Larson Electronics has added to its extensive range of industrial grade lighting equipment with the release of the LM-50-5S a five-stage 50-foot telescoping light mast. This light tower features a fold-over assembly, a rotating boom that allows for 360 degrees of rotation and a removable mast head for storing mounted equipment when not in use.
The LM-50-5S provides a safe and effective way for operators to quickly deploy lights, security cameras and other equipment to elevations up to 50 feet. This light boom can be extended to a height of 50 feet for effective coverage and collapsed to 13 feet. The tower is constructed of square steel tubing with a base section 11 feet in length and 6-by-6-by-3/16-inch thick with a top section that is 11 feet in length and 2-by-2-by-1/18-inches thick. Each section of the mast has a 15- to 18-inch overlap. The mast is elevated from its folding position with a 2,500-pound hand winch that is fitted with 3/16-inch cable. A second 2,500 pound hand winch provides the 13 to 50-foot elevation of the mast. 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-by-18-by-3/8-inch thick mounting base plate which has been predrilled to accept six 1/2-inch anchor bolts. A 44-inch wide and 1/8-inch-thick mounting plate is attached to the upper section of the mast which provides a strong and stable platform for lights or equipment. When lowered to 13 feet, the mast can withstand winds up to 125 miles per hour. The light tower weighs approximately 1300 pounds and can easily support and lift 150 pounds of weight. The light tower is shipped standard with two manual hand winches but is offered with optional electric winches for ease of operation.
