Utility equipment: Larson Electronics has announced the release of a 14-ft. telescoping light mast with 360 degree rotating capabilities. The LM-14-8-FM-500LB is a telescoping two stage steel light mast that provides a safe and effective way for operators to quickly deploy lights, security cameras and other equipment to elevations of 14 ft.
The LM-14-8-FM-500LB features a 500-lb. max payload rating, a rotating boom that allows for 360 degree of rotation and a removable mast head for storing mounted equipment when not in use. This light boom can be extended to a height of 14 feet for effective coverage and collapsed to 8 feet. The mast is elevated to its full height with a 2,000 lb. hand winch that is fitted with 3/16 in. cable. The 360 degree rotation is provided by a single T-Handle. By loosening the T-Handle, operators can rotate the mast with ease in either direction. It can be locked into place once the desired position is found by tightening the T-Handle. These light masts are typically mounted to trailers or other stable surfaces by an 18 in. by 18 in., 3/8 in. thick mounting baseplate which has been predrilled to accept six 9/16 in. anchor bolts. A 44 in. wide and 3 in. by 3 inch by 14 in. thick mounting plate is attached to the upper section of the mast which provides a strong and stable platform for lights or equipment. The mast can withstand winds up to 125 miles per hour, weighs approximately 725 lbs. and can easily support and lift 500 lbs. of weight.
“The LM-14-8-FM-500LB offers a fast and secure solution to elevate equipment up to 14 feet,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larsonelectronics.com. “We can custom tailor these units to the customer’s requirements with longer sections and larger mounting plates if desired.”
