Military Pneumatic Locking Masts

Will Burt’s locking pneumatic masts are ideal for military communications, elevated testing and mobile radar applications. When a mast deployment is needed for extended periods, locking collars allow the mast to remain extended indefinitely without air pressure.  Guying is optional on Vehicle-mounted heavy-duty locking (HDL) models up to 60 feet (18 meters). Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) heavy-duty models are available. Super heavy-duty locking (SHDL) and ultra heavy-duty locking (UHDL) models feature greater unguyed heights and larger payload capacities. Standard models are shown below. Custom height and payload capacities are available upon request.
