Doosan Portable Power is now offering LED lights as a factory-installed option on its LSC, LS, L6 and L8 light tower models. The fixtures, which were launched at the 2017 World of Concrete, can also be added as an aftermarket retrofit kit.
The LED fixtures are rated to perform for 50,000 hours, and will not need to be replaced during the light tower’s lifecycle. By using less than 1 kilowatt of energy, the LED fixtures leave additional auxiliary power available for using electrical tools such as handheld drills and saws.
Doosan says that while the LED fixtures cost more initially than the standard metal halide lights, they are 50% more fuel efficient, making “it possible for LED fixtures to deliver a return on investment within a handful of years.”
The LED fixtures also offer instant-on and instant-off operation, compared to the 15 to 20 minutes needed for metal halide fixtures to reach full illumination and the time needed for cooldown prior to transport and storage.
