Manually extended telescopic mast for field or vehicle mounting. The PU or Push Up mast is a lightweight tactical telescopic communications mast which is man portable for rapid field use and can also be vehicle mounted. Unlike our other telescopic masts the PU mast does not use air to extend, it is manually extended with a unique cross pin providing the section locking.
The PU Mast is made from lightweight, high strength, anodised aluminium tube. The standard kit consists of 8 tube sections with a range of heights from 5m to 11.7m. The PU mast is rapidly set up using a set of lower field guys (in red) and extended manually section by section, locking each section with a cross pin, until the desired extended height is reached. The pins are kept in a handy collar on the mast itself for easy use.
The mast top fitting is our standard 24mm diameter socket with quick clamp fitting. To retract the mast the pins are unlocked and taken out a section at a time, sections lower gently with "air cushion" effect for safety. The standard set up time for a PU mast with 2 people is 10 minutes including picket driving and antenna fitment.
If the mast requires insulation from ground, an optional rubber cup can be fitted into the base. The antenna can be rotated using the antenna rotator Cat No 6508.
Accessories are supplied painted to match the mast. NATO green.
