The Clark Masts Type 72 is the smallest of the Clark Masts sectional masts and lift headloads of up to 55kgs at 8 metres and 30kgs at 20 metres in height and is fully rotatable. The universal 3-inch mast sections are made from seamless drawn aircraft grade 10 swg (3.25mm) aluminium tube.
The mast is able to be set up safely in high winds using the guy winch controllers which tension the guys as the mast extends and retracts and also enable separate tensioning of each steel guy rope.
Sectional masts such as the Type 72 are specially designed to be man-portable, enabling them to be transported to the required location, be it mountain top or dense jungle, by any available means including 4×4 vehicles or helicopters. Each item has its own carry bag and the mast sections are carried in special carriers according to the number of sections required. The sectional mast can be erected to its desired height using the interlocking tubular mast sections.
