A RER product spotlight featuring lighting equipment.


The TML-4000N trailer-mounted light tower features a narrow 55-inch width and the TML-4000 features a 70-inch width. UHMW slide pads are used throughout the entire tower to prevent metal-to-metal contact and subsequent rust and corrosion. The tower assembly also features a clean and protected power cable path. Genie's tilt-actuating system provides the ability to vertically aim all four lamp fixtures from ground level, reducing the need to lower the tower in order to re-aim the lamps.

Dave Deal, manager of Middletown, Del.-based M.S.P. Equipment, says the units are easy to tow and well liked by his rental customers.

Better lighting, more durable lamp fixtures and improved transportability are just a few of the latest enhancements to Wacker's redesigned light tower line. The new LT series features a redesigned lighting system that offers brighter illumination caused by distinctive elliptical lighting fixtures. The fixtures allow the lamps to be mounted horizontally, allowing more light to travel directly from the source to the work area. Traditional light fixtures rely primarily on reflected light for their illumination.

Terex Amida

The new AL4000 automatic portable floodlight system has a start/stop feature that allows the owner to circumvent the task of manually controlling the light tower. The automatic feature can be set to one of two modes. The first is a timer mode that when set, turns the generator on or off at a particular time. The second is photocell mode, which signals the tower to turn on or off based on the amount of natural light surrounding it. The automatic start/stop feature is optional on all Terex Amida AL-4000 lighting units. It has a reach of 30 feet at full extension. It has four 1,000-watt metal halide lamps that can illuminate up to 7½ acres or provide isolated lighting for evening jobsite applications.
