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

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

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.
