Holdrege, Nebraska, US — Allmand Bros introduces the increasingly popular V series vertical light tower configuration as a standard feature for its Maxi-Lite EX series light towers. The ML EX V series offers the convenience of the vertical tower, a significantly extended run-time, a larger, wider and more stable trailer, and added auxiliary power. This multi-purpose unit brings extra versatility to construction, mining, oil and gas worksites, tent cities, and event venues.
With the V series design, the mast on the ML EX V series will vertically telescope and retract from its own housing, resulting in easier setup, simplified shipping, towing and storage, and reduced potential for damage. The V series configuration features a hydraulic lift system, which allows the mast to be completely raised and lowered in less than 30s. Additionally, this innovative design allows for more intuitive light fixture positioning (angle and direction).
The tower is still vertical when retracted, making accurate fixture adjustment fast and simple. Furthermore, the fixtures firmly hold their adjusted position as the tower is raised, and the lights can be operated at any height.
The rugged ML EX V series units deliver an impressive 20, 30, and soon to come 40-kilowatts of power. This provides additional electrical power source for powering temporary work trailers, pumps, additional lighting or other auxiliary equipment.
The standard 135gal fuel capacity on the ML EX V series provides extended operation with less service expense. It is great for remote locations.
The trailer-integrated fuel containment system means the unit is more environmentally friendly than other standard light towers.
More and better light
By utilizing Allmand’s proprietary engineered SHO-HD 1,250W lighting system, the ML EX V series provides 150,000lm per lamp, a 36% increase over competitors’ light towers. An optional Saf-T-Visor™ attachment directs previously wasted light onto the worksite.
Standard features include a modular engine/genset, which allows for simple engine/generator removal or change out. Service is simplified with a hinged ballast panel, which only requires two bolts to be removed for full access. Captive latches on the tower support and outriggers eliminate the potential for lost pins. Optional inside lamp storage for both four and six light models allows for better security of the exclusive SHO lamp fixtures when the lighting system is not being used.
