36 Compact Equipment NOVEMBER/DECEMBER 2018 ATLAS COPCO'S ULTRA-PORTABLE LEDS In January, Atlas Copco launched three new electric plug-and-light LED light tow- ers to the U.S. market at World of Concrete 2018 that impressed with portability and efficiently. The HiLight P2+, V2+ and V3+ light towers can be powered directly from an auxiliary power source, a portable generator or the grid. The three energy- efficient additions offer easy portability, safe transportation and durability. The LED lamps on all three new models have a life expectancy of more than 30,000 hours.

Both the LCV6 and LCV8 light towers from Doosan Portable Power personify all those descriptors. Let's not forget the new clamshell-style canopy made of highly durable composite material and the compact footprint that allows for 17 units on a standard flatbed trailer. Both LCV models have a 52-gal diesel fuel tank with the longest runtime in the industry, says the company.

While the most obvious advantage is a significant reduction in electric power requirements allowing smaller engines to be used, the transition has important secondary effects that also impact engine choices. Perkins has a solution. The new 403J-11 diesel was engineered in response to the changing needs of light tower applications. Dis- placing only 1.1 liters, the three-cylinder, normally aspirated 403J-11 produces 24.7 hp (18.4 kW) and meets U.S. Tier 4 Final emissions regulations. Plus, the 403J-11 has an exceptionally long, 1,000-hour service interval along with easy one-side access and simplified maintenance. For more info, visit SOLUTIONS
