Light Hollywood's 3-Ton Grip & Lighting Truck

*NEW SLICK AND CLEAN BUILD OUT* The 3-ton truck is perfect for small-to-medium jobs, one set at a time. Just like our 4-ton truck, our 3-ton truck is built upon the 6.8L V10 Ford F550 SuperDuty XLT.  Our 3-Ton truck has a full self-leveling lift gate and is professionally organized and easy to work from, with all new shelves and labels for almost everything.
Our new 3-Ton is ready to roll!  With new C-stands and new shelves. Includes a doorway dolly, 36' of track, muscle cart, senior magliner and lift gate.

The 3-Ton Grip & Lighting truck has enough equipment to light most webisodes, short films, corporate videos, industrials, smaller commercials, and smaller indie features!  It also has enough space for add-ons, more so than any of our other trucks in our fleet.


The Standard 3-Ton Grip & Electric Gear List

First of all, TIM LOVES LIGHTS.  He is so passionate about lighting that he has managed to buy more lights than what fits in all 3 grip trucks, a 20' cargo container, his office, and all our storage trucks (over 150 total at last count). Although it's impossible to own every type of light for every type of job, he is always adding extra equipment to our inventory, so it never hurts to ask if we have it.  What we don't have we can subrent from one of the rental houses around town, schedule permitting.

Second, keep in mind that this list is our normal load-out -- however, it is subject to change at any time (gear already on rental with another customer, in repair, or otherwise indisposed). To be safe, you must call ahead and discuss your actual equipment needs with us, otherwise the truck may be loaded with everything except the one piece of gear you need most. Be safe and call us at (408) 406-1832 to confirm exactly what you need.

Beta Feature: Tooltips! Hold your mouse pointer over an item in the list for 2 seconds and a popup window with a detailed description, specs and links will appear! (Work in progress, Javascript required).

Rental Terms

Except under special circumstances, all our grip trucks require a signed Light Hollywood contract, an insurance certificate (loss payee, additional insured, and non-owned and hired auto), 100% payment for the rental, and a member of Light Hollywood as a driver / crew member (price negotiable). If any of these terms doesn't work for your production or you have special concerns, please feel free to give us a call.

Keep in mind about our Light Hollywood crew member requirement: with myself or a Light Hollywood member as a driver for every truck, I am proud to say in over 10 years and over 1000 jobs I have never billed anyone or their insurance for a loss claim over $150, and only one damage claim over $500. This system has worked very well over the years to minimize or eliminate loss & damage, and is designed to protect both Light Hollywood and you. If you ever question the value of this requirement, ask Cinelease, Wooden Nickel, or any other rental house what's the largest claim they've ever filed. The numbers are staggering.
