Larson Electronics LLC has announced the release of a towable mobile light tower equipped with a water-cooled diesel engine. This telescoping tower is ideal for emergency services in large scale operations such as construction, mining and industrial sites.
The WCDE-4X15M-8KW-MHL is a towable light tower that produces enough light to illuminate up to 8 acres. Four 1,500 watt metal halide lamps produce a total of 600,000 lumens producing a wide flood light pattern, and are mounted on a telescoping light mast that can be raised to 30-feet, making this mobile light tower ideal for emergency operations. The telescoping boom is constructed of galvanized steel, which is resistant to rust and corrosion from outdoor weather. The boom can withstand 65 mph winds at maximum mast height with stabilizing outriggers deployed.
This light tower features key operated starting, automatic safety shutoffs for low oil pressure and high temperature, as well as duel fuel filters and drain ports that can be accessed for maintenance. The Kubota diesel engine is water-cooled and produces 8,000 watts and 120/240V at 60Hz. This unit can run for up to 50 hours straight without refueling, thanks to a 30 gallon tank; making it ideal for remote locations and emergency service situations, where traditional power sources are not reliable, or available. The entire rig is mounted on a trailer with a 3500 lb. leaf spring axle and three 3000 lb. adjustable leveling jacks for towing from site to site.
