Atlas Copco’s Hilight Range

Breaks New Ground

Atlas Copco Portable Power i


launching a new range of

light towers designed to of-

fer even more choice that is

right for a given application.

The HiLight V4 and V5+ include a

HardHat canopy as standard, which en-

sures tough protection of internal parts.

This range of light towers is intended to

provide construction firms, outdoor

event organisers and other indus-

trial users with a

dynamic set of

lighting op-

tions to ad-

dress all effi-

ciency and

safety require-

ments, while

retaining a

robust build

quality and

compact size.

The HiLight V4 is within the 4000W metal-halide

light tower segment, while the HiLight V5+ is a premium

model incorporating LED lighting technology and in-

creased fuel efficiency. The V5+ offers significant fuels

savings of up to 60% when compared to the typical fuel

consumption of 6kW Metal Halide solution, creating

industry leading competitive advantage.

The V4 model can illuminate an area of 4,000 m² and

the V5+ can cover approximately 5,000 ² with an average

of 20 lux.

The LED lamps in the latter model are designed for

both portability and performance, and heavy-duty flood-

lights benefit from high ingress protection (IP) and im-

pact protection (IK) ratings. In addition, LED lamps offer

users higher durability without any deterioration in lux


“Several years ago, a light tower could be

considered as a simple commodity product with

limited life expectancy”

said Sergio Salvador, product marketing manager for

the Atlas Copco range of light towers.

“Today, however, we can offer a new level of

durability and value with a multitude of options

for customers and a clear value proposition that

fits with their needs. No longer do buyers need

to compromise by settling for a one-size-fits-all


Safety With Versatility

The extended safety features give users complete peace

of mind, even in the most demanding conditions.

The light towers can be transported with their masts

in a vertical position, enabling safer transportation and

installation. As a result, it is possible to transport up to

20 units on a single truck, while eliminating the time-con-

suming and costly problem of bulbs being broken during

the shipping process.

The vertical mast also aids the installation process

and improves site safety, which is further enhanced with

four heavy-duty stabilisers and a level indicator.

In addition, the new light towers come with the

proven Atlas Copco HardHat canopy as standard. This

offers tough but lightweight protection in order to main-

tain the value of the asset even after many years on the


Other features of the HiLight HardHat range include

a 28 gallon (127 litres) fuel tank, which allows the units

to run for multiple days without the need to refuel.

The light towers are equipped with Kubota EPA Tier

4 engines and offer increased serviceability with wide

wing doors and all components easily accessible.

Environmental considerations have also been taken into

account, with a frame design that prevents oil, fluids

and fuel from leaking out and contaminating the ground.
