MOBILE TUBULAR TOWERS
MOBILE LATTICE TOWERS
VEHICLE MOUNTED MASTS
Allows for antennas up to 10sq.ft. in 50mph winds. The MA-40 and 550 models come standard with flat base, two 1/2" x 10" anchor bolts, eve-mount bracket and 4' rotor mast. No guying is required when tower is properly bracketed to the eve of your roof. MA-Series towers are completely self-supporting only when used with accessory MARB or MAB Series bases. The MARB Series rotor base allows the entire tower and antenna to be rotated from the base (rotor not included). This provides for easy rotor maintenance plus emergency band rotation of the entire tower and antenna. The MA-55OMDP, 770MDP and 850MDP models include a heavy duty motor drive with positive pull down. The MDP models provide motorized raising and lowering of the tower. Models without motor drives come standard with manual hand winches which have load actuated brakes for maximum safety.
MA-Series Windloading ratings based on IBC 2006 (TIA/EIA-222-F) at 76mph and 90mph 3-second gusts:
• MA-40 : 3.0 sq. ft.
• MA-550: 1.4 sq. ft.
• MA-770: 1.0 sq. ft. at 85mph
Minimum retracted height of 11' 4" (may vary, depending on rotor) and max height of 47' including mast. When retracted, visual impact is reduced to a minimum and antenna servicing is easier. Tower and antenna are typically below the roof line of your home when fully retracted. These lightweight towers should provide many years of trouble-free service. All of our towers have a hot-dipped galvanized finish inside and out. The TMM-433SS and 541SS have a 10" top section permitting installation of a Yeasue G800 rotor inside the top section. Oversized rotors will prevent full retraction of your tower however they may be used if full retraction is not required. TMM Series towers include anchor bolts, rotor plate, hinged T-base, load actuated winch, and 8' of 2 OD x .120 antenna mast.
TMM-Series Windloading ratings based on IBC 2006 (TIA/EIA-222-F) at 76mph and 90mph 3-second gusts:
• TMM-433SS: 20.7 sq. ft.
• TMM-433HD: 31.8 sq. ft.
• TMM-541SS: 18.8 sq. ft.
TX Series towers have 21' sections with 4' overlap to provide extra height and strength. The overlap helps prevent binding while lowering the tower in high wind. The TX Series towers have a 12½" top section, permitting installation of most rotors inside the section for maximum strength while allowing the section to fully retract. Cross-bracing at critical points on the tower ensure safety and additional strength. Hot dipped galvanized finish both inside and out. Comes with rotor plate, steel anchor bolts and a heavy-duty steel T-base allowing the tower to hinge for easy installation. T-bases accept the TRX Series raising fixtures for easy one-man installation. Fulton hand winches included (except MDP and MDLP models) featuring automatic load actuated brakes for maximum safety. TX-472MDP comes complete with MDP-750 motor drive with positive pulldown feature. TX-489MDPL includes the MDPL-1000 motor drive and level wind feature.
TX-Series Windloading ratings based on IBC 2006 (TIA/EIA-222-F) at 76mph and 90mph 3-second gusts:
• TX-483: 9.3 sq. ft.
• TX-455: 7.4 sq. ft.
• TX-472: 6.1 sq. ft.
• TX-489: 12.0 sq. ft.
Up to 2½ times more windloading capacity than others towers. This superior strength allows for large stacked arrays, while using our commercial type bases and anchor bolts that can be easily installed and vertically adjusted. HDX Series T-bases are designed to use our TRX Series raising fixtures making installations and antenna servicing a one-man job. HDX-589MDPL comes with MCL-100 limit switch package. HDX Series towers come with rotor plate, anchor bolts and heavy-duty T-base. US Towers special T-base design allows the tower to hinge for easy installation.
HDX-Series Windloading ratings based on IBC 2006 (TIA/EIA-222-F) at 76mph and 90mph 3-second gusts:
• HDX-538: 26.6 sq. ft.
• HDX-555: 23.4 sq. ft.
• HDX-572: 14.1 sq. ft.
• HDX-589: 9.2 sq. ft.
• HDX-5106: 1.0 sq. ft. at 90mph

US TOWER HISTORY
US Tower Corporation is one of four companies under common ownership operated as a single enterprise to benefit customers. Known by the shorthand trade name of "UST", this enterprise also includes US Towers (Lincoln, KS), US Tower Alabama (Huntsville, AL) and Wireless Eye (Woodlake, CA).
US Tower Corporation was originally formed from the purchase of Tristao Tower in 1985, which invented and developed the telescoping tower nearly 85 years ago.
In 2003, US Tower expanded through internal growth to establish a Kansas location, closer to our central and east coast customers. US Towers Corporation in Lincoln, Kansas was officially formed in 2006.
That same year we incorporated Wireless Eye, Inc. to provide a portfolio of surveillance options to customers. Wireless Eye meets virtually any surveillance/assessment security requirements. We offer a comprehensive line of distributed, unmanned and autonomous security solutions, all designed and manufactured for high quality and reliability. Wireless Eye can seamlessly integrate with existing security systems or develop a completely new security solution that meets the needs of our customers growing business. Check out the Wireless-Eye website here: www.wireless-eye.com
The newest addition to the UST family, US Tower Alabama, was formed in 2011 to give some of our military customers greater focus.
Our engineering design team has continued to improve and develop new and innovative tower systems, which have been built and utilized worldwide, in all climates and environmental conditions. Engineering and manufacturing superior tower systems for nearly 25 years, our product line has expanded and evolved to meet ever changing user requirements and development of the technology of the twenty first century.
Our current product line includes telescoping tubular masts, self-supporting and telescoping lattice towers (standard and custom), mobile tower units, custom-built structures as well as a full line of accessories to accommodate antenna and feed line support.
Our stationary towers include our telescoping tubular towers with a variety of options: standard, self-supporting and rotating. Our line of lattice style self-supporting towers (they also telescope for added convenience and ease of maintenance) come in a variety of styles to fit any need, including our compact TMM series, our standard TX series and the heavy duty HDX series.
Our Mobile Tower Units (MTUs) or COWS (Cell on Wheels) are our crowning achievement; we have led the way with groundbreaking innovations! By combining the strength and versatility of our steel telescoping towers with the freedom and portability of a trailer we have helped to usher in the cellular and wireless age. These units can provide communication in the worst possible terrain and have been used to help our troops stay safe on foreign soil.
Our newest addition, the polygon tower, will be a revolution in the broadcast industry -- watch for it.
Of course, we also manufacture a full line of accessories for all of our products.
Throughout the years, UST has emphasized the highest product quality and responsive customer support by investing in excellent new equipment, facilities and - most of all - people. Our support staff offers technical assistance and support to all of our valued customers, no sale is ever final!
