Portable Light Tower: LED Floodlights Save Fuel
The HiLight V5+ Light Tower has four LED light arrays, with a 140-hour run time on a single tank of fuel. An onboard 3-kW generator can power tools on site. Rated for 10,000 hours of service, the tower’s LEDs consume less power than traditional metal halide lamps. A 2,500-lb onboard winch extends the light tower to its full, 25-ft height. Generating up to 440,000 lumens, the light arrays rotate 360°.

Dust Removal: Rotary Hammer Attachment
Hilti has introduced a dust-removal attachment for its TE 4-A18 cordless rotary hammer. Clipped onto the lower side of the hammer, the attachment is powered by the same 18V battery that drives the tool. According to the manufacturer, the dust-removal system collects up to 97% of the dust generated by drilling, reducing cleanup and improving air quality. No external hoses or power cords are required for the dust-removal system to operate.
Screening Plant: Multisize Aggregate Production
The Spider 514 TS is a track-mounted screening plant designed for secondary screening of rock, sand and gravel. Sporting a 5-ft by 14-ft double-deck screen, it can produce three differently sized aggregates at the same time. The Spider 514 TS can be used as a stand-alone materials screen or, to further reduce material size, alongside a crusher. Powered by a Yanmar Tier 4 Final diesel engine, it features full wireless remote-control options.
