Carousel systems are the preferred multiple-drop delivery system for helicopter external loadwork, and our new SPIDER® Carousel has been designed to work with our TALON® Carousel Hooks. The SPIDER Carousel can be configured in the field with your choice of four, six or eight independently releasable load points, as desired.

The SPIDER Carousel will be available for purchase later this fall. In the meantime, if you have any questions about the SPIDER Carousel, please contact us for more information.

System Benefits

  • Built Tough for Low Maintenance — Rugged cage protects your hooks from above and below. The durable, high-visibility epoxy paint finish makes it easy to spot from the ground and gives you years of duty in the field.
  • Buy What You Need — Start off with a 4-Hook configuration and buy additional Spider Spoke Updgrade Kits and TALON Carousel Hooks as needed. Alternatively, if you already have TALON Carousel Hooks, you can buy just the SPIDER Carousel.
  • Quick Installation — Uses existing long line power set-up. Ability to quickly add or remove hooks from the controller.
  • Numbered Hooks — Large numbers on top of each hook help the ground crew place the proper load on each hook and assist the pilot with load drop coordination.
  • Easy Stowage — Flexible cables make it easy to store in your hanger until needed.
  • Simple Switch Controller — The solid state switching device is operated from the cockpit with two buttons: Drop and Reset. Depressing the Reset button for one second resets the controller to Hook #1. Depressing the Drop button for one second opens the hook. Depressing both buttons for two seconds simultaneously opens all hooks (auto-dump feature).
