Atlas Copco Construction Equipment recently launched 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 road building.
“For their crews to be successful, contractors need equipment that is cost-effective to operate, durable and safe. Those three points are always key drivers for innovation,” said Michael Sagermann, Atlas Copco Business Line Manager, Portable Energy Division. “That’s why we incorporated our exclusive HardHat canopy and designed the HiLight V5+ with a compact footprint, LED lights and retractable mast.”
The LED floodlights are rated for 10,000 hours and are durable to withstand a range of challenges, from vibrations during transport to harsh work environments. Contractors with a fleet of 200 light towers, for example, can save as many as 600 bulbs each year when switching from metal-halide light towers to the HiLight V5+.
Contractors save on fuel costs, as well, due to the tower’s key components — the LED floodlights, 3-kilowatt generator and Tier 4 Final Kubota diesel engine that operates at 1,800 rpm. The combination of these components allows the unit to achieve runtimes as long as 140 hours while minimizing fuel consumption on nighttime projects.
