Doosan Portable Power has launched the new LVL 50 Hz portable light tower for markets in Russia and the CIS regions. Designed for reliability and durability, the LVL light tower - also available as a 60 Hz model - is ideal for the rental market. The LVL light tower has a compact footprint for increased job site mobility and cost-effective transport.
This latest light source from Doosan Portable Power provides simplicity, practicality and innovation to help customers provide temporary lighting for sites for longer. Applications include lighting for special events, road and bridge construction sites and all general construction applications, as well as providing lighting for emergency and disaster relief, oil and gas drilling and for mining and quarrying locations.
The new LVL light tower has a power train based around the Yanmar L48N5 Tier 2 diesel engine. Thanks to a high output alternator, the LVL provides light and power with class-leading run-time. The fuel tank capacity allows an extended runtime for the four LED lights of 220 hours (200 hours for the 60 Hz version).
The four incredibly efficient and powerful 300 W LED lights provide a total output of 1200 W, providing the same area of lighting coverage as the previous generation metal-halide lighting tower. The durability of the LED lights is also a significant improvement providing up to 50 thousand hours of lifetime. This means that the LVL can be kept running for much longer and at a lower overall cost.
There is also no need to consider cool-down or recharge times as with the previous generation metal-halide lights. The LVL can simply be started up/turned off or moved to a new location as wished, saving time and money.
The practicality of the new unit goes even further, in terms of the improved manoeuvrability. Whether it is the forklift capability, single-point lifting, or towing eye, the user has the benefit of many options for moving the unit. Repositioning the light is very simple, thanks to the 7-metre (23 ft) telescopic extension and full 360-degree rotation. The mast on the light tower is raised by dual, hand-operated winches and features an automatic safety brake.
The new vertical mast also allows more units to fit into a standard 40-feet shipping container, and the units do not even require re-assembly once on site. Set up simply requires the draw bar to be dropped down, the fuel tank to be filled and the unit to be started.
As well as the lighting capability, the LVL also has a 5 amp 230V or 120V (as a 60 Hz option) socket with a multi-region connector for providing power for mobile phones and other electrical devices.
The clamshell-style canopy lifts easily for quick access to service points, ensuring routine maintenance is quick and easy to perform without having to take the machine apart.
As well as generators and light towers for the construction, rental, quarrying, general industry and many other markets, the Doosan Portable Power range includes comprehensive ranges of state-of-the-art portable compressors aimed at the same markets.
