Made in the USA

The WCDE-6MHL mobile light tower is a self contained towable light tower package that produces enough light to illuminate an area up to 7 acres in size. This unit contains a water cooled diesel engine powering a 11,000 watt generator, which supplies the current for six 1,000 watt metal halide lamps producing 110,000 lumens each, for a combined total of 660,000 lumens of light. This unit can run uninterrupted for up to 45 hours straight without refueling and includes a telescoping light mast which can elevate the six metal halide lamps to a height of 30 feet. This mobile floodlight package is ideal for emergency services, large scale event illumination, construction, mining, industrial operations and anywhere an extended operation capable mobile lighting solution is needed.

Genset: The WCDE-6MHL mobile light tower includes a Kubota Lowboy II GL11000TM genset that houses a Kubota D722 diesel engine that powers the 11KW 120/240V brushless generator. This genset is liquid cooled and features a single phase generator with electric start ignition. The diesel generator runs at 3600 RPM and is equipped with an EPA/CARB Tier 4 emissions system. A 100 gallon fuel cell sits beside the genset and is equipped with an electric fuel delivery system. The fuel cell is constructed of single a heavy gauge steel single wall frame with internal anti-splash baffles. This genset features key operated electric starting, a twelve volt electrical system, liquid cooling, replaceable dry element air cleaner, and a full enclosure for safe operation and protection against the elements. This engine also features cold weather options to improve performance under cold weather conditions.

Lights: The lighting system on this unit is comprised of six 1,000 watt metal halide lamps producing 110,000 lumens of light each attached to the end of the telescoping light boom. These floodlights produce a wide flood light pattern capable of illuminating a minimum of 5 acres with a combined total of 660,000 lumens of light. Each floodlight is securely fastened to the light boom and each lamp includes a support bracket to help maintain lamp stability within its housing. The lamps are connected to the power source via a water tight male pin connector that attaches to a receptacle located on the end of the telescoping boom.

Telescoping Boom: The telescoping boom consists of three sections extending up to 30 feet through the use of two manual self braking winches and allows for rotating the lights 360 degrees. The telescoping boom is constructed of powder coated steel to resist rusting and corrosion and comes powder coated to prevent friction and rusting between tower sections. This system is capable of withstanding 65 mph winds when extended to its full height and the stabilizing outriggers are deployed. The stabilizing outriggers are a three point design with one located under the trailer tongue and two on the rear sides of the unit. The two rear outriggers are adjustable and include 1500 lbs, swivel jacks for leveling and stabilizing the tower.

Wiring/Controls: Each light head is wired into the NEMA 3R breaker control box at the base of the mast. Operators control the light heads via an on/off switched breaker per individual light head.

Trailer: The entire unit is mounted onto a two wheel trailer with a 3,500 lbs leaf spring axle and 15” wheels with protected fenders. A standard two inch ball coupling and two standard safety chains allow for easy hookup and towing. The entire unit can be loaded and unloaded onto trucks via forklift sleeves mounted to the outer section of the light mast.
