The LM-SMWB-HLM40-200LB equipment tower is a self-contained tower package. This unit operates on 120/240V single phase, 240V/120 three phase or 208Y/120 three phase and includes a hydraulic telescoping light mast which can elevate up to 200 pounds of equipment to heights up to 40`. Equipped with auto retract for automated management of the mast and an anchor for robust stability during deployment, this mobile tower package is ideal for large scale event illumination, construction, mining, industrial operations, and anywhere a mobile full power lighting system capable of extended operation is needed.
This telescoping seven stage hydraulic equipment mast from Larson Electronics is designed to allow operators to quickly and safely deploy up to 200 pounds of lights, cameras, antennas and other equipment tp heights up to 40`. This light boom can be collapsed to 12` for applications where a footprint smaller is required. The tower is constructed of heat treated aluminum tubing with 2.69` foot of overlap per section. The mast is elevated using an included hydraulic ram and extended to its full height using a second hydraulic system.
A 44" (1/4" thick) steel mast head is attached to the upper section of the mast which provides a strong and stable platform for up to 200lbs of equipment.
Telescoping Boom: The hydarulic telescoping boom is constructed of heat treated aluminum with a powder coated finish and extends up to 40`. This boom is raised from and lowered to the folded position by a single hydraulic ram and extended or retracted by a second hydraulic system.
Auto Retract: To prevent damage and shaking from strong winds during operation, this equipment tower is equipped with a robust wind monitoring system. When exposed to strong winds, such as 40 mph, the system automatically retracts the mast for safe operation. In a retracted state, operators must re-adjust the height of the mast back to its original height (or another preferred height). This cutting-edge feature is designed to improve safety at industrial work sites.
This tower can withstand 35 mph winds before auto retract when fully extended, with standard guy wires to the outriggers. When guy wires are applied 60 feet out from the side of the trailer, the tower can withstand 50 mph winds before auto retract. When auto retract is activated, operators must send the mast back to its original position or preferred height setting.
Wiring/Controls: The LM-SMWB-HLM40-200LB is equipped with a 125A main breaker panel to connect incoming line-in power. The hydraulics and battery charger are also powered from within this breaker box. The mast elevation is controlled by a push button switch to operate the hydraulic ram allowing operators to raise the mast to the upright position. The vertical deployment is operated by a second push button switch allowing operators to extend it to its full 40` height or retract it to the collapsed height.
Voltage Options: The LM-SMWB-HLM40-200LB is available in several voltage configurations including 120/240V single phase, 240V/120 three phase or 208Y/120 three phase. Please make your selection below when ordering.
Skid Mount: The entire unit is mounted onto a large skid mount system for incorporating all of the necessary lighting equipment/components in one, readily available package. This skid mount includes a front mounted storage area for stowing tools and accessories. The skid mount is finished in industrial grade Dupont™ paint for protection against rust and corrosion and provides an attractive finish. Overall dimensions of the entire mounting system and boom assembly in the stowed for travel configuration is 12` long by 5.7` wide. Pickeyes located at every corner of the unit are available for transporting via crane lift or air transport in remote locations.
Six 7,000 lbs hand crank jacks are used for raising the unit up off the ground, and hand crank jacks mounted on extending outriggers are used for leveling and stabilizing the assembly. Each of the jacks are attached to a pivoting outrigger. The jacks can be leveled by hand crank or attachment provided for power drills. A total of eight outriggers can be extended 4` out from the side of the unit for added stability. Custom builds can be provided for higher wind speed resistance when fully raised.
An anchor at the bottom of the skid provides stability, which can be deployed to a concrete pad.
We offer a choice of finishing, equipped light heads, and with or without gensets. These towers can be fitted with Larson Electronics line of high output light heads, or customize the mast head to meet the mounting requirements for your equipment. Optional diesel generators and fuel cells can be equipped from factory, or retrofitted after purchase.
Cold Weather Package: The LM-SMWB-HLM40-200LB is designed to withstand extreme cold environments and harsh winters. The hydraulic system is equipped with a de-icing system to prevent the hydraulic lines and system from freezing from moisture building within system. This de-icing system uses an environmentally friendly (non-toxic) fluid. All hydraulic lines are equipped with cold weather rated hydraulic hoses rated for -65°C and fitted with metallic hardware. All the hydraulic controls are housed within an insulated and weather tight enclosure. This hydraulic control box features 1/2" thick polystyrene foam insulation and heat trace.
The hydraulic system features -65°C cold weather rated rubber hydraulic hoses with metallic fittings and a cold weather rated high viscosity hydraulic fluid. The battery system that powers the hydraulic system features a cold weather rated sealed acid glass mat 12 volt battery wrapped in a heated battery blanket. A cold weather rated battery charger keeps the 12 volt battery charged. All battery components are enclosed within a NEMA 3R housing. All electrical components are wired using cold weather rated SOOW cable with rated to -50°C that features high flexibility, and extreme abrasion, acid, oil, and water resistance even in sub-zero climates.
Suggested Applications: Temporary lighting, construction site illumination, outdoor event lighting, job site lighting and any other application that requires a self-contained source of illumination capable of covering a very large area effectively.
