PA-18 Heavy Duty 1.5 Axle 3-Inch Extended Landing Gear
With CNC-machined attach points and multiple customizable features, Airframes Alaska PA-18 heavy duty landing gear are the strongest, most versatile landing systems for Super Cubs.
Fully customize your heavy duty landing gear setup by choosing from these axle, length, step, and powder coating options:
Maule Oleo Gear
Replacement oleo for standard length Maule gear. With an increased diameter of 1.5" from the standard 1.25" and addition of two internal braces, Airframes Alaska Maule gear have been strengthened to better endure adverse landing conditions. Other than these heavy duty alterations, gear and these oleos have an unchanged layout from the original factory-made Maule setup.
Maule Oleo Spring Pack
All original steel parts have been upgraded to 4130 Chromoly and the end fitting is now a machined piece rather than a tube with a strap welded around it.
