Doosan Portable Power offers a single solution for two important jobsite needs — power and light — with the L20 light tower and mobile generator. The L20 features a hydraulically powered vertical mast light tower perfect for illuminating jobsites at night, while the 20-kW generator provides reliable power for jobsite needs. The L20 light tower has four 1,000-watt metal halide lamps mounted on a vertical mast that extends to a full height of 25 ft, 8 in. in less than 30 seconds. Minimum stowed height is 8 ft. The light head can be adjusted horizontally and vertically and each light fixture can be maneuvered independently. The L20 provides reliable, quiet operation at just 69 dBA. It’s able to withstand winds of more than 65 mph, while a 70-gal fuel tank provides 57 hours of continuous operation at 100 percent load. For more info, visit doosanportablepower.com.
The new Terex AL5 light tower with optional vertical mast has a field-proven AL5 light tower chassis and offers simpler, faster mast deployment. The new vertical mast light tower provides accurate positioning and durable performance for a safer alternative on the jobsite. Providing 350-degree rotation, the new light tower offers ease of access. Users can rotate the mast’s four quick disconnect lights in either the raised or the stowed position. With its easy-to-position lights, the electric winch raises the mast providing ergonomic benefits. An electric rather than hydraulic design means there is no worry about spill containment. With one switch next to the control panel, the winch lifts and lowers the lights in 30 seconds. For more info, visit terex.com.
Chicago Pneumatic offers the CPLT M10 light tower, featuring metal halide lamp technology, which is one of the most efficient ways of turning electrical energy into light. It requires less power, produces more light and provides the ideal lighting for working, sport and event areas. At 1,000-W per lamp, the Chicago Pneumatic light tower features four metal halide lamps with 0.5 fc at 7.5 acres. In normal operation, metal halide lamps will have a long life, and the failure ratio is the lowest of all types of lamps. The lightweight M10 light tower provides reliability, ease of operation and maneuverability out on the job and event site. Other features include a metallic enclosure with wide service doors, electrical cubicle for control and protection, vertically extendable mast (up to 31 ft) that also rotates 360 degrees, stabilization legs and on-road undercarriage.

Wacker Neuson has expanded its light tower line with the addition of two models designed for faster setup time and easier operation. The LTN 6KV and LTN 8KV are trailer-mounted vertical mast light towers. The vertical mast is made of nine robust sections that can be easily raised and lowered in about 20 seconds by the push of a button. The hydraulically activated telescoping mast collapses while remaining in the vertical position, eliminating the tower overhang off the back of the trailer. This design decreases the total length of the unit, maximizing the number of machines that can fit on a standard shipping truck and in a rental storage space. The new LTN 6KV and LTN 8KV are narrow body light towers that are ideally suited whenever nighttime needs to be converted to daylight. The mast extends 28 ft and retracts to just 7 ft, lowering the center of gravity, allowing for more balanced towing and making the light fixtures more easily accessible to rotate.

Developed in cooperation with the Propane Education & Research Council (PERC), Magnum’s MLT4000S Solar Hybrid light tower offers a greener, more efficient way to illuminate construction jobsites. During the day, a solar-panel array charges the light tower’s batteries for nighttime operation. If cloudy or inclement weather prevents the batteries from fully charging, a propane-powered Generac generator turns on automatically and recharges the batteries until the solar panels can take over. Unlike diesel, propane does not degrade over time, reducing fuel-related performance problems. PERC is offering buyers a $3,500 incentive to purchase the MLT4000S through its Propane Heat & Power Incentive Program. For more info, visit m-p-llc.com/products/lighttowers/solarhybrid/.
General Equipment Co. recently announced the addition of the Luminite temporary lighting products to its line of specialized light construction equipment. Luminite temporary lighting units are designed for technical lighting in larger areas and incorporate a cylindrical load-bearing structure that is inflated with constant air pressure delivered by an integral blower system. Operational heights of 6, 12 and 15 ft allow low-beam, 360-degree illumination of large areas or the ability to concentrate and direct light in any specific direction. Luminite temporary lighting products can operate from readily available 115-VAC, 60-Hz electrical power sources or feature self-contained, gasoline-engine powered generator systems for remote site operation.

The WAL-ML-3XM-3G mini light tower is a portable lighting system designed for stand alone operation and high mobility while providing enough output to illuminate approximately 3 acres of area effectively. Equipped with a heavy-duty, adjustable height tower, 7-hp generator and three 1,000-W metal halide lamps, this mini tower provides operators with an easily deployed lighting system that can provide large scale illumination for up to 5 hours on a single tank of gas. This unit features an extendable tower assembly that can be adjusted from 7 to 12 ft in height for maximum coverage. A single hand crank allows operators to easily raise or lower the tower as needed, and a removable lamp mounting platform allows removal of the lamp assembly for easier transport and storage. The base of the tower is fitted with four solid wheels to allow easy positioning; the operator can simply grab a handle and roll it into the desired location as needed.
