telescoping seven stage pneumatic Megatower® from Larson Electronics’
is designed to allow operators to
quickly and safely deploy up to 1,080,000 lumens of high intensity LED lighting in
locations where illumination must be elevated to heights up to 58` for
effective coverage. This light boom can be extended to 58` for maximum area
coverage, and collapsed to 22` for applications where a footprint smaller is
required. The tower is constructed of heat treated aluminum tubing with 2.69`
foot of overlap per section. The mast is elevated using an included hydraulic
ram, and extended to its full height using a trailer mounted air
wide by 109.5" tall and 2" by 2" by 1/4" thick steel mast head is attached to
the upper section of the mast which provides a strong and stable platform for
the sixteen 500 watt LED light heads.
with this Megatower® is one of our wet area suitable GAU-LTL-500W-LED high output LED fixtures producing a combined total of approximately 60,000
lumens at 500 watts. The light head contains forty-eight CREE® high output LEDs
producing 1250 lumens each are arranged in rows and paired with PMMA high purity
optics to produce a well focused 25° wide spot beam that is ideal for providing
far reaching concentrated illumination while still covering a substantial amount
of area. We also offer optional optics with 10° spot, 38° narrow flood, 60°
flood, and 90° wide flood beam spreads. The spot beams are tightly focused and
are designed for high elevation mounting to achieve distance, making spot
versions ideal for high mast and spots lighting. The flood beams are designed to
provide more light over a larger area nearer the fixture, making flood versions
ideal for use as dedicated work and area lights. Each floodlight is securely
fastened to the light boom and each lamp includes a support bracket to help
maintain lamp stability within its housing. The lamps are hard wired into a NEMA
3R panel located on the end of the telescoping boom.

Unlike gas burning and arc type
lamps that have glass bulbs, LEDs have no filaments or fragile housings to break
during operation. Instead of heating a small filament or using a combination of
gases to produce light, light emitting diodes (LEDs) use semi-conductive
materials that illuminate when electric current applied and emitting light. With
LED lights, there is no warm up time or cool down time before re-striking and
provide instant illumination when powered on, adding to the reliability of LED
technology. By nature, LED light sources run significantly cooler than
traditional lamps, reducing the chance of accidental burns and increased
temperatures due to heat emissions. This solid state design of light emitting
diodes provides a more reliable, stable, durable, and energy efficient light
source over traditional lighting.

well as unparalleled heat control, the GAU-LTL-500W-LED series of LED lights
from Larson Electronics also offer IP67 rated construction that is designed to
withstand extremes of environmental and operating conditions. These units can
withstand rapid temperature changes of -40° Celsius to +80° Celsius, are
waterproof, and resist ingress of dust, dirt and humidity. The housings are
formed from die cast aluminum and the optics are high transmission PMMA with 98%
light transmittance. The CREE® LEDs help these units achieve resistance to
vibrations and are rated at 70% lumen maintenance after 80,0000 hours of use. We
recommend these LED lights for use in applications where a lot of vibration,
dust, dirt, dampness and abusive working conditions are encountered.
Heat is the single largest factor in premature LED failure and color shifting.
These LED units feature individual heat sinks per bank of six LEDs to control
heat buildup rather than utilizing a single housing to dissipate heat. This
allows for more thorough cooling of the LEDs for extended operating periods.
This allows the LEDs to be driven at up to 90% capacity without overheating or
visible loss of light output. The end result is more light with less heat and
longer LED life with an average 70% lumen maintenance after 80,000
The pneumatic telescoping boom is constructed of heat treated aluminum with
an powder coated finish and extends up 58` in height. This boom is raised
from and lowered to the folded position by a single hydraulic ram, and extended
or retracted by pnumaitc system with equipped air compressor.
The LED light heads are grouped into banks of four. Each bank in wired into the
NEMA 3R breaker control box at the base of the mast. Operators control the light
heads via an on/off switched breaker per bank of four light heads. The air
compressor and battery charger are also powered from within this breaker box.
Power is provided to the control box via a 20` 10/4 SOOW whip with flying leads
for connected to terminal mount gensets. Operators supply 240/120V or 208/120V
(depending on the configuration) to the light plant. The mast elevation is
controlled by a push button switch to operate the hydraulic ram, allowing
operators to raise the mast to the upright position. The vertical deployment is
operated by an up/down level, allowing operators to extend it to its full 50`
height or retract it to the collapsed height.
entire unit is mounted onto a four wheel, tandem axle trailer constructed of 8"
box steel equipped with axles. Each axle is rated at 7,000 lbs and equipped with
P235/80R16 tubeless tires and wheels. The rear axle is equipped with electric
brakes. Tongue weight is rated at 650 lbs and an adjustable 3” lunnett eye for
pintle hitches provides secure hookup to tow vehicles. A single 7,000 lbs rated
tongue jack provides a stable connect-disconnect platform as well as additional
stability during tower deployment. Standard heavy duty safety chains are
included. This trailer also includes a front mounted storage area for stowing
tools and accessories. The trailer is finished in industrial grade Dupont™ paint
for protection against rust and corrosion and provides an attractive finish.
Overall dimensions of the entire trailer and boom assembly in the stowed for
travel configuration is 21` long by 7’ wide.
7,000 lbs hand crank jacks are used for raising the trailer up off the ground,
and four 7,000 lbs hand crank jacks mounted on extending outriggers are used for
leveling and stabilizing the trailer assembly. Each of the four jacks are
attached to a pivoting outrigger constructed of 6` by 6" by 6.3" steel I-beams.
The jacks can be leveled by hand crank or attachment provided for power drills.
These outriggers can be extended 6` out from the side of the trailer for added
stability. This light plant can withstand 35 mph winds when fully extended. When
lowered to 30`, the mast can withstand 50 mph winds. When lowered to 22`, the
mast can withstand wind speeds up to 95 mph with gusts of 125 mph. Custom builds
can be provided for higher wind speed resistance when fully raised.
