let there be light

Red­star adds At­las Copco HiLight light­ing tow­ers to its lineup

Earthmovers & Excavators - - News -

Three new At­las Copco HiLight light­ing tow­ers – in­clud­ing the HiLight B5+, H5+ and V5+ mod­els – are now avail­able through dis­trib­u­tor Red­star Equip­ment.

Red­star says the HiLight range of­fers a wide range to suit a broad range of ap­pli­ca­tions, and has been de­signed for safety, dura­bil­ity and en­ergy ef­fi­ciency.

“At­las Copco’s HiLight light­ing tower range of­fers flex­i­ble light op­tions, ro­bust build qual­ity and a com­pact size for easy trans­porta­tion,” Red­star Equip­ment gen­eral man­ager Richard Crowe says.

The HiLight tow­ers can il­lu­mi­nate an area up to 5000 square me­tres with a 20-lux bright­ness av­er­age, mak­ing them suit­able for res­i­den­tial or road con­struc­tion, oil and gas min­ing and mu­sic or sport­ing events.

The HiLight B5+ is a com­pact unit de­signed to be eas­ily trans­ferrable be­tween jobs, and Crowe says 22 units are able to fit on a 13m truck.

The H5+ is be­ing touted as the most fuel ef­fi­cient of the three new mod­els, keep­ing op­er­at­ing costs down.

“The H5+ of­fers best in-class fuel con­sump­tion, al­low­ing longer run times be­tween re­fu­elling as well as long ser­vice in­ter­vals,” Crowe says. “Fuel con­sump­tion is only 0.5 litres per hour.”

The V5+ model is the most rugged of the three and is en­cased in a HardHat heavy-duty canopy as stan­dard. The LED lamps in the V5+ have a life ex­pectancy of about 30,000 hours.

“The V5+ is per­fect for rental com­pa­nies that are look­ing for ro­bust and easy-to-trans­port light­ing tow­ers to match any site re­quire­ments,” Crowe adds. “It is a very fuel-ef­fi­cient ma­chine us­ing only 0.7 litres of fuel per hour.”
