NL Series Telescopic Pneumatic Masts

The NL Series of pneumatic telescopic masts (Hilomast) has a base section diameter of 127mm and is pneumatically operated by air compressor. The shorter models in this series can be easily operated by a manual footpump.

Being heavier than the NK Series they will support larger head loads under more adverse weather conditions. Although these masts can be used for portable applications, they are primarily designed for vehicle installation, either bracketed to the rear, or mounted through the vehicle roof.

Models NL16 and NL22 can be mounted onto the roof of a vehicle in a sliding carriage. The carriage slides rearwards and the mast is then tilted and clamped in the vertical position. Masts NL8, NL12 and NL22 have a top section diameter of 50mm for attaching the head load. Masts NL9, NL10 and NL16 have a top spigot of 50mm diameter x 130mm long.

The table of masts below is only a small selection of possible mast configurations. Due to the modular design of all Hilomast pneumatic masts we are able to offer masts in custom sizes, with or without locking collars, and in various colours and finishes.
