Allmand redesigns Maxi-Lite tower
By Sarah Ann McCay05 May 2013
US manufacturer Allmand Bros. has launched a redesign of its Maxi-Lite light tower – the Allmand Maxi-Lite II.
Available in either a traditional lay down style or a V-series hydraulically actuated vertical tower, the new Maxi-Lite II uses a SHO-HD 1250 W engineered lighting system, providing 150000 lumens per lamp.
The new light tower comes with a 100 US gallon (378 l) fuel capacity as standard. Dual rotationally moulded fuel tanks are longitudinally mounted on either side of the enclosure directly over the axle to ensure that the trailer is evenly balanced irrespective of the fuel level.
The light tower's completely redesigned trailer features heavy-gauge formed steel gull-wing style doors that allow complete accessibility to all major engine and generator components. Its remote oil drain enables easy engine servicing. The larger enclosure allows easier service access and accommodates Tier IV Final engines as well as any peripheral attachments they may require.
A new standard five-point stabilizer system features two side sliding outriggers and two rear sliding outriggers, all with captive lock pins and an additional swivel screw jack on the trailer drawbar. Such stabilization enables the Maxi-Lite II to withstand wind gusts up to 65 miles (105 km) per hour.
