Selectable Gas Spring Force
Standard gas spring is 70 lbs force. Heavier springs may be optionally specified: 80, 90, 100, 110, 120 or 130 lbs. Gas springs can be easily removed and interchanged by simply transfering the end fitments.
The gas spring is protected inside the main column. It's noteworthy that with many hundreds of units sold over many years of production, not a single Wing Rigger customer has ever reported a gas spring pressure loss.
