Doosan Portable Power has redesigned the LSC (LightSource Compact) portable light tower and now incorporates features that make it easier to own, use and maintain. Designed for reliability and durability, the LSC light tower — originally introduced in 2010 — is ideal for illumination of special events, road and bridge construction, emergency and disaster relief, oil and gas drilling, mining and general construction sites. The LSC is the perfect complement to any rental equipment fleet, according to the manufacturer.

The LSC portable light tower features a new powertrain, equipped with a Kubota D1005 engine. This 1,800-rpm water-cooled diesel engine meets EPA Tier IV final emission regulations. The power rating of the LSC has been increased to 6 kW with the utilization of a new high output alternator. This additional voltage allows operators to illuminate the unit’s four 1,000-watt metal halide floodlights and utilize the receptacle power function simultaneously.

Fuel tank capacity also has been increased extending the LSC’s runtime to 55 hours. The compact frame design maximizes truckload shipping, with the ability to accommodate 12 fully assembled units on a standard flatbed trailer for more cost-effective transportation.

Improvements to the enclosure make it even more convenient to access the operator control panel. A small curbside door allows operators to safely access the controls without having to open the entire side panel. Integrated hinges also have been added to the street-side to provide easy access to all interior general maintenance components.

The floodlights of the LSC portable light tower provide a NEMA 6 x 7 beam spread for broad light distribution and area coverage. The cast-aluminum fixture housing includes an engineered reflector for optimal light distribution over a wide spread area. The small footprint of the floodlights improves wind load resistance.

Common with all of Doosan’s light towers, the heavy-duty galvanized steel mast of the LSC extends from 12 to 30 ft. (3.6 to 9 m). The mast is raised by dual, hand-operated winches and features an automatic safety brake. Curly cord protection within the steel shroud along the first section of the tower prevents pinch or puncture damage.

At full mast and with all four outriggers/jacks secured, the unit will withstand winds up to 65 mph. The telescoping, rotating tower locks into position for precise aiming of floodlights. For traveling and storage, an automatic locking system holds the tower into place when in the stowed travel position.

The LSC light tower is backed by a factory warranty providing 2-year / 2,000-hour bumper-to-bumper coverage.

Options available for the LSC include a block heater and a combination hitch with a 2.5 in. (6.3 cm) pintle eye and a 2 in. (5 cm) ball.
