Larson Electronics Releases 600-Watt High-Intensity LED Skid Mount Five-Stage Light Mast



Kemp, Texas — Industrial lighting specialist Larson Electronics has announced the release of a 600-watt skid mount five-stage electric light mast.

This tower features a rotating boom that allows for 360 degrees of rotation, a removable mast head, and a cube frame with skid pockets with four-corner pick eyes for easy transportation.

The LM-30-8-5S-4X150RT-LED-EW-SM telescoping steel light mast with electric winch is designed to quickly and safely deploy 600 watts of intense LED lighting in locations where elevated illumination is needed for maximum area coverage.

This mast is equipped with four 150-watt LED lamps that produce a wide spread of intense white light, allowing this unit to effectively cover large work areas with high-quality illumination. This light boom can be extended to 30 feet for maximum area coverage, collapsed to 8.83 feet, and is constructed of square steel tubing in different dimensions for each section.

The mast is elevated using an included 3,500-pound electric winch with 3/16 inch galvanized braided cable. The light heads on this tower are wet-area-suitable high-output LED fixtures that produce a combined total of about 50,000 lumens at 600 watts. These lamps have a copper-free aluminum alloy body that is powder coated for added durability and aesthetics.

The 30-foot tower and assembly is powder coated with a glossy blue finish for corrosion resistance and aesthetics. The mast is bolted onto a 1/8 inch thick carbon steel plate via six 1/3 inch anchor bolts. 

Eight skid pockets allow this unit to be picked up from all four sides, and four-corner eyelets allow for stable deployment via crane operation. A 44-inches wide and 2-by-2-by-¼-inch thick mounting plate is attached to the upper section of the mast, providing a strong and stable platform for the four LED fixtures. The mast is operated via push button switches within the cube frame, allowing operators to raise or lower the mast with the push of a button. Wiring is provided by 200 feet of 14/3 SOOW cable within a manual roll-up cord reel and terminated in a 20 amp 5-20 straight blade plug.

“This new design of our already popular light masts provides operators with a more mobile solution of lighting,” said Rob Bresnahan with “We have incorporated a cube frame with skid pockets so that these masts can stand alone versus mounting them to a stable foundation.”  

Larson Electronics carries an extensive line of LED light towers, portable power distributions, explosion proof lights for hazardous locations, portable work lights, and industrial-grade LED area lights. For more information, visit
