K&M RD-5 Recovery Dolly

K&M’s B-5, an adaptable and easy-to-use 5-ton recovery dolly, is built for maneuvering jets around airports runways and hangars.

Features & Specifications

As with all K&M dollies, the RD-5 model has very user-friendly and practical handling, with wheels that are 360 degrees radially rotatable, resulting in a small wheel load per centimetre. Designed specifically for taxiways, with a platform that can be completely lowered to the ground, the RD-5 ensures a quick rescue within 20 minutes, while minimizing the impact on the aircraft and the dolly. Sinking is prevented, where possible, thanks to 16 twin wheels – 32 in total.
