XP Modifications Inc. was founded 1976 by Tom Anderson, an
Alaskan Bush Pilot, machinist and mechanic. XP Modifications is
located at the Arlington Airport in Northwestern Washington.
Anderson's experience as an Alaskan Bush Pilot was responsible
for the development of XP Modification's new XP Tail Wheel.
Riverbeds, tundra, ocean beaches are standard landing and taxiing
areas for Alaskan pilots. Anderson often found that the standard
tail wheel would sink into the soft surface or tear apart on
rough terrain. What was needed was a light weight, larger tire
assembly. XP Modifications Inc., XPM Tail Wheel, features a 500x5
tire mounted on a specially designed assembly that keeps bearings
and key wheel parts up and out of soft sand and mud.
We are also distributors for all XP Modifications products.
