Multiquip has added battery-powered units to its range of MQ Zero net zero emissions light construction equipment.

Available in two models (the GBBAT3S4M 4-spot light tower and GBBAT8BM balloon light tower), the GloBug light carts are powered by a lithium-ion battery that features a full 8 hours of run time on GBBAT3S4M and 12 hours of run time on GBBAT8BM at full load. 

When used at lesser loads of 400W, the lights can last up to 23.5 (GBBAT8BM) and 24.5 hours (GBBAT3S4M) respectively.

The lights are equipped with two built-in chargers that let users plug into any 110V AC outlets and fully recharge in 5.5 hours. Both can be charged in 11 hours when using one charger. 

In terms of lighting features, the GABBAT3S4M offers four 300W LED lamps that emit 212,000 lumens, while the GBBAT8BM balloon light emits 110,000 lumens of 360° diffused, non-glare LED light that is said to reduce shadows, eye strain, fatigue and promotes safety.

Both models are mounted on a telescopic 4-stage 20-foot mast and have a three-step dimming switch, enabling the operator to control the level of brightness, extend battery run time and reduce light pollution.

According to Multiquip, the new emission free range is ideal as an application in a number of markets, including the events and construction industries, due to the emission free and low noise operation. 

Tim Ardell, CEO, Multiquip, said, “We are excited to highlight our first-ever emission-free battery-powered light carts as Earth Day approaches. As an industry leader, we strive to develop innovative technologies that meet the job site requirements of our customers while minimizing the environmental impact.”
