The WCDE-4-MHL-EWGI mobile light tower from Larson Electronics is a towable lighting package powered by a water cooled diesel engine turning a single bearing 7,500 watt generator. With four 1,000 watt metal halide lamps producing 440,000 lumens this unit will illuminate a 6-7 acre area continuously without refueling for up to 50 hours. The light tower is powered by an electric winch, with a visual stop identifier available to notify operators about the level of extension during deployment.
The WCDE-4-MHL-EWGI mobile light tower is a self contained towable light tower package that produces enough light to illuminate an area up to 7 acres in size. This unit contains a water cooled diesel engine powering a 7,500 watt generator, which supplies the current to four 1,000 watt metal halide lamps producing 110,000 lumens each for a combined total of 440,000 lumens of light. This unit can run uninterrupted for 50 hours straight without refueling and includes a telescoping light mast which can elevate the four metal halide lamps to a height of 25 feet. This mobile floodlight package is ideal for emergency services, large scale event illumination, construction, mining, industrial operations and anywhere an extended operation capable mobile lighting solution is needed.
The WCDE-4-MHL-EWGI mobile light tower incorporates a long list of impressive features. The diesel engine is a water cooled Kubota that operates at 3600 rpm. This engine features key operated electric starting, a full twelve volt electrical system, automatic low oil pressure and high temperature safety shutoffs, dual fuel filters and easy access oil and radiator drain ports to facilitate maintenance. A 28 gallon fuel tank allows the engine to operate for 50 hours continuously without refueling. The 7,500 watt generator is a single bearing design and produces 120/240 volt current at 60 Hz. The generator uses a four wire hookup system with an external ground allowing for setting up both electrical and mechanical safe grounding systems.
Lights: The lighting system on this unit is comprised of four 1,000 watt metal halide lamps producing 110,000 lumens of light each attached to the end of the telescoping light boom. These floodlights produce a wide flood light pattern capable of illuminating a minimum of 5 acres with a combined total of 440,000 lumens of light. Each floodlight is securely fastened to the light boom and each lamp includes a support bracket to help maintain lamp stability within its housing. The lamps are connected to the power source via a water tight male pin connector that attaches to a receptacle located on the end of the telescoping boom.
Controls: The operations system for this unit is a centrally located control panel within the light tower enclosure. Four circuit breaker protected switches allow individual control of the lights while an individual hour meter tracks unit operating time. Also included is an alternator warning light, fuel primer system, preheating switch, and a 120 volt GFCI duplex receptacle for auxiliary power takeoff.
Telescoping Boom: The telescoping boom consists of five sections extending up to 25 feet through the use of an electric winch and allows for rotating the lights 360 degrees. To prevent over extending the mast, a visual stop identifier is available as a guide. When extending the mast, operators much watch out for the indicator line. Upon making visual contact with the indicator line during deployment, the operator may stop extending the mast. The telescoping boom is constructed of galvanized steel to resist rusting and corrosion and is capable of withstanding 50 mph winds when extended to its full height and the stabilizing outriggers are deployed. The stabilizing outriggers are a four point design with one located under the trailer tongue, two on the sides and one on the back of the unit. The two side outriggers are adjustable and include 1,000 lbs swivel jacks for leveling and stabilizing the tower.
Housing: All of the operating components are housed within a protective compartment constructed of 14 gauge steel and designed to provide airflow for cooling. A spillage free frame with an external drain system will contain all fluids to prevent road hazards or damage to the environment. Side wing doors provide access to the interior while latches provide secure closing when the unit is in use. The design and construction of this enclosure along with the commercial grade muffler system helps this unit operate at a low 73 Db noise level @ 23 ft. The entire unit can be loaded and unloaded onto trucks via forklift sleeves mounted to the top section of the light mast. The entire unit is mounted onto a two wheel trailer with a 2,000 lbs leaf spring axle. A standard two inch ball coupling and two standard safety chains allow for easy hookup and towing.
Applications: Construction sites, remote locations, industrial operations, outdoor lighting systems, emergency services, camp sites, concerts, events, checkpoints, security, law enforcement, commercial projects, wide area illumination and more.
