,5Kg. Its design enables to fold it to small dimensions when not in use. All parts needed for adjustment of the tail wheel holder are shipped with the towing bar, as well as the new prolonged dolly axle with nuts and all other needed parts.

With more than 50 gliders using this item, the most appreciated feature is the lightweight construction and possibility of adjustment.

Towing Bar - Heavy Gliders




The towing bar is telescopic and can be shortened for transport very quickly and easily. Just push the lock button and push together. The towing bar is mainly made of anodized aluminum, the force parts are made of zinc-galvanized steel.
 Tail dolly has to be modified before use - simply screw a metal sheet with hinge tube between the dolly body and dolly wheel. This part is, of course, included in the price.
100's of this type in use today! The positive feedbacks were also for the lightweight design and easy connection to the glider (You don't have to heave the tail of heavy gliders).
