International construction equipment specialist Chicago Pneumatic has introduced a new range of light towers for the global construction and portable lighting industry.
Featuring a manual mast, the new CPLT M12 light tower has a proven design that assures ease of use, servicing and operation, and is extremely light and manoeuvrable, making it easy to move to a desired location on a work site.
Sergio Salvador, Chicago Pneumatic’s Light Tower Product Marketing Manager said the CPLT M12 light tower provides the ideal solution for portable light requirements at work sites, night events or emergency response situations, facilitating a robust and reliable way for operators to put light right where they need it.
Key features of the CPLT M12 light towers include a simple to deploy manual mast that extends up to a maximum height of 9.45m; 360° rotation illuminating a large area; four 1000 W lamps capable of generating 440,000 lumens of lighting power; highly-efficient metal halide lamp technology, requiring less power for greater output; 50 Hz and 60 Hz versions; innovative canopy design with a pop-up top for convenient access for operators to reach components during service and maintenance; new Kubota D1105 engine ensuring reliable performance; and high capacity fuel tank providing up to 60-70 hours of continuous operation at 4kW.
The robustly-built CPLT M12 features a MIG-welded unibody trailer that ensures the light tower is able to cope with rough worksite conditions, in addition to a galvanised steel canopy with oven-baked powder coating to resist corrosion.
Additional options available for the CPLT M12 light tower include a high performance fuel filter that delivers 100% separation of water and fuel and filtration of particles over 30 microns; an earth leakage circuit breaker that detects electrical current leaking to the ground; and an emergency stop button located on the outside of the unit near the electrical panel to protect users and equipment.
