A Stand advice, suggestion, review request
« on: January 24, 2007, 10:48:58 pm »

I need a pair of entry-level stands for 14" (light duty AL) truss.

Anyone have experience/pointers/warnings with these:

Just hanging (mounting) about 220 lbs. including truss, cable, fixtures (at 12 foot trim) span from 18 to about 27 feet.

from http://www.stagelights.com/truss.htm#Steel%20Crank%20Up%20St ands

(and other sources)

CU-15 (15 feet) (3 flat legs - All steel)
  Heavy Duty Steel Crank
  up Stand with locking
  winch and aircraft cable.
  300 lb. Capacity


Aluminum - SLC 150 (4 legs - all aluminium)
 Max. height: 16' 5"
 Max. load: 220 lbs.
 Base w / outriggers: 6' 6"
 


(don't need the usual rigging warnings, weight distribution discussion for now)

Since you're using actual truss and putting a decent load on it, I'd stay away from any of those super cheap DJ truss stands (ADJ comes to mind). I'd go with something with outriggers and a winch and steel cable. There's a lot of different ones out there, and I haven't tried them all, so I can't really make a recommendation, but I'd think as long as it meets your trim requirements, load requirements, and isn't a cheap DJ setup, you should be ok.

Makes sense.

Mike Pyle is getting me some of the mid-capacity Global-Truss stands.
