Atlas Copco Construction Equipment launches two new light towers — the HiLight V4 and the LED HiLight V5+. The HiLight V5+ minimizes operational costs with its long-lasting LED bulbs and fuel-efficient operation. The HiLight V4 features four metal-halide floodlights to give contractors a dependable light source for a variety of jobsites. Both models are lightweight, compact and feature Atlas Copco’s exclusive HardHat canopy for extreme durability in rugged applications, such as construction and roadbuilding.
Both of the light towers’ trailers feature a lifting beam with fork pockets and a heavy-duty lifting eye for easy loading and unloading. The trailers’ combination hitch — a feature that comes standard with the light tower — ensures that operators can move a tower with a pickup and either a pintle or ball receiver mount.
The vertical masts also contribute to worksite safety. Contractors use the V4’s 2,500-pound or the V5+’s 3,500-pound winch to raise the masts’ five sections to the maximum height of 25 feet. Horizontal masts, on the other hand, require two winches — one to extend the mast and the other to raise it from horizontal to vertical. The vertical masts eliminate the risk of the masts tipping backward and expedite setup times. Once extended, the floodlights rotate 360 degrees and generate as much as 440,000 Lumens to easily illuminate any section of a jobsite.
The polyethylene HardHat canopy withstands corrosion, dents and fading, providing ongoing protection of the engine and overall unit while keeping the resale value high. Unlike ABS canopies, the HardHat canopy will not crack on impact with debris or other materials.
Atlas Copco designed the light towers for easy serviceability and longevity. Technicians can flip open the unit’s gull-wing doors for fast and easy access to the engine and electrical components. Its control and power panel have independent circuit breakers that protect the electrical circuit if overloading or a short circuit occurs.
