Biltbest crank

A quick learner from United States says:

I saw on the net someone inquiring about biltbest parts. Do h u have access to the crank I've attached? It's a narrowish longish casement window that locks on the left ( as your standing) and cranks from the right side in the middle.

Thanks, Mark

Is your window a casement window?

If so, you may want to take a look at the Swisco 39-013 Wood Window Operator, 13 1/2". Also, you will want to replace the track, see the Swisco 11-3/8" EntryGard Track, 4 Hole. Lastly, you may need a new handle. Take a look at the 39-114L and 39-205 handles.

Keep in mind, in addition to replacing your other hardware you may need to replace the wooden sill cover.

A quick learner says:
Does it matter that this is an awning type window rather than casement?

Mike from SWISCO responded:
Yes, it does matter in this case. You will have to use an awning window operator. Unfortunately, we currently do not offer a replacement operator for your application at this time.

We will post an update on the discussion board if more information becomes available.

A contractor from New Jersey says:
I'm looking for a suitable replacement (left and right) operator for a Biltbest crank/casement operator.

The arm is 11". Can you suggest a replacement

Thanks,

Robert

Hello Robert.

Please take a look at the image and responses above. You'll see that we recommend the Swisco 39-013 Wood Window Operator, 13 1/2". You may also want to consider replacing the track and operator crank handle.
