Dromad Hire max out the MT1 mini-light

The Dundalk based equipment hire specialists have taken delivery of an innovative new lighting set manufactured by Generac Mobile Products Limited. The MT1 mini-light is the latest tower light to leave the Generac production line and is set to become a popular product within the light equipment rental markets in Ireland and across Europe.

MT1 mini-light has a host of features and benefits each conceived to deliver safe, bright lighting for construction sites, outside events and highway projects. With its manually operated 5.5 metre mast fitted with 4 no. 400watt metal halide lamps, this self-generating lighting tower is ideally suited for illuminating small and medium sized areas. As an option the MT1 can also be fitted with 4 no. 150 watt LED energy saving lamps.

Commenting on this purchase, Dromad Hire’s Seamus Byrne said, “Whilst the demand for our larger lighting sets continues at record levels, our research uncovered a requirement for a compact lighting set, particularly where site access was limited, so the introduction of the MT1 into our fleet was an easy decision to make. The MT1 is a robust lighting product that combines economical operation with safe lighting levels, all set into a modestly sized unit.”

Dromad Hire are the only rental firm in Ireland to offer the MT1 for hire on long or short term hire periods. With the compact minimum dimensions of only 111 x 95 x190 cm and weighing-in at a lightweight 352 kg, the MT1 can be swiftly installed on site ready to position instant, bright, lighting, to exactly where it is needed.

For added security, the MT1 is delivered with two adjustable stabilizers and a covered electrical coil cable alongside sturdy, lockable, doors. Loading and unloading is safely carried out via its central lifting hook and hand trolley, with a wide steering angle. Prolonged lighting is guaranteed from a 20-litre metal fuel tank providing over 30-hours of running time on one single tank of fuel. Power is rendered through an integral 5.0 kVA diesel generating set, boasting whisper quiet noise levels at just 68 dBA at 7-metres and there is a handy auxiliary power output socket for powering small tools. The 3000 rpm, Yanmar, air-cooled diesel engine, is fully guarded with a series of alarms to protect the engine.

Dromad Hire has an extensive range, with over 800 hire products available in store. From their head office in Dundalk they have the ability to service rental clients just about anywhere in Ireland; they currently have seven delivery and support vehicles working around the clock. Their commitment to providing equipment that can demonstrate real sustainable values is reinforced by the introduction of the MT1 to work alongside Generac’s VT Hybrid and VT9 Eco lighting sets. These two products can help to save one tonne of CO2 emissions per month and between 72% and 86% in fuel reduction costs.

Generac Mobile Products UK Limited is the new name for Tower Light (UK) Limited, a leading manufacturer of environmentally sustainable commercial lighting systems. This new identity is to reflect its recent acquisition by the US Company, Generac Holdings Inc.
