JCB promises 50% saving with LED light tower

LED lights with same engine 50% more efficient

The life of expectancy of the LEDs is up to 50,000 hours

The life of expectancy of the LEDs is up to 50,000 hours, so they will last the life of the machine.

JCB has launched an LED version of its LT9 light tower, which it says results in a 50% fuel saving for customers.

The new light tower uses the same 3-cylinder Yanmar engine as the standard LT9, as well the latest LED technology, with six 240W LED lamps providing a total output of 180,000 lumens.

The improved efficiency of LED lights enables the LT9 LED tower to run for 50% longer than the standard LT9 on a single tank of fuel. Features on the new tower include low noise levels of 62dBa at 7m from the 1500rpm Yanmar engine, integrated electronic timer, and 5KW of auxiliary power available even when the LEDs are lit.

Each LED lamp can be individually adjusted for angle and rotation, to provide clear, direct light to suit any application.  The LED lamps have the added benefit of supplying instant illumination, with no requirements for warm up or cool down of the lamps.

“With fuel costs becoming an increasing priority for our customers, the LT9 LED offers a fantastic solution with its ability to run 50% longer than the standard model. The new LED model is of heavy duty specification and with more durable LED lamps it is the ultimate rental product,” said Jonathan Garnham, director and general manager of JCB Power Products.

“The new LED lighting solution complements JCB’s lighting tower range, giving a choice between maximum lit area with the more powerful metal halide bulb unit and the efficiency and durability of the LED unit.”

The new LT9 LED weighs 1100Kg with a full tank of fuel. With no glass or bulbs to replace and a high resistance to breakage, LED ins increasingly finding favour with producers of mobile lighting towers. They have no fine filaments in the lights, eliminating the cost and inconvenience caused by failures of the metal halide bulbs that can easily happen from transport vibration while being delivered to site.
