Eurosatory 2016: Will-Burt Introduces STILETTO AL Mast

The Will-Burt Company, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of mobile elevation solutions, introduces the STILETTO AL electro-mechanical telescoping mast at the USA pavilion stand #D578.

The STILETTO family of electro-mechanical telescoping masts are known to provide great pointing accuracy and stability along with high payload lifting capability. The STILETTO and STILETTO HD are lightweight due to the use of composite materials in their construction and have been used in military and commercial applications around the world for a number of years. The new alloy constructed STILETTO AL delivers the same precise pointing accuracy and payload management capabilities as the Stiletto composite mast and is well-suited for military and commercial applications.

The desire to deliver unparalleled performance with a cost-effective elevation platform drove the creation of STILETTO AL,” Jeffrey O. Evans, President, CEO and Chairman of The Will-Burt Company, informed MT. “The feature set we have been able to incorporate into this telescoping mast appeals to a broad customer base, both in commercial and military markets, and is capable of meeting a wide variety of critical program requirements.”

The MIL-STD 810 compliant STILETTO AL was designed with several innovative features.

  • Does not require guying and is self-supporting with high-strength alloy construction
  • Minimal mast twist with energized keyway guides
  • Low wind deflection delivered with constricting wear bands
  • Quiet operation from a DC motor driving an environmentally sealed direct-drive system
  • High payload lifting capacity up to 158kg with patent pending automatic quiet locks
  • Heights from 4 to 15 metres
  • Reduced maintenance from a clean air filter system that prevents dirt from entering mast
  • Easy and precise operation with integrated PC controls
