TM 12 Tower

Small Portable Tower

The smallest of our entire mobile trailer tower fleet is the TM-12 open style small mobile tower system.  This lightweight mobile tower unit features five stabilizing outriggers and is a very efficient small mobile tower system when that is all you require.  The efficient small portable tower is simple to deploy and has many of the great features found in our larger mobile trailer tower systems.  The galvanized trailer chassis houses five stabilizing outriggers and offers rapid deployment capability, as well as a small deck to mount accessories for the small portable tower support.

Small Mobile Tower 

The TM-12 small mobile tower system is available with a wide variety of options and accessories and is highly suitable for meteorological tower purposes, test data acquisition, and many other small portable tower requirements.  In comparison, a large jetski trailer is quite similar in size, but not in design.  These small but hearty mobile tower trailers are constructed of tubular structural steel before being hot-dip galvanized, and include our A-frame tongue design with the additional T-bar for added structural integrity of this mobile tower unit.  Complies with DOT Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and will allow licensing in all 50 states. Some of the capabilities of the TM-12 small mobile tower system are as follows:

  • The deck of the mobile tower unit is about 4ft. wide x 16ft. long and able to carry a small radio cabinet to house equipment for use with the small mobile tower.
  • Other available accessories for a complete mobile trailer tower include an Aluma coax reel, spare tire, antenna storage tubes, and portable generators.
  • Small mobile tower options are standard and heavy duty masts, in either 35ft. or 50ft. heights on this mobile tower unit.
  • As a small mobile tower unit that is extremely lightweight it makes transporting these systems easy by most vehicles having a suitable trailer hitch, including SUVs, vans, trucks, and cars.
  • The TM-12 is a small mobile tower trailer that can fit into a transport container, C-130 aircraft, or on a flatbed truck deck for easy transportability.
