Youngman Group has completed the development of a European trailer version of its TCP Ecolite-T lighting tower, equipped with an adjustable height hitch allowing it to be towed by a wide range of vehicles.

Although adding more than 10% to the cost of the Ecolite, the adjustable height hitch is important for markets including France and Germany. The new hitch also requires a strengthened frame, adding around 150 kg weight to the unit.

The Ecolite, which has been a popular lighting tower in the UK for many years, features auto on-and off- switching depending on light levels, a 170 hour running time on a single tank of fuel, and a bunded base offering 110% machine fluids containment.

Youngman sells the Ecolite worldwide through a joint venture with UK manufacturer TCP. Earlier this year the two companies launched the world’s first fuel cell powered lighting tower.
