The HIDTH-66X2-70W is one of the newest additions to the Larson Electronics Magnalight line of portable and mobile HID work area lighting solutions. The HIDTH-66X2-70W is a portable and mobile HID lighting solution that is ideal for illuminating large work spaces and produces a 12,600 lumen floodlight beam capable of covering a 600’ long by 575’ feet wide work area. This extendable unit contains dual 70 watt HID lamp heads and incorporates an adjustable trailer hitch mounting system that utilizes the weight of the vehicle to create a stable and highly mobile mounting platform for tower setup in areas where high winds and inclement conditions are commonly encountered.
The HIDTH-66X2-70W HID light tower with trailer hitch from Magnalight provides the high power of HID lighting in a compact package combined with an innovative trailer hitch mounting system. This dual HID lamp head light tower produces 12,600 lumens of light while drawing 140 watts at 8.4 amps from a 12 volt electrical system. This light tower incorporates Magnalight’s innovative trailer hitch mounting system that utilizes the stability of a parked vehicle or heavy equipment to provide solid placement of the HID light tower in areas where heavy winds and rough working conditions would normally cause problems with the tower swaying or tipping over and damaging the unit. The tower assembly on this unit can be adjusted from 3 feet to 8 feet tall and connects to a standard trailer hitch receiver using the standard push bolt and slide pin to lock it into place. This mounting system also provides the ability to adjust the angle position of the entire light tower by loosening a thumb bolt located at the base of the trailer hitch mount, which enables the mount to swivel 180 degrees. The dual HID lamps are attached to the top of the tower via a trunnion and bracket mount and can also be adjusted, allowing the user to position the lights themselves while the tower is in the locked position. The HID light heads on these units are IP67 rated, to be water proof and are designed for good durability under all manner of operating conditions, offering operators the ability to effectively illuminate work areas regardless of how poor the working weather may be. The HIDTH-66X2-70W is 12/24VDC multi-voltage capable, allowing operators to utilize the 12 or 24 volt electrical systems most commonly used in vehicles and heavy equipment. Magnalight has further added to this tower’s mobility and portability by offering several power cord options, including a battery clamp cord as well as a cigarette plug cord, allowing operators to make fast power connections with a minimum of effort.
“Generally operators in the field have vehicles with trailer hitches available, Magnalight now offers a telescoping HID light tower that takes advantage of the trailer hitch and power supply available on most trucks,” said Rob Bresnahan with Larson Electronics’ magnalight.com. “Our trailer hitch mount option is available for all of our HID and LED lighting products. We offer lighting solutions that work on 12/24 volts DC or 120V AC for utility vehicles equipped with inverters. The telescoping light towers collapse to a small, lightweight form factor for storage and portability, but once affixed to the trailer hitch, the vehicle makes an ideal weighted base for even very high wind scenarios.”
