Pneumatic Telescopic Mast – NY Series
The NY Series of telescopic Hilomast masts has a base section diameter of 9.3 inches and is pneumatically operated by custom-built air compressors. These masts do not have standard locking collars. Locking collars are available at an additional cost. NY Series have special engaging screws, fitted into each of the main collars, to resist the torsional loads when the masts are fully extended.
The NY Series masts are suited for special applications where high head loads are required or where maximum directional stability is necessary. There is a wide use of applications for this series, typical uses could be:
- Mounting video cameras fitted with telephoto lenses
- Microwave dish antennas for electronic news gathering/outside broadcast
- Direction sensitive antennas or devices.
- NY12 and NY14 = 4300kg cms or 61,160 PSI
- NY7 and NY21 = 5200kg cms or 73,961 PSI
- NY10 and NY18 = 5800kg cms or 82,495 PSI
All NY masts have a horizontal flange of 6.1 inches diameter at the top for mounting antennas etc. This flange can be drilled to suit customer requirements.
Hilomast, LLC also offers custom-built applications with all of the masts in all of our series.
Please feel free to contact Hilomast from our Contact Us page of this website, or call Hilomast, and we will be glad to discuss details and/or options on the NY series masts or on other competitive products in which we specialize.
Note: The table of masts below is only a small selection of possible mast configurations available to you. Due to the modular design of all Hilomast pneumatic masts, we are able to offer masts in custom sizes, with or without locking collars, and in various colors and finishes.

The table shows the vertical head load that each mast will support and the maximum operational wind speed. The weight of the antenna, however, is not usually the main criterion when selecting a mast. The limiting factor is usually the ‘side surface area’ of the antenna.
The wind speeds shown are based on the following side surface areas:
NH Masts = 1 ft². NK = 1.5 ft². NL = 2.1 ft². NX = 3.2 ft². NY = 11.8 ft².
