Jet Engine Transportation System – Weatherproof Transporter
RS&H designed, built, and delivered the outdoor transporter. It will carry a fully-loaded indoor engine transporter, with engine, between buildings. It was designed for year-round use to protect the cargo during outdoor moves in all weather conditions.
The outdoor engine transporter is self-driven using a hydrostatic drive and propane fuel. It was designed with a heated operator cab and a completely enclosed cargo area to provide a weatherproof environment for the indoor transporter and engine. The requirements called for no ramp to be used to load the engine and cart into the outdoor transporter. To solve this problem, RS&H incorporated a four-point hydraulic lifting system in conjunction with a floating floor to properly support the load while maintaining a weatherproof enclosure.
