Small Portable Tower

The TM-12 small mobile tower system is available with a wide variety of options and accessories. It is best suited for meteorological tower purposes, test data acquisition, and other jobs that require small, portable units. The rugged TM-12 is constructed of tubular structural steel before being hot-dip galvanized and includes our A-frame tongue design with an additional T-bar for added structural integrity and better towing capability.  This highly portable trailer tower complies with DOT Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and can be licensed in all 50 states with shipping available worldwide. Some of the features of the TM-12 small mobile tower system are as follows:

  • The deck of the mobile tower unit has a 4 ft W x 10 ft L (1.22 m W x 3.05 m L) mounting space and can carry a small equipment cabinet to use with the small mobile tower.
