Bigger Mast

Not happy with the problem seal on the Racal mast I stumbled across a nearly new Clark mast on ebay.

It turns out to be one of a set that were purpose built for a particular security operation and painted in desert colours. It looks like thy were designed to be linked together and all pump up together.

Anyway it is a 13.5m with a 40Kg headload. for a fraction of the new price , that will do nicely. Taller than a Scam and nearly up to the same headload.

I went to Somerset to collect and it only just fitted diagonally in the Disco.


Then set about modifying the carriage for the original mast.


By adding a bit on the base


Here is is tacked up


Now to wait till I can get someone to help me onto the car with it.
