Lind Equipment says its Beacon LED Tower delivers as much light as a traditional light head with four 1,000W metal-halide lights, but in a completely unexpected package. The Beacon LED Tower uses direct drive high-efficiency LED lights and runs whisper-quiet on user-supplied generators or when attached to an external power source. Compact and weighing just over 300 lb., the Beacon LED Tower is truly man-portable. Two can be transported in a standard pickup-truck bed. Although Beacon towers don't come with their own power source, they can have a supplemental fuel tank built in with capacity to run the tower using a 2,000W generator for up to 45 hours between refueling. With acquisition costs at half that of traditional light towers, Lind says operating costs can be as low as $ 0.10 per hour. Both models are available with two or four light heads.
