TM 51-35: Mobile Trailer Tower

Aluma has decades of proven experience as a premier supplier of mobile trailer tower systems. The 51-35 aluminum crank-up towers fall right in line with all of our quick deploy antenna system units.  Providing quality aluminum crank-up towers on an open trailer platform to make an efficient mobile trailer tower has been Aluma’s strong suit for more than 40 years.

Mobile Trailer Tower

Our 51-35 mobile trailer tower can be paired with any of our larger aluminum crank-up towers.  Being similar to our 51-20 trailer, except having dual axles and a higher payload capacity, along with street type tires, the 51-35 trailer is ideal for quick deploy antenna system requirements. All Aluma manufactured trailers can be identified with a MIL-STD-130 UID label.

Aluminum Crank-Up Towers

This platform can handle a larger radio cabinet, genset, and various accessories and options. When combined with one of our aluminum crank-up towers, including our 100 foot (30 meter) heavy-duty model or our 50 foot (15 meter) extreme-duty model towers, it will provide a substantial mobile trailer tower system.

With ample deck space and excellent highway towing ability, this quick deploy antenna system makes for a reliable mobile trailer tower that comes equipped with one of our many aluminum crank-up towers. Built-in the same fashion as all of our other mobile trailer tower packages, these aluminum crank-up towers will provide decades of reliable capabilities as a quick deploy antenna system.  Additional details include the following:

  • The deck measures 5ft. 6in. x 16ft. 11in. and provides adequate space for most equipment and accessories.
  • This unit can handle mid-sized generators and fuel tanks, along with radio cabinets and storage boxes.
  • Outfitted with most any of our guyed tower assemblies, this model provides great “bang for your buck” when needing a solid, transportable communications tower.
  • A ½ ton pickup or larger is recommended for towing these units, which are ideal for on-road and highway traveling.
  • Detailed specifications for this particular unit can be found in the table shown below.
