New LED Light Tower from Larson Electronics

Larson Electronics' new light tower uses a 11.7 hp Kubota diesel to power an 8 kW Marathon generator to supply current to four 500-watt LED lamps. The towable tower produces 240,000 lumens of light.

The IP67 rated lamps are resistant to the ingress of dust, dirt, and humidity, as well as rapid temperature changes and rough environmental conditions.

The tower, model WCDE-4X500W-LED-MLK, has a 45 gallon fuel tank, providing a run time of up to 80 hours. All operating components are housed within a protective compartment, with doors providing easy access to the controls and generator system. The telescoping tower reaches 25 feet when fully deployed and folds down to a 4.5 feet for storage and transportation. Hydraulic operation allows operators to easily raise, lower, or rotate the mast 359 degrees.

Four stabilizing outriggers provide stability when the tower is fully deployed. The unit is mounted on a two-wheel trailer with 13-inch wheels and a foldable tongue with a reversible two-inch ball coupling/pintle hitch. Forklift pockets allow easy loading and unloading.

“This towable, self-contained light tower is designed to withstand harsh outdoor conditions such as construction sites, mining fields, and in emergency services,” said Rob Bresnahan, CEO of Larson Electronics. “This new lighting package produces 240,000 lumens of intense, concentrated light while providing durable LED technology.”
