TM 12: Small Mobile Tower

Small Portable Tower

The smallest of our entire trailer tower fleet is the TM-12 open style mobile system. The small, lightweight unit features five stabilizing outriggers and is a very compact yet effective mobile tower. This durable and time-tested small portable tower is user-friendly and simple to deploy with many of the great features found in our larger mobile trailer tower systems. The galvanized trailer chassis features sliding outriggers and offers rapid deployment capability, as well as a small deck to mount accessories to support your mobile tower needs.

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 rugged 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 and better towing capability.  Complies with DOT Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations and will allow licensing in all 50 states with shipping available worldwide. 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 10ft. long (4ft. wide x 5 ft. long mounting space) and able to carry a small radio cabinet to house equipment for use with the small mobile tower.
  • Other available accessories include an Aluma coax reel, spare tire, antenna storage tubes, solar power systems, storage boxes, and portable generators.
  • Available tower options include heights of 17, 35, and 50 feet, in standard duty, heavy-duty, and extra heavy-duty capacities.
  • This small mobile tower unit is extremely lightweight and can be easily transported by any vehicle having a suitable trailer hitch, including SUVs, vans, trucks, cars, and ATVs.
  • Due to the compact size and low weight of the TM-12 mobile tower, multiple units can easily be transported in Conex cargo containers, C-130 or larger aircraft, or via flatbed truck decks across the globe.
  • Model options available include TM-12, TM-12HD and TM-12UG.
