LongLegs™ Tripod System
Designed for use with the very LONGEST POLES made.
Literally the daddy LongLegs™of all tripod systems.
Multi-purpose lightweight portable TeleScoping Pole Tripod System, with fully articulated Gimbal Mount standing up to allows a very long fully extended pole to be rotated any direction 360-degrees horizontal, and from ground level to full 90-degrees vertical. In addition, pole in Gimbal Mount can be fully rotated on its own axis, allowing complete manipulative control of whatever is mounted at the tip of the pole.
As little as 10Lb counterweight balances the pole perfectly, allowing fingertip adjustment at base or via a control cord on the pole fore and aft of the gimbal. Adding 5Lb additional counterweight makes pole self-righting to vertical position unattended in calm weather. If desired, gimbal and pole can be locked into any position with turn screw knobs.
Adjustable fiberglass tripod legs stand from six feet up to twenty feet, adjustable in five foot increments, plus leveling adjustments of 2.5 to 5.0 inches at each base. At full extension, gimbal stands 17-ft above ground. Each leg base has a steel point with foot plate to assist pressing point into the ground. Optional base leg Rubber Boots available. Tripod leg angle is fixed at 60 degrees at the mount, but fully extended legs flex to allow setup for maximum stability (wide) or maximum height (narrow). Entire Tripod Gimbal weighs only 18 Lb (8.2Kg), about 77x10x10-inches collapsed.
Optional: ALUMINUM tripod legs 8-ft long, fixed length with steel points, no leveling adjustments. Each leg has a steel point. Gimbal Mount height 7-ft. Optional base leg Rubber Boots available. Entire Tripod Gimbal weighs 10 Lb (4.5Kg), about 103x10x10-inches collapsed.
Full system weight depends upon pole used and counterweight required.
Tripod Gimbal system may be used with any of the following telescoping
Fiberglass Poles are lightweight and non-conductive made with high-strength dielectric fiberglass with Epoxy Resin coating, poles feature positive locking, spring-loaded buttons for fast and easy extension. Universal Mount tool tip at top with standard, toothed, turn screw fitting for Special Tools or mounts (see link).
Carbon Fiber lightweight poles are the lightest very long poles available. For use with only very light tip load at extreme heights. Using spring button locks in a fixed housing provides positive lock at every segment. Made with high-modulus, high-strength, carbon fiber tubing, poles can weigh up to 40% less than equivalent fiberglass poles. Poles are fitted with a button tip (lamp changer), GPS thread, or custom fitting by request. Flexibility similar to fiberglass. Caution: Carbon Fiber is highly conductive in any electronic environment.
Mounted in the Tripod Gimbal mount, poles require counterweight during use.
Amount of counterweight and exact positioning of pole in gimbal mount
depends on length of pole extended and weight of equipment at tip end of
pole. For survey purposes, gimbal is recommended to be left unlocked
with counterweights adjusted to allow pole to automatically self-right
itself to vertical.
