The Global Truss DT-3800L is part of the new line of stand from Global Truss and offered under their Duratruss line of truss and stands. What sets the DT-3800L and the other Duratruss stands apart is the crank design. Instead of using a typical wench and steel cable the Duratruss stands use a gear driven design which cuts down on the number of moving parts. The durable construction and outriggers make it ideal for situations that require extra height and heavier loads. The Global Truss DT-3800L has a maximum height of 12' and a maximum vertical load of 176lbs yet weighs only 38lbs making it much easier to handle than other stands in it's class.
