Revere 2 Piece Folding Light Pole ... Folded

Revere 2 Piece Folding Light Pole ... Folded

Click to view full size image

This Revere folding pole was designed so that it could be lowered easily for luminaire service without a lift,ladder, or bucket truck. Lowering was achieved by attaching a small winch to the pole base and clipping the end of the winch cable to a ring at the end of the upper pole section, then, by removing a retaining bolt on the opposite side of the ring the upper section could be lowered and the lights serviced from the ground. when finished, you simply winch the upper portion back up , reinstall the retaining bolt and VIOLA! Done !

Thanks ! Its going to get painted and used in 2 pieces since I had to take it apart to get it home anyway. I temporarily reassembled it for the pics . The lower section is going about 6 feet to the right of the picture to be used to hang my 400w Powr/Bracket and the upper section will end up behind the garage holding up 2 400w wide-lites! (at least that's the plan)

Did this still work when it was removed Looks like it's pretty weather-beaten.

The high school I went to has four of these poles. Three are street light poles with early 80s 250W HPS GE M-400s with plastic lenses (one missing the lens). The fourth pole is behind the streetview shot I linked and it's a bullhorn pole like this one, with nothing mounted on it. I have never seen the lights working. When all the exterior lights were replaced with LEDs in 2013/2014, these poles were left alone, so my guess is these were disconnected a long time ago.

Please check out my newly-updated website! McCann Lighting Company is where my street light collection is displayed in detail.

No. they didn't work in the 20 + years I've known about them. This had 2 Revere floods on the bullhorn I assume were originally incandescent that some genius "electrician" converted to 1000w MV. I'd guess the ballasts are in the building somewhere as the pole was bolted directly to the concrete base and the fried wiring consisted of a white and a blue wire to each light all the way into the concrete base . The lamps are Phillips 1KW /DX MVs which were made to fit by beating the hell out of the reflector with a mallet for clearance Both lamps appear to be low or no hours! I'll be posting pics of the lamps and fixtures soon .

As for the lights at your school, would I be correct to assume these were originally some kind of incandescent fixture in the past?

Did the pole work though? (like being able to lower it?) I'm wondering if there's something in these that could rust up, preventing the top half from lowering. I always wanted to know how to lower these poles. Not sure what the poles at my old school had originally. The bullhorn pole has been empty for as long as I can remember. The M-400s were there long before I was born. I would assume they were either incandescent or MV originally though.

The pole has flanged bronze bushings bolted to the lower section which are used as the hinges so it folded rather easily despite looking so crusty.
