Light tower with wheels provides efficiency on the move at construction site
Chicago Pneumatic has launched its seventh light tower. Equipped with wheels and featuring high-efficiency LED lamps with specially-designed optics to maximise light coverage and brightness, the new CPLT H6LED offers greater luminosity and improved transportability with the goal of reducing overall operational costs. The new models can meet the demands of applications including construction sites,events, rental and oil and gas.
     The CPLT H6LED is equipped withfour 350W high-efficiency LED lamps, which are equivalent to four 1,000W metal halide lamps. The effect is to maximise coverageup to 5,000 sq m, while reducing fuel consumption by up to 70 per cent.
     Longer refuelling intervals are enabled by a 130-litre fuel tank that supports run times of up to 185 hours. The stamina of the light tower is enhanced by IP67 protection of its LED lamps, which offer up to 30,000 hours of life before replacements are required.
     The CPLT H6LED featuresa galvanized hydraulic seven-metre mast, plus four heavy-duty stabilisers, to ensurereliability and operator safety. Both of these are essential in the challenging conditionsin which light towers are likely to operate.
     Easy transportation and service have also been factored into the design of the new light tower, which has a compact frame and offers simple access points for maintenance work.
