If you are in general aviation or even private air charter you have to get your airplane cleaned and maintenance performed. You may opt to do have a shop do it or you may do some yourself if allowed. Often times you will need to get access under the wing or engine cowling. A shop creeper is what you need but if you go to your auto-parts store your only doing to find one that is flat. This is where Aerocreeper™ comes in.
Aerocreeper™ – A New Adjustable Shop Creeper Solution
Basically the existence of an adjustable incline back for a shop creeper is non-extistant. SnapOn used to make one at a certain point but currently not available. Try looking for a shop creeper that has an adjustable incline back and that you can adjust the hight of the entire shop creeper. We have not found one yet, until… We found that Aerocreeper™ offers these options.
The unboxing! We recently ordered one for our customer. The Aerocreeper™ was shipped promptly and arrived in good shape. The box felt much heavier then expected but soon realized this is due to the heavy duty construction. It can hold up to 350 pounds! Everything felt sturdy and the use of rollers on the adjustable mechanism was a nice touch. This shows the quality and makes for ease of use.
“This shows the quality…”
While we are no shop creeper engineers there are some initial thoughts that we at Thank You Aviation had. It would be nice if the seat portion also inclined as the back inclined. This is similar to bench press workout machine style but for a shop creeper there may be some technical limitations to that. Secondly, it would be nice if a gas strut was an option to raise and lower the Aerocreeper™. But can imagine this might take it out of an affordable price range. Overall these are just personal preference and the Aerocreeper™ works flawlessly as it is.
In summary the Aerocreeper™ is exactly what it is advertised to be. A functionally well built shop creeper that can be used for limitless applications in aviation and can save your back and knees. If you are interested in purchasing, Aerocreeper™ has them available on their web store or you can buy directly from Thank You Aviation.
Great write up! I have been looking for a mechanics creepers that is adjustable and now going to try this one.
