Hillhead 2012: ArcGen Hilta launch new lighting
Leading suppliers of onsite power equipment, ArcGen Hilta, unveiled two of their new lighting solutions on the opening day of Hillhead.
Both machines have been designed, built and developed in Great Britain by the team at ArcGen Hilta and SMC and are adaptations of the market leading SMC TL-90 lighting tower, one of the most robust and reliable products in the industry.
The first is the fuel efficient and environmentally friendly SMC Eco90 lighting tower. With a 3,000 rev/min engine, LED road lights and 185 hour running time, the Eco90 offers greater fuel efficiency and fewer carbon emissions than alternative lighting solutions. An adaptation of SMC’s TL-90 lighting tower, the Eco90 also features 4 x 400W metal halide lamps emitting 136,000 lumens, so users don’t have to compromise on light quality.
An additional development from ArcGen Hilta, the SMC TL-90 XTRA lighting tower, was also launched to the UK market at the show. Originally designed by SMC for use in Australian markets, the SMC TL-90 XTRA includes features such as 14in wheels for rough terrain and additional ground clearance, and wind down stabilizers to ensure stability, increasing the robustness of the current model. Coupled with a lockable fuel cap and isolator for added security, the TL-90 XTRA’s features make it suitable for use in the quarrying and mining industries, or projects based in difficult conditions. The machine also has optional extras of the traditional TL-90 fitted as standard, including powertilt and an auto-run timer.
With hydraulically operated masts, 360 degree mast rotation, large fuel tanks, high fuel efficiency and the ability to be equipped with autostart/stop functions, the new products are suitable for any operation.
