Tower Assembly

LMS tower utilizes 2 3/8” OD schedule 40 steel pipe for its 36” base spread, the largest in the industry This creates a much stronger overall tower giving it the ability to hold much larger payloads at the top. Tower has been tested with 900 pounds overall payload. Winch system uses a 3/8” stranded galvanized cable as the primary lifting cable and a ¼” secondary lifting cable for security.

Tower Base Assembly:

LMS has designed a fully functional one piece integrated tower base that is constructed with 4”x 4”‐ 1/4” square tubing. The strength of this base insures the stability of the tower while tilting with heavy loads and stability in high winds when fully extended. The extreme size of the base steel materials keeps the tower from twisting while supporting heavy head loads. Our 9,000lb tilt winch will tilt tower upright with ease, we just overbuild our units for reliability.

LMS trailer is custom designed to be an integrated part of the entire tower system. The main rails under the trailer deck, 8” Ibeam, connect directly to the tower base, giving the entire unit more stability when being used un‐guyed. The outrigger system is designed to provide even stability on all 4 corners of the trailer to keep the tower very still in high winds. The trailer deck is a full 18’ long with equipment mounting spaces on the rear and a very large 9’x 8’ forward deck for large equipment cabinets, generators, toolbox, and fuel storage. Bumper pull trailer is standard with a 2 5/16” ball hitch.


Motor Drive Units

LMS main drive motor is a 1hp wash-down quality unit with direct drive worm gear output with 2 reduction gear boxes for a final reduction of 900 to 1.

The system is designed to be operated by hand with a cordless drill, if necessary, in case of a power or motor failure, or theft.

This unit is also designed to withstand the most severe environmental conditions during operation without failure. The redundant winch system uses 3 cables per section to raise and lower the tower so if you have a failure on one cable, there are 2 to support and operate the tower .
