The LM series of towers are powder coated with glossy blue finish for corrosion resistances and aesthetics. This light mast is mounted to a 12 foot by 5 foot, tandem axle trailer. Constructed of 2" by 3" square tubing and equipped with 8-ply tires, this trailer can be mounted on any 2" ball type receiver hitch. Four retractable outriggers with stabilzer pads allow operators to level the trailer and light mast once the trailer has been deployed, and the outriggers provide additional stabilization during deployment. This trailer is equipped with a 7-pin flat plug for the stop/tail/turn lights. A 44 inch wide and 1/4 inch thick mounting plate is attached to the upper section of the mast which provides a strong and stable platform for the four metal halide fixtures.
The LM family of telescoping towers feature a proprietary mast guidance system, which provide increased stability during high winds. When lowered to 14 feet, the mast can withstand winds up to 125 mph. When elevated to its full upright position, the mast can be rotated a full 360°. By loosening the T-Handle, operators can rotate the mast with easy in either direction. The mast can be positioned in one of four different directions, and locked back in place by re-tightening the T-handle. The mast itself spins freely with easy, and can typically be rotated with a single hand.
This light tower assembly weighs approximately 800 lbs, can easily support and lift 150 lbs fixtures. The entire tower assembly is shipped via common freight carrier or flatbed. Larson Electronics can custom tailor these units to the customer’s requirements with longer sections and larger mounting plates. For example, the LM-30-3S is another model that reaches to a length of 30 feet, with a 14 foot lower section, 12 foot middle section, and a 8 foot upper section and a 4 foot wide upper mounting bracket. We also offer a choice of either the manual 1,000 lbs hand winches included standard or optional electric winches.
Suggested Applications: Temporary lighting, construction sites, and security camera deployment.
