This stand (with engine) can be shipped on the lower deck of A340 Aircraft. The engine pins securely into place quickly and easily. A document container is secured to the cradle for all manuals, documents, and miscellaneous engine components. A shipping cover is included with the stand. The engine support arms are removable and stored on the base frame to allow empty stands to be stacked. The stand or connected stands are forkliftable from either side. Optional bumpers attach to the forward and aft of the base to prevent unwanted contact with the engine.
