Allmand Bros. Inc. has introduced the new V Series vertical light tower configuration in its Night-Lite PRO Series light towers as well as in its Maxi-Lite line of light towers. With standard light towers, when the light mast is retracted, it must be folded down across the light tower for storage, transport and light fixture adjustment. But with the new V Series design, the mast retracts and telescopes vertically, which results in easier setup, simplified shipping, towing and storage, and reduced potential for damage, according to the manufacturer.
The V Series configuration features a hydraulic lift system, which allows the mast to be completely raised and lowered in less than 30 seconds. Additionally, the new design allows for more intuitive light fixture positioning (angle and direction). With standard light towers, the mast is horizontal when lowered, meaning a bit of trial and error is required to accurately position each fixture. But with the V Series, 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.
Built to be much more compact than standard light towers, the V Series mast and light fixture assembly stay within the footprint of the trailer when lowered. Since it takes up less space, the result is a light tower that’s easier and less expensive to ship, tow and store. Additionally, because the V Series tower doesn’t protrude from the back of the cabinet, there is less chance for accidental damage and injury when towing on today’s tight job sites, according to the manufacturer.
