No, simply adjust the pins so that your tire sinks down deep into the nest area just enough so that your tail wheel does not fall thru just like the directions strongly indicate and you will be more than fine. However, if you have an unusually steep or odd condition, be sure to contact us just to make sure there's not a problem.
Simple, the -2 is a wider unit, hosting Picker pins on both the left & right side of the frame instead of just one side like the -1. This gives you the ability to have (2) set-ups for multiple aircraft in one hangar and therefore Pick up any combination of two tail wheel sizes without making any further adjustments.
Nope..., The team designed it so that does not matter.
Yep, now you can make a simple adjustment that fits your own personal preference and that problem goes away for ever.
Yes, but it's harder and more durable than any "paint" you could ever apply, and it looks fantastic.
Trust us, it's all in the way the design was engineered. We recommend...: " a flat hard surface " for these extreme situations.
Yes, that's the advantage of our product..., it never again matters how new or old or worn the tire is anymore.... It Will " FIT " and you have the control of the fit in how you want it to. You can now " DIAL IT IN " the way you want.
Yes, absolutely both pushing & pulling
Yes..., your answer to this tough question is now very simple. Purchase the infamous PICKER-2. Yep, this awesome tow bar has now "Set The Bar" for the industry with price & performance, and we intend on keeping it that way. This beauty will do the trick. Our -2 has been uniquely engineered by a former tail-dragger pilot and tool designer for handling this challenging situation, and others as well. There was a VOID in the market, so we decided fill it.
Yes, just see the last couple pictures in the gallery or click the gallery arrows on the LEFT side of the window.
Simple, over the years I have spoke with thousands of pilots and you wouldn't believe how many deal with less than perfect conditions just trying to push their planes out of the hangar..., when I asked them what they would prefer..., all of them basically described the BUSH PICKER-2B, so I thought it should be available to own.
Oh my, where do I begin... Okay, let's just say for a powered taildragger aircraft that you can get into and fly..., my answer would be... the smallest available up to a 15-inch "diameter" / 6-inch "wide" tire (left to right). They can even handle a 450 horse power Stearman as well which can weigh about 4,000 pounds or more. So, that pretty much covers most aircraft in general aviation.
Wow.. we are humbled, and thankful..., so many people have been asking, so maybe sometime in 2015. Check back and also they may even be listed on Aircraft Spruces website when they hit the market
Again, wow..., okay, we have so many things to bring to the table this year, so we will try to get that rolling as well. Thank you again Ted for your business and for your support.
Yes we do..., Thank for asking, copy these into your browser's address bar.
