Locking and Non-Locking Pneumatic Masts
Will-Burt’s extensive line of pneumatic masts are ideal for military situations including 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. Heavy Duty, Super Heavy Duty and Ultra Heavy Duty models have been created for higher payload capacity with a shorter nested height. The Ultra Heavy-Duty mast was specifically designed for mobile communications providing better unguyed performance at lower nested heights – eliminating the need for an expensive tilt system.
Additionally, Will-Burt’s non-locking models provide a light-weight, short-term solution that features high pointing accuracy and long mast life for high performance and dependability. The payload sits on a “cushion of air” enabling it to better absorb shocks for on-the-move applications.
Heavy Duty and Super Heavy Duty models can elevate payloads up to 72 ft. / 22m with a payload capacity of up to 980 lbs. / 445 kg. The Ultra Heavy Duty mast can elevate up to 80 ft. / 24m with a maximum payload capacity of 1,200 lbs. / 544 kg.
