According to Manfrotto, the maximum height of the stand is 83.46". Maybe the stand and the boom is 280cm but just the stand is 83.46".

question

Im thinking about buying it to use with a Selens 75' (12.05 pounds). Does this arm will hold it?
Asked by: Zanelli C.
The maximum load capacity of the Manfrotto 085BS Heavy-Duty Boom and Stand at full extension is 13.2 lbs (6kg) with the included 15 lbs (7kg) counterweight. If you use a larger counterweight or use the boom arm at a shorter distance (not at full extension), it can support more weight. As you state your setup weighs 12.05 lbs, it should be compatible for use with the Manfrotto 085BS Heavy-Duty Boom and Stand at full extension.

question

What is the difference between the Manfrotto 085B and 085BS, in regards to the boom arm only?
Asked by: Noland U.
The 085BS replaces the no longer available 085B. I believe the only difference in the boom arms was the color and the length. If memory serves me correctly the 085B has a 7' silver boom and the 085BS has a 9' black boom.They are both three section arms with the same counterweight and spigot. While I've never owned the 085B I do own the 085BS and can au the stand and the boom arm are extremely sturdy and hold up very well.
