DLT-18HD Diesel LED Light Tower


The Metrolite DLT-18HD LED Diesel Light Tower is the perfect solution to your jobsite lighting needs. With a sleek, functional design, this unit provides powerful light and reliable power no matter the scope of the job or the environment.

The low fuel consumption of the DLT-18HD diesel light tower provides savings of up to 45 litres of diesel per day, compared to a traditional 20kW diesel light tower. Additionally, the large 240-litre fuel tank reduces labour costs by increasing the operating time between refueling.

With Metrolite’s built-in automatic load leveler, your light tower’s diesel engine is protected from wet stacking when running at less than prime load.

For added convenience, the DLT-18HD’s interior work compartment features two bright LED lights – because the work doesn’t stop when the sun goes down.

The high efficiency and long runtime of this LED light tower make it a great option for 24/7 operations in the mining , oil and gas, and industrial construction industries as well as emergency response, special events, rural, military and hard-to-reach applications.
