Made in the USA
The LM-20-6.5-5S-SM-EW-E18-RD from Larson Electronics is a skid mount light and equipment tower that provides a safe and effective way for operators to quickly deploy various lighting and equipment, such as LED lights, cameras or speakers, to elevations up to twenty feet. The 44" mast head allows for easy mounting of operator provided equipment that needs to be raised up to 20 feet for optimal use. The light tower features a rotating boom that allows for 360° of rotation, a removable mast head for storing mounted equipment when not in use, 4-corner outriggers for leveling and stabilization, 200` line in cable with manual cord reel management drum, is mounted to a cube frame with skid pockets and 4-corner pick eyes for easy transportation and a choice of either a powder coated or galvanized finish. This skid mount light/equipment tower also features a NEMA 4X control box that has a bleeder valve to reduce moisture build-up inside as well as bottom penetrations to the control box so that no water can seep inside.

The LM-20-6.5-5S-SM-EW-E18-RD five stage telescoping steel light tower with electric winch from Larson Electronics is designed to quickly and safely deploy lights and equipment in locations where an elevated position is needed for maximum area coverage. This light and equipment tower can be extended to 20` for maximum area coverage and collapsed to 6.5` for applications where a footprint smaller is required. The tower is constructed of square steel tubing. The mast is elevated using an included 3,500 lbs electric winch with 3/16" galvanized braided cable.
Skid Tower: The towers and assembly is available in two finish option. Powder coated with glossy blue finish for corrosion resistance and aesthetics or galvanized. Make your selection below when ordering. This mast is bolted onto a 1/8" thick carbon steel plate via six 1/2" anchor bolts. The mast and controls are secured within a cube-style frame constructed of 2" by 2" by 1/8" thick and measuring 48" wide by 48" long by 54.5" tall. Four 4.25` slide out outriggers with 1,200 lbs manual crank leveling jacks allow operators to anchor the unit down, providing stability during deployment. Eight skid pockets allow this unit to be picked up from all four sides, and four-corner pick eyelets allow for stable deployment via crane operation. A 44" mast head is attached to the upper section of the mast which provides a strong and stable platform for lights or other equipment.
The LM family of telescoping towers feature a proprietary mast guidance system, which provide increased stability during high winds. This light plant system can withstand winds up to 125+ mph when lowered to 6.5`, and up to 55 mph when fully extended. 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.

Electric Winch Operation: The LM-20-6.5-5S-SM-EW-E18-RD features a horizontally mounted electric winch to raise the mounted lights or equipment to the 20` maximum elevation point. The horizontally mounted winch features a pulley that allows the winch to operate in the horizontal position. Many similar masts provide "visual indicators" such as a red line on the final stage of the mast to indicate when to stop elevating the mast. If the operator is not paying attention, elevating past this point can cause damage to the mast or possibly fully eject the mast out of the lower stages and potentially cause physical damage to surrounding areas and equipment. Larson Electronics equips their series of electric skid masts with a programmable logic relay to stop the mast from further elevating once the full extended height is reached. This PLR system will not allow an operator to overextend the skid mast in the field, so there is no need to watch for visual indicators and no risk associated with missing and extending past the visual indicator. The winch drum on the LM-20-6.5-5S-SM-EW-E18-RD is outfitted with delrin stops on both sides of the drum. These delrin stops prevent the winch cable from bunching up on one side or the other during cable retrieval as well as helping to keep the cable in place on the drum.
Mast Controls: The mast is operated via push button controls that are externally mounted on the control box exterior. All controls and electronics are housed within an aluminum NEMA 4X control panel. All electrical components are United States and Canada listed and mounted a minimum of 18" above the ground.
Wiring & Cord Cap: This skid mounted LED flood lighting system is equipped with 200 foot of 10/4 chemical and abrasion resistant SOOW cord that is fitted with an industrial grade cord cap for easy connection to local electrical circuits. Cable management is provided via a manual roll up drum mounted within the steel cube frame that provides storage for the 200` power cable when not in use or during storage. Each end of this 200` 10/4 SOOW cable is terminated in L14-20 cord caps. Operators can utilize the build in cord reel to extend electrical power connections when in remote locations electrical connections are up to 200` away, or bypass this cord reel and plug directly into the L14-20P cord cap whip from the panel when the light tower is mounted closer to power sources. This light tower operates on 240V AC. The LM-20-6.5-5S-SM-EW-E18-RD also features weatherproof cord caps on break-aways between the mounted lights or equipment and control box, the electric winch and control box and between the control box and cord reel.
Larson Electronics can custom tailor these units to the customer`s requirements with longer sections and larger mounting plates. For example, the LM-25 is another model that reaches to a length of 25 feet, with a 15 foot lower section and a 10 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. We can equip this mast with 1000W or 1500W Metal Halide lights or a wide variety of high powered LED lights with comparable power, including the LED10WSA-160, LEDLB-200X2E , LEDLB-160X2E or LEDLB-80x2E .
