Allmand Introduces the EPL 8N Emergency Power Light Tower

HOLDREGE, Neb. - Allmand introduces the new EPL 8N Emergency Power Light
Tower designed to provide a well-lit area for rescue and recovery sites, such as crime and accident scene investigations, fire and rescue emergencies and natural disaster clean-up areas.

Powered by an 1,800 rpm, 13.6-horsepower Kubota diesel engine, the EPL 8N features
Allmand's exclusive SHO (super high output) lighting system. Equipped with four,
1,000-watt metal halide fixtures, the EPL 8N offers a standard light output of 440,000
lumens-more than three times the light output of traditional quartz lights.

The EPL 8N also incorporates a 500-watt quartz lamp for instant light on the scene. To
further increase light output, the EPL 8N can be equipped with optional 1,250-watt
fixtures, producing as much as 500,000 lumens, while still using the same amount of
power as a quartz lamp.

Completely self-contained, the EPL 8N leaves emergency vehicles free to return to the
station or respond to other emergencies while keeping necessary lighting in place for
clean-up and investigation. Its lightweight design makes it easy to maneuver for rapid
deployment, and its compact size reduces work zone congestion and requires minimal
bay space for storage. The EPL 8N also includes an adjustable height, reversible two-inch ball and pintle hitch and is easily towed behind a pickup truck.

In addition to the benefit of high light output in a self-contained and portable design, the EPL 8N increases flexibility with a 60 Hz, 1-phase 8 kW AVR regulated generator. This feature allows for additional electricity to power auxiliary equipment.
Captive latches on the tower support and outriggers eliminate the potential for lost pins.

The EPL 8N also features a 30-gallon fuel tank constructed of molded polyethylene,
which eliminates the chance of contamination from rust and corrosion associated with
metal tanks. The large capacity fuel tank provides approximately 60 hours of continuous

Using a dual manual winch system, the tower can be raised to 30 feet. A three-point
outrigger system with center-mounted tower assembly gives operational stability in wind
gusts up to 65 miles per hour. Rotating 360 degrees from the ground, the three-section
tower features an exclusive bi-directional, automatic cord reel that distributes and retracts the cable when the tower is raised or lowered.

Optional attachments include a Saf-T-Visor, which redirects wasted skyward light onto
the work site, an electric winch, and the LSC automatic light tower control system. The
LSC100 allows the light tower to be automatically turned on and off as needed, with a
photocell or timer.
