Doosan Portable Power has expanded its line of portable light towers with the introduction of two small-body model light towers — the LSV6 and LSV8.

The LSV6 and LSV8 include many of the same features and performance as the midsize light tower, but with a compact design and vertical mast that allow for greater maneuverability, ease of transport and a low operating cost, according to the manufacturer.

The LSV6 and LSV8 light towers round out the Doosan Portable Power lineup of vertical mast light towers, complementing the larger model L20.

Both LSV light towers are standard-equipped with a vertical mast that manually extends to 25 ft. 6 in. (7.8 m) with four 1,000-watt metal halide lamps. A hydraulic actuated tower is available as an upgrade option on both LSV models.

“The vertical mast design significantly cuts setup time compared to the traditional laydown mast,” said Deree Bivins, lighting systems product manager, Doosan Portable Power. “Being able to stow the mast on top of the unit also improves transport safety and lowers transport cost with the ability to fit 16 units on a 48-foot flatbed truck.”

The LSV6 and LSV8 are 99.1 in. (251.7 cm) long and 49 in. (124.4 cm) wide with a travel position height of 99 in. (251.4 cm).

The LSV6 is powered by a Tier IV Final-compliant Kubota D1005BG diesel engine with a Mecc Alte 6 kW alternator, and the LSV8 is equipped with a Tier IV Final Kubota D1105 engine and Mecc Alte 8 kW alternator.

The voltage in both light towers allows operators to utilize the receptacle power function to simultaneously power tools or heaters while providing optimal illumination for oil and gas exploration, construction sites, emergency and disaster relief, as well as drilling applications. Both units have a 42.5 gal. diesel fuel tank with a minimum runtime of 82 hours with four 1,000-watt metal halide lamps.

Standard configuration on the LSV6 includes a detachable drawbar for trouble-free towing, one duplex receptacle, a 2-in. (5 cm) ball hitch and a 520 CCA battery. Options on the LSV6 and LSV8 include drip containment, 100 percent containment, combination hitch, electric fuel pump and lockable battery disconnect. Cold weather options include a block heater, block/battery heaters and 1,000 CCA battery. Aftermarket kits are available for both the LSV6 and the LSV8.
