Powered Mast Added for Nightshifter Finale

The Nightshifter NM4000 mobile lighting tower has been fitted with a powered mast to further improve site safety during overnight shifts, as infrastructure and roadwork contractors battle against increasingly demanding H&S regulations.

Originally launched with a manual mast in 2008 for international markets, 2000 of the 4kw Perkins-powered towers were shipped to overseas construction and light mining projects. Of those, 700 were snapped up by contractors in the Middle East.

Much of the NM4000 brand’s success stemmed from its durability and smaller footprint; which quickly made it the tower of choice for metropolitan projects where the need for compact design and mobility posed a problem for many other tower brands.

With the next generation hydraulic Allight Firefly tower heading into mass production, the Perth-based manufacturer’s decision to add a powered mast to a commemorative limited edition NM4000 for the Australian market, seemed a fitting finale, as Sales Director Paul Sowerby explained.

“The manual NM4000 tower made many friends across the Middle East, Africa and Indonesia, but wasn’t designed with our own domestic market’s more stringent operator safety standards in mind,” he said.

“When our new hydraulic Firefly range emerged from the design and R&D studios, it was clear that it would set exciting new standards of safety and portability in all our key global markets. It was at that point that we decided to bring the curtain down on the NM4000. Adding the powered mast to the final production run meant we could pay our last respects by offering the units to our special customers here at home.

“We tell ourselves that this business is all about analysing the customer’s needs and devising a solution to meet them. Normally, assessing a product’s growth prospects is a bit hit and miss, but at the moment, the biggest head-scratcher we have is to how to make the hydraulic Firefly quick enough. Needless to say, that’s not a challenge we mind having to juggle with.”
