The lattice design, hot galvanized steel, telescopic tower, comprised of ~ 21’0” sections, is designed to transport horizontally over the trailer’s forward deck, and automatically tilted using a separate 1.5HP electric motor which raises it to its fully extended height. The KET is capable of being deployed, elevated to its full- extended height by one person in under 30 minutes, and can be further secured by an available mechanical tower lock mechanism.
