Wacker Neuson’s new line of light towers offer big benefits in a smaller package. The LTV series features a compact-body design and vertical mast that allows for more units to be transported on a single trailer; 18 units will fit on a 48 foot flatbed truck. But don’t let the size fool you. These light towers are designed for long hours of lighting and industry leading 750 hour service intervals. The LTVs provide plenty of light for general job sites, site prep, concrete pours, special events, parking lots and road/bridge work.
