Matthews Studio Equipment has unveiled the Middle Max Menace Arm.

Based on the same principles as the original Max Menace Arm, Middle Max is designed for smaller production vehicles. Featuring a payload capacity of 150 pounds (80 pounds when fully extended), it can arm into most locations to hold lights, reflectors, cameras or set dressing from its own compact base. It extends up to 18' high and can lower to 6' below grade. It counterbalances weight via two legs attached to the base for standard weight plates.

Middle Max features a hand-truck-style steering handle and 10" x 3" puncture-proof tires. The self-leveling head accommodates three lock-off or fixed positions — Down/Up/Out — as well as a self-leveling feature. The Middle Max can be safely rocked back dolly-style by one user.

Middle Max’s loading height is 64", and it can easily fit into a 1-ton or similar-size vehicle.

The MSE Middle Max Menace Arm lists for $6,000.
