Doosan Combines Power and Light

Doosan Portable Power has introduced the newly redesigned L20, a light tower and 20-kilowatt mobile generator combination. The L20 features a hydraulically-powered vertical mast light tower to light up a job site while the 20 kW generator provides power for tools, heaters or a trailer.

Doosan tower + Generator“Two applications in one package eliminates the need for another machine in the often tight quarters of job sites,” said Deree Bivins, lighting systems product marketing manager for Doosan Portable Power. The L20 light tower has four 1,000-watt metal halide lamps mounted on a vertical mast that extends to 25-ft, 8-in. in less than 30 seconds. Minimum stowed height is 8 ft. Each lamp adjusts with a locking pin system that provides simple, fluid movement. The light head can be adjusted horizontally and vertically and each light fixture can be maneuvered independently to provide optimal illumination.

The 20 kW generator is powered by an Isuzu 4LE2 direct injected engine, with a single-phase Leroy Somer alternator. This Isuzu engine provides a 14 % fuel savings over other indirect injected engines in this power class, the company says. The generator operates at 69 dBA.

The L20 can withstand winds of more than 65 miles per hour, and provide 57 hours of continuous operation at 100% load with a 70-gallon fuel tank. The unit comes standard with 110% fluid containment and includes a removable panel for radiator fill, a hooded exhaust cover and central drains. A detachable drawbar offers trouble-free towing, while convenient internal lamp storage provides protection during transport.

Standard configuration includes internal lamp storage, electric brakes and durable black textured paint to protect against chips and corrosion on the platform, hydraulic cylinder, curly cord shroud and front enclosure of the unit.

Optional features include control panel configurations, cold weather packages, air shutoff valve, lockable battery disconnect and a six-lamp option. “It’s the ideal solution for oil and gas exploration, mining and a multitude of environments where there is no reliable power source, and illumination is required,” Bivins said.
