Chicago Pneumatic launches diesel, LED light tower
Chicago Pneumatic launches CPLT H6LED with a 70% reduction in fuel use and 185 hours of run time
Chicago Pneumatic has launched its seventh light tower, the CPLT H6LED, equipped with wheels and featuring LED lamps with specially designed optics to maximise light coverage and brightness.
Four 350W high-efficiency LED lamps provide the equivalent of four 1,000W metal halide lamps for a coverage of up to 5,000m2, while reducing fuel consumption by up to 70%. The transportability is aimed at further reducing overall operational costs.
The stamina of the CPLT H6LED light tower is further enhanced by IP67 protection of its LED lamps, which offer up to 30,000 hours of life before replacement, while the 130-litre fuel tank increases refuelling intervals, for run times of up to 185 hours.
The combination of efficiency, toughness and portability ensures that the new models can meet the demands of applications including construction sites, events, rental and oil and gas.
An optional Lc1003 digital controller provides mast and photocell control and enables alerts to indicate any incidence of low oil pressure, high temperature or engine problems, which can help reduce operational and maintenance costs.
The CPLT H6LED features a galvanized hydraulic seven-metre mast, plus four heavy-duty stabilisers, to ensure reliability and operator safety. Both of these are essential in the challenging conditions in which light towers are likely to operate.
Easy transportation and service have also been factored into the design of the new light tower, which has a compact frame and offers simple access points for maintenance work.
Ignacio Picatoste, spokesperson for light towers at Chicago Pneumatic, said: “Light towers provide essential support to those who work during hours of darkness, enhancing both their productivity and their safety. It is therefore essential that site operators can rely upon this equipment.
“The new series of Chicago Pneumatic light towers harness LED technology for extended running times, longer lifespans and reduced operating costs. The latest addition, the CPLT H6LED, is robust, efficient and powerful enough for even the most demanding jobs.”
The arrival of the new light tower follows the successful launch of the CPLB2LED light tower at Bauma 2016. The CPLT H6LED is the fourth LED light tower in the portfolio and completes Chicago Pneumatic’s offering for 2016.
The three other LED models are the electrically-powered CPLB2LED, the diesel driven CPLT V15LED, which features a Red Rock canopy to optimise durability and toughness, and the diesel driven box frame CPLB6 light tower.
