Allmand Bros. Inc.’s V Series vertical light tower configuration is 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, according to the manufacturer.
With the V Series design, the mast on the ML EX V Series vertically telescopes and retracts, 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 30 seconds. Additionally, this 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 ML EX V Series units deliver 20 and 30kW of 3-phase power. This provides additional electrical power source for powering temporary work trailers, pumps, additional lighting or other auxiliary equipment.
The standard 135-gal. (511 L) fuel capacity on the ML EX V Series provides extended operation with less service expense and the trailer-integrated fluid containment system means the unit is environmentally friendly.
