' Product Overview '
Made in the USA The LM-SMWB-HLM65-20X1000W-MH-SYNC from Larson Electronics is a Skid Mounted Hydraulic Metal Halide Megatower™ that is self-contained, offering high output illumination and fuel savings over traditional light plants. This skid mounted fold over 7-stage hydraulic light plant provides a safe and effective way for operators to quickly deploy twenty 1,000-watt metal halide light heads to elevations above 65` (ground to mast head), reaching a total height of 74` (with 9` of light head assembly). Equipped with auto retract and an anchor, this hydraulic light tower folds over for easy transportation, features a hydraulic ram upright assist, hydraulic mast and high output fixtures. The entire self-contained assembly is mounted onto a large skid mount for direct access to all of the lighting system`s components. *PLEASE NOTE: ANY FREE SHIPPING OFFERS DO NOT APPLY TO LIGHT MASTS OR LIGHT TOWERS* The LM-SMWB-HLM65-20X1000W-MH-SYNC Light Plant is a self-contained, high power light tower package. This unit includes a hydraulic telescoping light mast which can elevate twenty high output metal halide lamps to heights above 65`. Equipped with auto retract for automated management of the mast and an anchor for robust stability during deployment, the hydraulic tower is capable of reaching heights up to 74` with the light head assembly, which measures 9` in height. This mobile floodlight package is ideal for large scale event illumination, construction, mining, industrial operations, and anywhere a mobile full power lighting system capable of extended operation is needed. This light tower is offered in 120/240V single phase, 240/120V three phase or 208/120V three phase. Sync`d controls allow multiple Metatowers to be connected together. In such configuration, operation for the linked Megatowers are faciliated by a single control station. This telescoping seven stage hydraulic light mast from Larson Electronics is designed to allow operators to quickly and safely deploy high intensity metal halide lighting in locations where illumination must be elevated to heights above 65` (from ground to mast head; 74` in total height with 9` light head assembly) for effective coverage. This light boom can be collapsed to 22` for applications where a footprint smaller is required. The tower is constructed of heat treated aluminum tubing with 2.69` foot of overlap per section. The mast is elevated using an included hydraulic ram and extended to its full height using a second hydraulic system.
A 90" wide by 109.5" tall and 2" by 2" by 1/4" thick steel mast head is attached to the upper section of the mast which provides a strong and stable platform for the twenty metal halide light heads. Lights: The LM-SMWB-HLM65-20X1000W-MH-SYNC Hydraulic Megatower™ from Larson Electronics features twenty 1,000-watt metal halide fixtures. Each module produces 110,000 lumens for an impressive lumen total of 2,200,000 lumens which provides operators with a superior lighting solution for even the most challenging areas to illuminate. To ensure even coverage of wide areas, the modules used on this hydraulic light plant are configured in Larson Electronics for even distribution pattern. Ballasts for the metal halide lights are located away from the fixtures and can be found at the base of the tower. The fixtures produce exceptional illumination using a 19” aluminum reflector housing that spreads a powerful flood pattern of high quality light over large areas. The metal halide lamps are secured within a separate die cast housing for strength and durability while a clear tempered glass lens provides protection for the lamp. The 19” reflector on this lamp is constructed of aluminum with a clear tempered glass lens which is hinged onto the reflector and secured into place with a four-point latching system. The lamp socket is die cast aluminum and separate from the reflector for added durability. The reflector and lamp socket assembly are secured together as one unit which makes installation simple and straightforward. Vertical and horizontal aiming guides are included in the lamps` design which makes aiming the metal halide units during operation easier and safer, protecting users from the potential burns associated with handling the fixtures. A stainless steel hinge provides durable adjustability and corrosion resistance.

Telescoping Boom: The hydraulic telescoping boom is constructed of heat treated aluminum with a powder coated finish and extends above 65` in height from the ground to the mast head and 74` of total height with the light assembly (measures 9` in height). This boom is raised from and lowered to the folded position by a single hydraulic ram and extended or retracted by a second hydraulic system. Auto Retract: To prevent damage and shaking from strong winds during operation, this light tower is equipped with a robust wind monitoring system. When exposed to strong winds, such as 40 mph, the system automatically retracts the mast for safe operation. In a retracted state, operators must re-adjust the height of the mast back to its original height (or another preferred height). This cutting-edge feature is designed to improve safety at industrial work sites. This light plant can withstand 35 mph winds before auto retract when fully extended, with standard guy wires to the outriggers. When guy wires are applied 60 feet out from the side of the trailer, the light tower can withstand 50 mph winds before auto retract. When auto retract is activated, operators must send the mast back to its original position or preferred height setting. Wiring/Controls: The metal halide light heads are grouped into banks of four. Each bank in wired into the NEMA 3R breaker control box at the base of the mast. Operators control the light heads via an on/off switched breaker per bank of four light heads. The hydraulics and battery charger are also powered from within this breaker box. The mast elevation is controlled by a push button switch to operate the hydraulic ram allowing operators to raise the mast to the upright position. The vertical deployment is operated by a second push button switch allowing operators to extend it to its full 58` height or retract it to the collapsed height. Skid Mount: The entire unit is mounted onto a large skid mount system for incorporating all of the necessary lighting equipment/components in one, readily available package. This skid mount includes a front mounted storage area for stowing tools and accessories. The skid mount is finished in industrial grade Dupont™ paint for protection against rust and corrosion and provides an attractive finish. Overall dimensions of the entire mounting system and boom assembly in the stowed for travel configuration is 21` long by 8` wide. Pickeyes located at every corner of the unit are available for transporting via crane lift or air transport in remote locations. Six 7,000 lbs hand crank jacks are used for raising the unit up off the ground, and four 7,000 lbs hand crank jacks mounted on extending outriggers are used for leveling and stabilizing the assembly. Each of the four jacks are attached to a pivoting outrigger constructed of 6` by 6" by 6.3" steel I-beams. The jacks can be leveled by hand crank or attachment provided for power drills. These outriggers can be extended 6` out from the side of the unit for added stability. Custom builds can be provided for higher wind speed resistance when fully raised. An anchor at the bottom of the skid provides stability, which can be deployed to a concrete pad. We offer a choice of finishing, equipped light heads, and with or without gensets. These towers can be fitted with Larson Electronics line of high output light heads, or customize the mast head to meet the mounting requirements for your equipment. Optional diesel generators and fuel cells can be equipped from factory, or retrofitted after purchase.
