This skid mounted fold over 7-stage hydraulic light plant provides a safe and effective way for operators to quickly deploy twenty 500-watt LED 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, this hydraulic light tower folds over for easy transportation, features a hydraulic ram upright assist, hydraulic mast and high output LED fixtures. The LED light tower is powered by an 20 KW Perkins diesel generator with a 110 gallon fuel tank. The entire self-contained assembly is mounted onto a large skid mount for direct access to all of the lighting system`s components. The SMDE-11-HLM65-16X500LTL-LED is a direct replacement for 1000W metal halide light plants. *PLEASE NOTE: ANY FREE SHIPPING OFFERS DO NOT APPLY TO LIGHT MASTS OR LIGHT TOWERS* The SMDE-11-HLM65-16X500LTL-LED LED Light Plant is a self-contained, high power light tower package. This unit contains a water cooled diesel engine powering a 20KW Perkins generator, which supplies the current for twenty 500-watt LED lights producing 67,500 lumens each, for a combined total of 1,350,000 lumens of light. This unit can run uninterrupted for up to 110 continuous hours (at a rate of 1 gallon per hour w/ LED lights on) without refueling and includes a hydraulic telescoping light mast which can elevate twenty high output LED lamps to heights above 65`. Equipped with auto retract for automated management of the mast, 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 telescoping seven stage hydraulic light mast from Larson Electronics is designed to allow operators to quickly and safely deploy up to 10,000 watts of high intensity LED 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 500-watt LED light heads. Lights: The SMDE-11-HLM65-16X500LTL-LED Hydraulic LED Megatower™ from Larson Electronics features twenty fixtures that each draw 500 watts, for a total fixture wattage of 10,000 watts. Each module produces 67,500 lumens at a color temperature of 5000K for an impressive lumen total of 1,350,000 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 LED modules used on this hydraulic light plant are configured in Larson Electronics for even distribution pattern. LED Benefits: Unlike gas burning and arc type lamps that have glass bulbs, LEDs have no filaments or fragile housings to break during operation and/or transportation. Instead of heating a small filament or using a combination of gases to produce light, light emitting diodes (LEDs) use semi-conductive materials that illuminate when electric current is applied, providing instant illumination with no warm up or cool down time before re-striking. Because there is no warm up period, this light can be cycled on and off with no reduction in lamp life. LED lights run at significantly cooler temperatures than traditional metal halide and high pressure sodium lights and contain no harmful gases, vapors, or mercury, making them both safer and more energy efficient. No extra energy is wasted in cooling enclosed work areas due to external heat emissions from bulb type lights, and the operator risks associated with traditional lighting methods, such as accidental burns and exposure to hazardous substances contained in the glass bulbs, are eliminated. In addition, LEDs are also safer for the environment as they are 100% recyclable, which eliminates the need for costly special disposal services required with traditional gas burning and arc type lamps.

Durability: As well as unparalleled heat control, the LED lights used in the SMDE-11-HLM65-16X500LTL-LED also offer IP67 rated construction that is designed to withstand extremes of environmental and operating conditions. These units can withstand rapid temperature changes of -40° Celsius to +85° Celsius, are waterproof, and resist ingress of dust, dirt and humidity. We recommend these LED lights for use in applications where a lot of vibration, dust, dirt, dampness and abusive working conditions are encountered. Heat Management: Heat is the single largest factor in premature LED failure and color shifting. The heat-sink on the LED modules has been engineered to provide optimum heat dissipation. Each LED module has been sized for proper passive cooling to prevent premature failure of LEDs or color shifting and to eliminate the need for an active cooling system typically associated with high powered LED systems. Telescoping Boom: The hydarulic 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 LED 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 LED 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 LED 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. Power is provided to the control box via an integraged 20KW genset. 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. Genset: The SMDE-11-HLM65-16X500LTL-LED mobile hydraulic Megatower™ includes a specialized genset that houses a Perkins diesel engine that powers the 20KW Stamford 120/240V brushless generator. This genset is liquid cooled and features a single phase generator with electric start ignition. The diesel generator runs at 1800 RPM and is equipped with an EPA/CARB Tier 4 emissions system. A 110 gallon fuel cell sits beside the genset and is equipped with an electric fuel delivery system. The fuel cell is constructed of single a heavy gauge steel single wall frame with internal anti-splash baffles. This genset features key operated electric starting, a twelve volt electrical system, liquid cooling, replaceable dry element air cleaner, and a full enclosure for safe operation and protection against the elements. This engine also features cold weather options to improve performance under cold weather conditions. 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. Runtime: The twenty 500-watt LED light heads have a considerably less amp draw than the metal halide light heads on traditional light plants. This allows the SMDE-11-HLM65-16X500LTL-LED to achieve up to 110 hours of continual use on a single tank of gas, at a rate of 1 gallon per hour with LED lights on, when only operating the light heads and air compressor. When running 24 hours a day and 7 days a week, this LED light plant will run for nearly 2 days straight without refueling. When the genset is running for 12 hours a day, this tower will provide on-site illumination for up to 4 days before needing more fuel. This self contained LED light plant provides operators with a worry free and energy efficient alternative to metal halide light plants. 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.
